I can't remember the last time that I had to pull out almost every piece of gear that I owned, but that's what happened during the Senior Care Marketing Sales Summit / Summit on Senior Care HR 2017 meetings. I was contracted to provide a small amount of photography for the two meetings, as well as record several interviews with keynote speakers.
No information was provided to me concerning where the set up was going to be, only that "there will be a section available." With this in mind, I brought along 2 Lowel Rifa eXchange 88s which did a fantastic job of casting enough light in what ended up being a dimly lit hallway of a hotel. Not only do these lights provide a lot of light, but there are pretty light, and are easy to set up and break down if you are a one-man crew.
For the interviews, there was no information provided to me concerning additional b-roll, only that the interviews were to be kept under five minutes. With this in mind, I wanted to run a multi-camera shoot to keep the attention of viewers. The only camera's that I own that have 35mm sensors are a Canon 5D Mk2 and a Canon c100 Mk1, so those two made sense to have on my close-up shots. This left the Canon XF300 to cover the wide-shot and handle the dual audio inputs from the Sennheiser ew 112-p G3 wireless microphone.
The last piece of equipment that I brought with me was th Xrite Video Color Checker. Even though I rechecked the white balance of all three cameras consistently, and all of the cameras were Canon brand, each one is going to have a slightly different color balance, and the Color Checker card helps to compensate for this difference by making it easier to match up all the sources in post-production.
