Out of Focus: Sync Pop-n-Locking with Brek Shea

By Scott Riddell

When shooting multi-camera interviews, it's helpful to use a utility of some kind to sync up the audio and video from those cameras in the post-production process.

Sometimes it's done with a clapperboard (in the movies, it's the little black-and-white board with an arm that snaps down, usually with the movie name and scene written on it). In this case, FC Dallas midfielder Brek Shea was our "sync popper", so I asked him to clap each time we started recording, which ended up being eight takes in all. He certainly made the most of his new responsibility.
