lens choice based on frame size & backdrop distance

Hi all,

I'm shooting some interviews in a studio in a couple of weeks & I need some help figuring out distances relative to the subject, camera & lens choice.

The camera is a 35mm sensor (lensing: 19mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 90mm). I will be shooting the subjects against a 12ft wide backdrop.

I need the subject to be about 3-4 ft away from the backdrop with a horizontal frame. Which lens do I use to have a full body shot of the subject per lens? Extending the backdrop in post is unfortunately not an option.

I would appreciate if someone could point me toward a resource that can help me figure out these distances for the future.

Thanks,
