Caron Modern Media specializes in calmer interview format and testimonial videos, so to shoot exercises in action at Infinite Fitness was particularly refreshing. The agility of the movements proved invigorating to capture, no matter the model or movement.

Behind The Scenes with Caron Modern Media

Tips, tools and leasons learned on set.

TIP: Recording audio mid-exercise is tricky business, even with a solid lavalier set-up. Caron Modern Media suggests using a smartphone and a nice mic for standing shots, hang a boom mic overhead or add a shotgun mic for moving shots. Then do what you can in post-production to remove background noise.

TOOLS:The Caron Modern Media production team used a professional LED lighting kit, audio and DSLR video recording equipment to film exercises and interview footage. To light Coach Lark’s face in the interview portion, an LED circle light – now deemed our “donut” light – did the trick (though it had to be dimmed to save his vision.)

LESSON OF THE SHOOT: You can’t predict or offset certain conditions for shooting on location. Air conditioners, heavy hallway doors and even water piping in the walls can throw off the audio of your video shoot. Be prepared with several audio recording options to cope with less than favorable conditions. Lavalier microphones, a device smart enough to record high fidelity audio, a shotgun microphone for on-camera audio and over-the-ear headphones are a must!
