How do we shoot a show? What super-cool tech do we use to bring you the best podcasts? We'll let you in on all our secrets...
Behind the scenes at GeekBeatTV and Livid Lobster!
When we shoot the show, we use the big Canon XF300, with a full-sized teleprompter. Dave records the show directly onto the Camcorder's Compact Flash card which he then imports into Final Cut Pro.
There are a couple places where the production of Pelpina's show differs from GeekBeat. WebBeat is still using a green screen, and Norm uses the TriCaster to add lower thirds and do cuts while shooting, so there's less editing to do afterward.
It can be pretty wild out there on the roads, and even if you're a safe driver, we know there are lots of other people around who aren't! So play it safe, and always make sure you have your seatbelt on.
Our Production Workflow and Gear
From writing the show to shooting it, and finally editing and sending off to our distributors so you all can enjoy it, production of a show takes about 6 hours.
