Connecting and switching between multiple camera angles is probably what Switcher Studio is best known for. That said, it is sometimes overlooked how powerful Switcher Studio is as a single camera production. Using one camera with video/ graphic insertion will create more engaging video.
postPerspective, an online magazine, demonstrated this recently at the National Association of Broadcasters. Most of the videos postPerspective created utilized a traditional Switcher Studio setup.
However, some videos required a mobile setup away from the postPerspective booth.
Below is how postPerspective created dynamic video using only one iPhone, Switcher Studio and an iRig handheld Mic.
The first thing to do is gather a list of names for the people who will appear on camera. With the list, you can create lower thirds to insert into the productions. I recommend checking out free online services like Canva. Make sure you save your overlays with transparency.
Now is also a good time to create full screen graphics or videos of any branding you want to use. Below is a video intro we used for each interview.
When it is time to shoot the interviews, arrive a few minutes early and find the person you will interview.
As you can see, a little thought can make your productions go from good to great. Productions incorporating these elements are more engaging and will gather more viewers.
