Explore professional interview filming locations in Chicago

There is more to holding an interview than simply choosing the nearest empty room. You must take into account how many folks you plan to interview as well as the room itself. For interview films there should be space for not only the panel of interviewers and your interviewee but also your video recording equipment. As folks enter and leave a room there needs to be a few feet of space kept in between them and any equipment stands, lest they trip and hurt themselves or break your audio-visual tech.

The importance of a quiet interview filming location in Chicago

If you're looking to record video footage of an interview or hold one via Zoom then it's important to have quiet surroundings free of distracting elements. Many of the best quiet interview filming locations in Chicago are dedicated room rentals where noise is eliminated through fewer people around.
Downtown settings may make noise an inevitable part of the background; fortunately many rooms include sound-proofing like dampening panels. Directional microphones, which many filming venues and audio studios provide, will help cut out noise even further. We recommend looking into libraries, hotel conference rooms, and coworking spaces. All three of these venues prioritize cutting out all distractions, ensuring your interview film is captured successfully.

Modern interview studios in Chicago

Once you have noise under control start thinking about additional accessories. Do you need projectors, wi-fi, computers, or speakers? What about the decor? The surroundings should change depending on whether you're interviewing an artist, politician, or businessman. A corporate office is a fine setting for the head of a Fortune 500 company, while the natural light filled studio of a painter is a better choice for artistic interviews.
Many filmmaking co-ops and professional videographers provide interview recording, freeing you from having to figure out how to create a video if that's not in your skillset. Some interview studio rentals in Chicago even include support staff with videography talents.

Discover Natural Light Interview Spaces in Chicago

Lofts, art galleries, and warehouses are some of the best natural light interview spaces in Chicago. They come tastefully furnished with curated artistic content or interior decor that can invoke a professional, contemporary, or urban industrial character. Others are blank slates, giving you free reign to impose your vision on the interview space. Chicago interview spaces are endlessly flexible and match a wide range of budgets and size needs!
