EyeDirect mark II Interview Kit
The EyeDirect, also known as an ‘Interrotron’, is a useful device designed for interview filming which enables the on-camera subject to maintain eye contact with the person asking the questions. In other words, the interviewee is not staring at the camera lens, but is instead able to have eye contact with the interviewer. By using an EyeDirect the interviewee might feel more at ease with filming and may therefore give a more engaged and authentic response (well, that’s the theory anyway).
On a technical level, the EyeDirect MKII is straightforward to setup, features an adjustable 18″ balance plate and is compatible with almost any size camera/lens combination. Depending on the weight of camera being used, we would usually recommend using the EyeDirect MKII with a tripod such as a Sachtler 18 or 20.
