Tips for On-Camera Video Interview Subjects


Here are a few extra tips to help less-experienced on-camera talent or interviewees. I usually send these on to a client to share with folks prior to the production day.

  • Bring at least one alternative set of clothing to the interview.
  • Herringbone, stripes, or small patterns do not look good on camera. Avoid vivid patterns, plaids, and geometric shapes.
  • Please keep your jewelry simple.
  • Do not wear bright white. Cream, eggshell, or light gray are preferred.
  • Unless told otherwise, maintain eye contact with your interviewer throughout the interview.
  • Relax. Your crew is here to make you look good.
  • It's okay to revisit an interview question, or to occasionally take a "do-over."
