Stevo week 3

Got a shorter one for you budding camera ops this week

3. YOU ARE IN CHARGE!

Imagine it’s 5 minutes into the interview and you realise you’re soft, the person doing the demo you’re filming is going too fast, the mic isn’t in the best place or you realise you’ve set the interview up somewhere noisy.

Now is the time to mention this stuff.

Now.

Later will be too late and you’re the only person with the power to make it okay. Don’t leave it for the editor to fix later because a) that’s not their job, and b) they’re not a wizard with a time machine. You are in charge. At the risk of embarrassment, step in and get it right.
