27 People One Question

Inspired by 50 People One Question, I asked 27 People One Question at Jeff Pulver
's Breakfast at Ryles in Cambridge Mass on 1/22/09.

Video by:

Panasonic HDC-SD100

Notes on the production:

I used the Fifty People One Question video - London as a guide. I was really inspired by it.

I like the effect they used called a breathing lens. I didn't have time to use it on this video, but I'd like to experiment with it.

The onboard mic has a focus option which makes it a shotgun.

I thought I had that on. I didn't.

Then, I had problems hearing the audio through the headphones so couldn't judge if my wireless lav was working, so I ditched the wireless lav set up and went with the onboard mic.

Unfortunately it was set to suround, not sure why. The last time i used it, it was focus mic.

You must be careful. There is a little graphic on the display screen that shows if hte focus mic is on. I know that now.

The room was very noisy, but the footage was too good to pass up, so I grabbed a Natalie Gelman guitar bed to mask the sound.

I think it helped
