Morningstar wanted to conduct an interview between the London and Chicago studios. We decided that the best way to achieve this was as follows. Record 2 x piece-to-camera interviews, one in the US and one in the UK but with the conversation conducted realtime via telephone. Once the interview was complete the footage from both interviews was sent to the edit suite and the footage was then edited together using Final Cut Pro. The clean audio from both sides was used give the effect of a real live studio-to-studio video link up. Uday was in London, Nick was in Chicago

We were asked to capture an on-location shoot @ JPMorgan's central London office
Using only one camera we created the illusion of two cameras by recording the answers to the questions first, then resetting the camera positions and recording the questions and an intro.
This footage was shot using a Panasonic HVX200 and edited using Final Cut Pro
Morningstar hosted their annually investment conference in Vienna and the events department wanted to capture a flavour of the day.
Traveled out the day before, met the local team at the venue upon arrival and did a recce to make sure we hit the ground running the next day.
Spent the night in a hotel then arrived at the venue first thing to capture the whole day.
Registration, networking, presentations, and refreshments
Once back in the edit suite we cut the footage to a piece of copyright free music to keep the costs low and hosted the video on the external server. This allowed the events team to share the video externally.

During the conference we also had to capture a selection of interviews. Above is an example of what we managed to capture. This is Valerio Baselli (Morningstar Italy) interviewing Edward Hugh, one of the chosen speakers at the event
As the budget was tight we only had one camera so we had to film in a "mock 2 camera style". The answers were recorded first and then we quickly reset and captured the questions before letting the interviewee get back to the conference.
We re-used some of the B-Roll shot on the day to enhance the interview. This allowed us to edit the video as if it was a continuous 2x camera shoot.
