One of the most challenging aspects of video is interviewing someone for a testimonial. Not everyone has the ability to speak and appear comfortable on camera. So in order to get the most genuine response from the subject (or interviewee), the interviewer has to be adaptive, engaging and inviting.
Color correction is extremely vital for shooting any kind of video these days. And there are tons of filters and softwares out there that can make this once complicated process an easy one.
