PRODUCTION WORKSHOP: Shooting and Lighting for Interviews on 12.5.15



Join Benjamin Eckstein, owner of Beryllium Pictures and Boston-based Producer and Director of Photography, for a 4.5 hour workshop on Shooting & Lighting for Interviews with a Focus on Lighting, Composition & Location Choice on Saturday, December 5th from 9:30am to 2:00pm for just $89 (includes light breakfast & lunch). Click here to register.

Benjamin will provide detailed instruction on how to:

• Walk into a room and choose the best way to set-up an interview (using several different shooting scenarios)

• Gear - what to bring; how many lights, number of cameras, etc. (discussing several types of lighting instruments)

• Local vs. Remote Locations (expanding and contracting gear, crew, etc.)

• Techniques for creating a unified look in a piece, working with interview subjects, and how best to travel with gear (discussing different styles)

Attendees will participate in mock set-ups behind the camera, as crew and as talent. This workshop will give attendees solid hands-on experience, and they will leave with many new skills and techniques for crafting the perfect interview.


Benjamin has worked in video production for 15 years and founded Beryllium Pictures in 2006. While his work involves all aspects of production, he is most at home behind the camera.


Beryllium Pictures is a full-service video production company whose work spans commercials, documentaries, corporate videos, feature films and music videos. Click here to learn more about Beryllium Pictures.
