How many people does it take to make a good video?

David Pogue’s videos sure have gotten more interesting–in part because of their better production. The little details matter. He’s quite entertaining.

When I watch his clips it increases my belief that there need to be even better tools for producing nicer videos. I ask myself, “What technologies do you need to produce videos similar to how he does it?” or “What two or three techniques might make single-person produced even better?”

Where are Robots–or at least automated cameras–when you need them? 🙂

For the most part I agree, but there are many exceptions to almost any rule. The first example I could think of would be Ze Frank’s The Show. I would say the result is a combination of: personality, content, equipment, crew, and post-production. I think an excellent show can lack one or more of these if the rest are excellent.

Of those you list I think a strong personality can make up for a lot of missing things. It’s definitely the hardest to fake.
