When setting up for an interview, always arrive at the location early so that you have time to set it up before the interviewee arrives. It is even better if you have checked out the location earlier and have an idea of the place. You need to think about where you want to place your interviewee, how you are going to frame your interviewee and what is the backdrop of the interview.

In scouting for a location for the interview, try to place the interviewee in a setting that is related to his work or the topic of the interview. For example, if you are filming a lecturer, place him in a classroom setting. If you are filming a researcher, film him in a laboratory. If you are filming a painter, set him up in a studio with his paintings.
