TV Show Production on a Budget

It’s amazing what you can do these days with a limited production budget and some knowledge… including producing a national TV show.

Technology, within regard to video production, is an amazing thing. It’s constantly improving on a weekly basis on all fronts, including hardware and software. If you don’t stay in touch with the changes you are not doing yourself any favors. I can vouch for this with my own ... (more)
