Adam Noyes (Video production Specialist at Videoguys) goes over a basic 3 camera setup for broadcasting weddings and events.
A Three Camera Multi-Cam Set Up Will Help You:
- Achieve a more professional look
- Maintain audience interest by switching throughout production
- Help your audience focus on points of interest
- Have a backup camera available when necessary
- Access more options to reintroduce and repackage production in post
Camera 1 is the wide to capture as much information as possible. Thus the camera can be locked down.
Camera 2 is off to the side. Focus on the aisle and the audience.
Let Camera 3 be an extra perspective. Make this one for mediums and close ups while the other two stay pretty wide. Rarely should you get close ups.
The bonus cam can be on the altar. Mounting it behind the officiant can add another unique angle to cut to during the ceremony.
