Geez hand them a MIC and say "Were doing a video and we would like for you to say something on the DVD the ???? will be getting" then step back and say 5-4-3-2-1 Action.
(and get a blank dull stare again)

Why not invest in a mattebox and a follow focus (or any other gear for that matter) to make it not look like a dslr.

Not saying to get fancy while dressing it up, but just something practical that you would use.

Just one more reason NOT to do the interview bit anymore. :D

That was hysterical! Been there, done that.

I posted this story once already, but last year at an event a female guest saw my camera and grabbed me at the bar, demanding 'take our picture.'

I explained it was a video camera, but would be happy to have them say something or whatever. Instead, she gave me the finger...

And it ended up on the final DVD, right? :-)

I'm sorry to say she gave ME the finger. The camera wasn't even pointed at her or rolling. She had no interest in video, apparently.
