LMR Live show as a Podcast?
November 21, 2010
Hey Chris and Rik,
I know your posting the live show on ustream, but what about taking the next step and making a podcast available for download on iTunes? or is this already done and I dont know it?
because of the number of eye balls on iTunes, it would be amazing exposure for LetsMakeRobots. eventually you could even have sponsors that would pay real money, or at least throw you a servo once in a while.
I listen and watch a lot of podcasts, and judging by what I've seen from some of them, the LMR Live show is perfect material.
sorry to hear Chris wasnt available this past week (epsiode # 12), but it gave Frits a chance for some spotlight too.
you probably already most of the gear you need, and both of you seem comfortable in front of the camera (or should I say, damn comfortable). now you just need to convince Apple your worthy of the iTunes podcast outlet. (maybe youve already tried that, I dont know).
General tip on lighting: lighting should be behind the camera, keep the light out of the camera eye, and instead point the light at the people. same as when taking pictures indoors - dont point camera at a window where all the light is coming in, blinding the camera eyeball.
good luck, keep up the good work.
