We want you video interview to look as good as possible. Below are 3 examples of great quality shoots.
• Select 3 dates / time that you are available for an interview. We will select one of the dates. Since Behind The Mic is based in St. Paul MN USA, be sure to include the name of the city & country where you are located.
• We suggest 1 or 2 individuals participate in the interview; however, the entire group is welcome if you wish.
• Very Important!
We recommend someone to act as a videographer. DSLR cameras are excellent for capturing the interview. Be sure to use a tripod. Two cameras can add interest but are not necessary.
• Do Not Overlook Audio Quality
Please include a lavalier or a boom mic at close proximity for quality vocal recording (outside the frame of the video). Do not use the microphone built in to your camera.
• We will correspond with each other via FaceTime (Mac OS X / iPad). This will not appear on the video. It simply gives us the opportunity to see each other. In order to see each other on FaceTime, we will need your email address and phone number.
• Choose a pleasant-looking room with plenty of natural light. If you need lighting, use cfl (white) lights in a softbox.
• Close-up shots alternating with a full shot or different angles add interest.
• We will send 5 questions in advance of the interview as a start. Feel free to direct the conversation concerning ideas you wish to promote.
• Be sure you send us a quality .jpg of yourself and the group.
• Send us your .mp4 files. We will edit & post the final project.
• We’ll send you the completed html webpage in advance. You are welcome to edit, make corrections as you see fit.
