Storme at Eleven 72 posted a good summary about the basics needed for shooting good interviews (technically). Important things to keep in mind:
- Don’t use the camera mic!
- Focus and exposure
- Check your footage (don’t assume it is working)
I think there is encouragement that with a little grounding in the basics we can do more to tell the story of our church better. There are a lot of stories out there to be told, we just need a few willing volunteers to help capture and tell those stories. Don’t let the technicalities scare you from trying!
