What's Up? Looks Too Much Like "Public Access" (again).
RE: "Tom Green Live" - Great show - Tom's an outstanding talent & the overall production is excellent. However, for God's sake, if you're going to do the show with only 2 cameras, please, PLEASE:
1.) Raise the cameras' height (they're too low - Tom & guests both have chronically unflattering close-ups); 2.) Recompose the two-shots (chairs are angled/spaced incorrectly); 3.) Soften, fill & adjust the lighting (it's absolutely atrocious - harsh shadows, etc.); 4.) If CAM 2's head or legs won't adjust any better, at least fix that annoying tilt of the backdrop behind Tom.
C'mon guys, you've got a great show. These simple corrections would help make it look an awful lot better (at least comparatively professional).
I've been producing & directing broadcast television professionally since since 1968 (with 5 national & 4 local Emmy's), and if you need a little help or advice, I'd be more than happy to help out. You need a great A.D. (I don't want to insult your director) - at least a little constructive advice. Tom deserves at least that much.
