I have a quick question: I notice that you make cuts from wide shots to close ups from time to time. Do you do multiple takes of these episodes? Do you shot with multiple cameras? If not, how are you enlarging the close ups shots without degrading the quality? Are you shooting in say, 1080, then putting it off to 720? Just curious how you go about doing this for your videos. Keep up the good work!


I wonder the same exact thing and was just about to post the same question! BTW, awesome videos. You provide such a wealth of info, help, resources, insight. SO AWESOME.


any info would be great


I am not sure how Nick went about it, but often i shoot the way you described, I shoot at a higher res then my destination format so i can get multiple shoot from one take. This works really well for interviews and other similar subjects but at the end of the day you are still just zooming in. So if you want it to really feel like multiple cameras you will have to do multiple takes.


i just replied, and sent a message for nick to check it out.


Thank you so much Brad!
