Video Editing of Introductions to Interviews and Presentations

Video Editing for Two Different Organizations

Quality video editing of introductions to interviews and presentations  are really important if you want to get your audience’s attention. We’ve been creating intros for more than 30 years and understand how important they are for not only getting, but retaining an audience’s focus.

Event and Interview Video Example

Event and Interview Video Example

We were hired to film and edit a unique event and interview video for Jennifer Walker. She has a circus act consisting of 6 trained zebras performing for ‘children of all ages’. Parents generally take their children to see this unique show. Based in Florida, she travels throughout the country performing her act.

Jennifer’s Zebra Act

We filmed this with only one camera, as the budget was small. We filmed her interview first and then filmed the event. For post production we included an animated title and interspersed the interview and event footage with Jennifer’s voice over. Editing cut-aways along with voice over of the interviewee is an effective way to mix things up and create variety in the video. Read more

Adding b-roll and Cutaways to Your Interview Video

Cutaways for Your Interview Video

As I mentioned in my last blog, b-roll or cutaway footage is video we use to break up the monotony of just looking at a speaker in your interview video. In addition to using more than one camera to film a subject, adding cutaway footage is another element that you can add to retain viewer interest. Here’s an example of what we did for a Canadian company:

Two Camera Interview Video Demo

Two Camera Interview Video

The two camera interview video is much more interesting to watch than seeing just one camera. This is especially true if we’re only seeing a ‘talking head.’ There are several ways we can set up two cameras for the two camera shoot. One camera might be focused straight on the subject and the other camera could be getting the side of the subject’s face. I’m not too fond of this setup, as I always like to see the subject talking to the audience rather than the distancing side view. I like to see two direct shots as we did for Peak 10, shown below.
