T600 Producer's Logbook

Lighting, audio & camera techniques

Camera:

Always move the camera (use a little motion even for still pictures).

Mounts include:

  • car
  • jib
  • slider
  • boat
  • airplane

Lighting:

For interview lighting I use narrow/upstage lighting (as opposed to broad/downstage lighting)

Usually use a softbox for key

Sometimes use a portable LED

Usually don't light B-roll unless it's really dark

Audio:

Almost always use a lavaliere for interview audio

Sometimes a wireless (if the talent needs to move & talk)

Camera mic for B-roll
