B-roll shots that will boost your interview style video

Filming an interview? Here are some examples of b-roll shots (supplementary footage) to add to the mix so that your video is more compelling.

Is b-roll essential for your interview Style videos?

B-roll is a super useful asset for your videos. Two good examples of b-roll that you can film for your project are:

  1. Your team solving problems
  2. Your service in action

Watch the video to see a quick example. In this video you’ll see some talking head footage that I’d like to add some b-roll to because without b-roll, viewers might lose interest. I have 2 shots of a ‘team at work’ scenario that I add to my talking head footage. Following that, I add a shot of the subject being discussed in the interview, in action.  The end result? A more compelling video where you not only feature the person being interviewed, but you create engage your audience with storytelling shots.
