Manhattan, New York – Al Jazeera America brought in a team of 8 from DePalma Productions to produce an interview segment with Dr. Cornel West, an outspoken author and philosopher. Three HDX900 cameras with Pix240 recorders were used to capture the interview on location at the Union Theological Seminary. For lighting, a combination of LED light panels, pattern lights, and various other tungsten fixtures were used to shoot in a room that had character at every angle.
Three additional 17″ HD monitors were set up in a video village for the producer and clients to monitor each camera and call the shots from a distance. As expected, Dr. West was riveting with a unique and intelligent perspective.
