      Anyone know of any good resources for lighting techniques for a two person, three camera over-the-shoulder interview? I need to light both the interviewer, and the interviewee, and they will be facing each other. There would be one camera on each person, plus a third camera as a wide shot.

      Here’s a little tip for people sitting next to each other. Put one light behind person 1 so it acts as a fill for them and a key light for person 2. do the same for the other person. You can also use one more light behind the actors for the back light. (wide enough for both of the actors) I hope that makes sense and can help you out.
