Sincerity and intimacy comes with the use of an ‘eye-direct‘. This piece of kit obscures the camera and replaces the lens with a reflection of the interviewers face. This enables us to capture natural human conversations from contributors, who are also looking right into the lens of the camera. Often called ‘direct address’, the technique achieves much more engaging video content. Evidence shows that audiences respond very well to this production technique.
