Interviews are one of the most common video types. We see them everywhere; in the news, in documentaries, and of course as stand alone online videos. The interviewee is usually looking just off camera at the interviewer, giving a conversational feel. The background is usually plain or blurred out to maintain the viewer’s focus on the info being delivered.  There are numerous different formats for interview filming, such a one person on-screen and one camera, one-person on-screen and two cameras, two people on-screen and three cameras, and so on.  The additional cameras allow for great options during post and a great variety of angles in the final edit, providing a high quality end product that helps to maintain viewer interest.  The more people on-screen, the more audio channels are required.  The more cameras required, the more operators are needed to operate them.  Both variables affect the complexity of the project and therefore the cost.
