Is is possible to video and interview using one camcorder where both the interviewer and interviewee are both seen on the video at the same time. I reckon this would be the simplest way to make a video interview.
Hi Brian –
If you’re limited to a single camera, a method I (and others) have used is to record the interviewee twice – once tight and once medium wide, then record the interviewer twice – same way and finally record both wide. Then put it all together in post.
If you want to do it in one take and get that live feel simply watch a Nascar race and see how it is done. This is the methodI use since I mostly record racing.
