Vietnam, as many other countries, has a lot of meeting, conference, ceremony, event that sometimes need to be filmed and recorded as marketing, branding purpose; or to use as a part of a documentary or reference for future use.
A lot of meeting, conference, ceremony happens indoor in hotel’s conference room, or office, but also a lot happens outdoor at school’s yard, a park, an exhibition center or so.
Due to budgeting and purposes, filming a meeting, conference, ceremony or event in Vietnam would either need just 01 camera, or multiple cameras.
In case of using 01 camera
The cameraman need to move at different locations and directions to make it feel like there are many cameras and to record all angles of the event. And cameraman would need to use both tripod and gimbal for flexibility of filming; as well as lenses that are suitable for taking both long shots and close-ups.
An example of equipment set for 01 camera:
- Camera: Sony fx30.
- Lense: tamr 17 70 f2.8
- Mic rode go2
- Light: godox sl100
In case of using multiple cameras
The cameramen may also need to move around to capture different angles and people. However, they need to try as much as possible to avoid filming each other. Though sometimes it may happen if filming a close up needed.
