Recently, Videomaker was invited to a special reception honoring this year's documentarians nominated for Academy Awards. For this week's "Tips & Tricks" segment, Jennifer has some words from the pros on the trials and tribulations of documentary making.
Yeah, Videomaker IS Cool! What a cool mag and Web site. You are truly the best video mag going. But I have a question. In your Videomaker Presents video program, why just talking heads? You've obviously got the gear and know-how to do B-roll, get closeups of products, etc. The rear screen is hard to see, the guys describing products do ok, but with the actual product in hand, they'd be so much better and the production would be far more effective.
