What Is The Minimum Gear Necessary To Start Out In Video Production?
At the end of the day, it all comes down to KNOWING your gear
I am often asked what is the minimum gear necessary to start out in video as a serious hobby. Obviously a video camera is required and as to which one, that could be an essay all by itself, but in as much of a nutshell as I can make it, for the long term it is best if you get one that has a bundle of manual controls as well as being fully automatic (for when you start out).
Do You Know How Long An Average Scene Lasts?
If you want to make your own movies more interesting, think about timing and camera angles
How long do you reckon the average scene in a TV show lasts for? A minute? 30 seconds? There is nothing more boring than watching a fixed camera shooting a scene for a long period of time. And I define a long period of time as more than 15 seconds!

Manhattan Center: State-of-the Art Video Editing in NYC
Video editing is as much art as science
It is no secret that reality shows can be made and broken in post-production. Think of Bravo TV, which has made a fortune from good editing. Editing has become as important a part of the mix as picking the right cast members or creating the right environment. There is so much juicy footage to air that a "hats off" must be given to the editing team at Bravo and all the other successful reality shows: The actors are voluntarily put through the wringer for an entire day, and most of it ends up on the cutting room floor.
