Videographer training: How to conduct an off-camera style interview (+video) Blog Feature

What is the off-camera style interview?

Off-camera interviewing is a technique used in all types of digital sales and marketing videos, wherein a videographer or video producer sitting off-camera prompts on-camera talent with questions.

The answers to those questions are then cut together — with the prompting, off-camera questions cut out — for a final, clean video that looks friendly, conversational, and natural. 

Off-camera style video example

For example, this approach works really well for employee bio videos (which are one of The Selling 7):
