I have always loved watching Cable news and was inspired to recreate the "Talking Heads" feel. when the pandemic hit and Zoom became a household name, I knew I had a chance here to make something like the "Talking heads/Talk show" so I reached out to my friend, a semi-retired MTV director and it turns out he was doing a podcast over Zoom with his friend, a semi-retired actor from Saturday Night Live.
Challanges for the show involve our hosts living a couple thousand miles apart from each other with one in California and the other in Iowa, and myself living in Canada: however because of Zoom, Dropbox, Blender and OBS, they may as well be in different offices in the same building!
I showed my workflow to take their show and produce a youtube channel/streaming show with a superior look when compared to other "Zoom Talkshows".
Blender became an integral part of the process and the Multicam effect strip allows me to switch "Cameras" in near realtime. Blender has really become an important part of our pipeline and we have infinite possibilities.
