When Video Became Important to Me…
On Monday, I decided I wanted to shoot something during my lunch. My goal was to produce something just for practice. I had no script and shot it in two takes (aside from b-roll).
One of the things I was rather pleased with was the audio… kinda. I filmed the piece with a Rode VideoMic Pro mounted on the camera. I wouldn’t normally shot an interview this way. If I had more time, I would have a more proper setup with a microphone right overhead. But lunch breaks are pretty short.
For what it was worth, it picked up the sound well and with auto gain control off on my T2i, it was really clean (thanks Magic Lantern!). This would be a decent setup for a run-n-gun situation.
So the video above is what I made. It turned out to be good practice in both shooting and editing. Hope you enjoy it!
