I enjoy watching Hak5 and HakTip, as much as the next geek. However, I am also lucky enough to be able to call the Hak crew my close friends. Seeing them make their shows, rather than just watching the end product, is both fun and inspiring. I wanted to share some of that world with you guys.
Look at the top of this page. You see the characters up there in the banner? One of them is Paul Tobias. He shoots and edits the shows. You will see him lurking around occasionally, but you dont get to see how produces Hak5 and HakTip, almost singlehandedly.
I figured that I would point my camera him for a few minutes and try to capture how he does his work.
Pay particular attention to how much he is able to shoot and accomplish, with only a crew of one, and for very little money. Notice the VESA monitor arms used for camera mounts, the iPad teleprompter, and little screens under cameras so that Darren and Shannon can try and take care of their own shot framing.
Enjoy paying attention to the man behind the curtain.
