We thrive on new challenges at bv02, and the Arctic Watch Beluga Cam live stream was one of those new challenges. So new, in fact, that we had to create a technical solution to address some very specific issues we, and the industry, have had little chance to grapple with: an extremely remote Northern location, cameras that would be placed on a tower in the middle of an inlet and the need for a self-contained power source.

Here at bv02 we have shot many a two person interview (or two up). Here are some gear/layout tips and tricks to make the interview looks amazing.
