teh endorsements, the goofy but still geeky(which is good) products you introduce. The Gizmatic Segment.
The key here is that there's no smooth transition from Andru's speech to Sparky's speech. As much as I abhor segueways, it does do it's job. Like that segway into the Shaving Gillette Fusion segment. Corny but coy and effective. It's also weird to see the same colored laptops.
I actually like the content of the Gizmatic segment. Just not some of the technical details. The exact thing about this recent episode was that Sparky would always say "I would buy it"--even though I think he prolly would, but you dont respond so the statement really has no purpose. And Sparky said "I would buy it" twice which was kindah repetitive.
Just from a script perspective is all. And then when you did the news review of products, you guys din't sync right. I mean, Andru's point on the 128kbps Itunes purchased songs being wasted on hi-fidelity speakers was never addressed by Sparky. There were other odds and ends there.
The 2nd one was where Sparky did have a valid point and Andru just repeated what he had said before. And then, the camera guy talked about wifi in strip clubs which Sparky commented on but Andru dismissed which came off as callous.
Mostly, I think it's just pre-production scripting/timing errors. The best moments of gizmatic are when you guys are at your corniest.
Having said all that, you guys have some great content. Hah, Man-purse.
The shaky DV cam is jarring. when it cuts to a close up, it's a bit too fast. Try to ease in, preferably have the DV cam the same level as your main cam. If you need a closeup tell your DV guy to put the camcorder to their chest on the same level as the Main cam and walk forward slowly to the exact area you want to zoom in on. Cut out the artsy panning unless it's necessary.
The best parts of the show are when you cut loose--light sabers and the shuffle joke was funny. Also the endorsements, which i dont mind, dont need to be sold by both of you. Andru can do one, and Sparky can do the other. That way you wont' trip over your comments/pitch.
Your competition is prolly Patrick Norton's DLTV. They've got good camerawork but the gear they have isn't as interesting as GL's.
I'm not sure if you have a teleprompter or not but their relatively easy to set up. I think there's FOSS for it too. Just my 2cents.
