I'd never seen these interviews, so I had to google them. I like the concept.

Off the top of my head, I'd suggest having a dedicated sound guy with good mics - gotchas include interference and picking up too much ambient noise.

I'd make sure that you have the focal length on the cameras to get the tight shots you want from a distance. Also you'd want to have some type of communications worked out between the camera crew, not to mention deciding on your angles and coverage. A good PA would be helpful.

A good location scout to maximize the available light would be good, though in the ones I saw, it didn't seem like they were too worried about matching lighting across the cameras, in fact, almost the opposite. You'd also want to make sure you set up in an area that has good movement, where people will travel through the shot, rather than stop and gather.

Anyways, those are just some things off the top of my head. It looks like a great technique to use.
