I wanted a different look for each person, so I positioned Richard and Fiz for different backgrounds.
Oh, I do love symmetry. When I saw the windows in the background, I had to position Fiz right in the centre.
I could also position for the window film to be at the two thirds mark.
It was a rather grey background, so to make it more interesting/corporate, I added orange filters to the front lights and cooled the white balance to make the background blue.
With my flat picture style, I had to do some simple colour correcting.
The video was interspersed with prerecorded interviews with key phrases slowly zooming. They wanted to keep it as plain as possible.
Without any b-roll to cover the cuts in the client’s lines, I had to film takes at different zoom lengths for more pleasing cuts and a variety of compositions.
Also, Fiz used her hands a lot, so I had to include them.
