Our last project of 2015 was a 3 episode series for InteractiveOne. Hosted by Smokey Fontaine, it featured a performance and interview with Grammy Award-winning R&B artist Monica.
This was our second time getting to shoot Monica and it’s always a pleasure. She provides genuine answers to all questions and in this video, performed the song that put her on the map back in the early ’90s.
We shot the interview with 4 cameras (3 Canon C300s and 1 Canon C100) and the performance with 5 cameras (an additional C100) to keep the compositions dynamic and allow for a higher energy edit. We also broke out the Losmandy Porta-jib and Glidecam for movement during the performance.
