Hello all!

I'm starting a documentary project of sorts. My main area of expertise is video editing, but I'm being asked to do some filming. One camera we'll be using is the Nikon D5200. Our filming will include interviews and filler shots (people discussing a topic, or working on a project). We may be doing outside shots, but that will come later. For now, it's basic indoor shooting, no low-light issues that I can think of. Could anyone give me some ideas as to the best video settings for filming something like this? Or really, just the best basic video settings.

I've watched some videos and I'm seeing 1080p at 24p. Does that sound good? Any other settings I should know about?

Thanks so much guys!
