It’s inspiring to work with people who change the world, and last month, we worked with a great man, Elie Wiesel, holocaust survivor and political activist. He is the author of 57 books that were inspired by his experiences in life. His most recognized book, Night, is based on his experiences as a prisioner in a concentration camp during the second world war. Wiesel was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1986 for speaking out about racism, violence and repression.

Our Tampa video production company was humbled and honored to film an interview with him, as well as photograph him. “I remember reading his book Night in high school,” says Christian Cashmir, Litewave Media founder, “It really changed the way I saw the world as a young person. To meet the man behind this book and so many others was a really amazing experience.”

The interview was setup at a local college in St. Petersburg, Florida where Wiesel was speaking. Our Tampa video crew arrived at Eckerd College and began setting up and lighting the location. We brought our Tampa grip truck and lit the interview with Kino Flo Divas and an LED light kit to complement the natural daylight from the windows. We filmed the interview with a Canon C100 video camera and a Canon 5D Mark III.

Elie spoke about his personal experiences, the obstacles he has had to face and the support he received from his family and friends. It was very interesting hearing his perspective and insights to the world.
