Interview with Geoff Ward

The interview with Geoff Ward that I shot last week (about Daisy Suckley) went pretty well. Ken Burns led the interview, and I somehow managed to light, run sound, and control two cameras all by my lonesome (I definitely wouldn’t recommend it). It was quick (about 30 minutes), but Geoff squeezed some great info into that half-hour. The piece will be edited soon, and distributed with The Roosevelts DVD/Bluray set as a special feature. It may also serve as a filler piece on PBS (that’s unknown at this time).

Shot on the Sony FS100, Rokinon 35mm ƒ1.4

Shot on the Canon 5D Mark 3, Canon 70-200mm ƒ2.8 IS II

The close up shot is from the Canon 5DMK3, with the Canon 70-200mm ƒ2.8 IS II. I don’t know off hand what that particular focal length is (I was hanging around the 130-200mm mark for the most part). The wide is shot with the Sony FS100, with a Rokinon 35mm ƒ1.4 lens on it. I did some slight correcting to ballpark the two shots for editing purposes.
