FYI Network – “Tiny House Hunting” / Season 2, Episode 6
John S. Meyer, Director of Photography
Tiny House Hunting is an awesome example of a show with a relatively simple concept, executed beautifully. Working with Director Michael Bridenstine, we were able to efficiently and expertly document the experiences of people house-hunting for tiny houses.
These episodes are essentially shot “film-style”, with a single camera. So, cast members were instructed that they would be required to repeat actions multiple times, such as a walk-through to view a kitchen.
We would shoot a master shot as well as two opposing angles, then POVs and cutaways. After the main action, extensive beauty shots were done with both jib and slider to increase the production value.
