Talking Heads – Autocue or Interview?
When planning a talking head video, clients often ask if we recommend using an autocue or interviewer.
Autocue is generally best if:
- the content is instructional
- there’s a lot of detailed information to present
- there’s a short time slot to film in
If you go here you’ll see various Talking Heads videos using autocue – all ‘presenters’ are clients, using autocue, except Glen, a professional presenter, in the Standard Life Healthcare video.
The interview approach works better if:
- a conversational style is required
- there’s more time to shoot and edit
On this page you’ll see clients talking without autocue, to an off-camera client interviewer – often a more ‘natural’ result but also more time consuming
On some shoots we take the off-camera client interviewer approach, but bring along the autocue as a back-up.
Whichever route we take, clients invariably tell us we made it much easier than they were expecting!
