Canon Europe with Anastasia Mikova, Philippine Merolle, Marion Gaborit & Saskia Weber On the EOS C300 Mark II, Shows “Interviewing For Woman” from a behind-the-scenes documentary across 50 countries interviewing the lives of women Worldwide, On the EOS C300 Mark II.
From Canon Europe:
“We go behind the scenes of the filming of Woman, the follow-up to Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s epic documentary, Human. It’s co-directed by Anastasia Mikova and, like its predecessor, centers on intimate first-person interviews shot all over the world.”
“By the time filming wraps up, the team will have covered close to 50 countries, accumulating hundreds of hours of interview footage. A journalist and cinematographer team spends two or three weeks in each country, filming up to 25 interviews with women. The producers also work closely with journalists, researchers and NGOs on the ground months ahead of the trip to source and brief women with relevant stories. Some of these will be ‘ordinary’, anonymous women who may never have been interviewed before, while others are pioneering public figures such as education campaigner Malala Yousafzai or Mozambique politician Graça Machel.”
“A Canon EOS C300 Mark II with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens was positioned 2.6 metres from the interviewee’s chair. The room was always quiet and dark, with a black backdrop. Present were the woman, the interviewer, a cinematographer and sometimes a translator.”
