A promotional video for Winchester Karate Academy
Karate is a high energy and exciting combat sport. When we were approached by Winchester Karate Academy we knew that we needed to keep the visuals at maximum, even during our interview with club leader Simon Budden.
However, the logistics of filming an interview in front of the class posed two problems; the first being that, as the instructor, Simon needed to be overseeing the group, and the second being the amount of noise that came from the group fighting in an echoey hall.
Instead of leaving the shoot with a badly shot interview or risking the safety of the class, we decided that the simplest thing to do was to film Simon in front of a green screen at the end of the session and overlay it on top of carefully filmed footage from earlier in the day. The result is a convincing and vibrant interview that drives the video wonderfully.
