Taking a Deep Dive Into Video Production
policyware (yes, all lowercase) is a company that provides online courses on topics of public policy. Policyware calls these courses “Deep Dives, and uses world-class experts from top think tanks to teach the intense two-week classes. MTI got the call to produce a Deep Dive for policyware, which involved creating four hours of video, to be edited into 30- and 40-minute segments, on the topic of data and trade. Dr. Emily Gustafsson-Wright, a Senior Fellow in the Global Economy and Development Program at the Brookings Institution, was the on-camera presenter. All MTI productions follow strict Covid guidelines and all staff and crew are fully vaccinated.
Double- and Triple-Duty is the Single Solution
The director, cameraman, and editor on the project was one person: Shawn Chadwick. Because audio is the most important part of any video production, the subject was double-mic’d, with the signals from both microphones feeding directly into the Sony FS7 camera. And the full HD video was also double recorded — onto the camera and also on the Atomos Shogun 7 monitor. The Shogun 7 is both a monitor and recording device, providing high-definition images for making sure everything that needs to be in focus is in focus, and also lets you capture an extra feed of 4K footage for safety. Aperture lights were used for a bright, even look.
