Once we have the basic story outline and pre-interview complete, we begin filming B-roll. What this means is that we visit the location and gather as much environmental footage as we can to use as either filler footage, or for putting a visual to what the subject is saying.
We filmed for about an hour and walked away with about 30-45 seconds worth of usable footage. This doesn’t sound like a lot, but it really is.
The filming portion includes: setup, tear down, composition, lighting, camera adjustments, etc.
Here is a still from one of our shots.
