Being Open to Improvising On Location Is Key to Success
MTI was hired by Amy Thompson of Crew Atlanta for a one-day, one-camera shoot. Crew Atlanta is a leading organization for senior-level executive women in the Atlanta commercial real estate field and the subject of the video was Sonya Miller, Senior Director, Enterprise Clients, at Colliers, the global real estate services and investment management company, with offices in Washington, D.C.
It turned out that the shoot was Sonya’s first time on camera and reading from a Tele-prompter. There was nothing to worry about because Field Producer Bill Scanlan was on-hand to provide expert coaching.
Along with Bill, the full crew consisted of Videographer Ian Sbalcio, Prompter operator Sharon Sobel, and Photographer Wesley Bailey III.
Equipment was the Sony FS7 MarkII, Aperture lights, and an Elgato Stream Deck so that the Crew Atlanta team could oversee the production over Zoom.
Creating the Moment
Because the location was the company’s offices, there was not a built-in set. So Cameraman Ian looked around and created a set on the spot. By moving some plants and furniture around, Ian turned the kitchen into the perfect background for the video. As the photo indicates, it was a great choice.
Even the simplest jobs require on-the-spot decision making and MTI’s professional crews are always prepared for anything.
