It always amazed me as a viewer when I was watching a reporter’s package, saw him or her pop up on screen, then saw them pop up again, and again, and again!
It was as if they cloned themselves, just for the purpose of creating that story!
(Uh oh, better not give news directors any ideas)
When I was a young TV student, I thought, ‘man, something like that must take tons of time, lots of effort, and high-end technology.’ But it’s actually not as hard as you think. It just takes a little creativity and some planning.
Once again, we turn to Joe Little of 10News in San Diego. I was sent this video Joe made for a 2013 NPPA workshop, which shows what you need to do to make a five-man standup as a one-man-band. Enjoy!
Got another example of a multi-person standup? Put the link in the comments!
