Building a Television Studio in your Basement

HoggBrian.gifPNME 2007 #46: Building a Television Studio in your Basement

In the world of video podcasting, there are far fewer scripted shows than there are videoblogs and interview shows. Why is that? One of the reasons is that creating a scripted video podcast, even a simple one, can be a much larger undertaking than other types of shows. While many of the lessons you need to learn aren?t unique to the online space (filming, editing, writing, and acting, deciding what the show should be about), many of them are: How do you find the time to build what is essentially a TV show from scratch? Where do you find the space? How do you produce high-quality scripted content with a limited or non-existent budget, in your spare time? Brian Hogg, creator of dotBoom, shares his personal experiences with putting out a weekly scripted, serialized show, pulling back the curtain to expose his process, and offer some tips and tricks to others who?d like to build a television studio in their basement.
