Q & A Panels

Presented for review is a collection of Q & A panels for which we shot and edited. Most of the set-ups were 2 camera set-ups with an occasional project that required up to 4 cameras. The audio was captured by tapping into the mixer boards to grab the audio signals sent from the microphones of which we used to sync all footage during the editing process. We also performed all the editing and post-production work such as color riming, contrast correction, and motion graphics. Enjoy!
