    Steve,

    It's looking better everyday. I dig the little music clips at the end. Also, nice to see some sponsorship on the shirt today.

    My suggestion is warmer lighting (how? I don't know, I'm a sound guy) and warmer sound. You can get rid of the hollow, echo, tunnel-like sound with rugs on the floor, wall hangings, and furniture in the room. We don't have to see it, it just needs to be there to flatten the sound out.

    Thanks for all you do.

    Cheers,

    Alan

    Thanks for the comments and glad you like it.

    New desk is in a box, should get that set up today, so maybe Friday or Mondays' podcast will have that. I also have a new camera and can get a little better quality along with audio at the same time. Right now I grab them separately and they don't always match up.

    I'm also planning on moving around the corner, into a larger space, but with more (hopefully) sound deadening. I've got a rug to unroll and maybe I'll stick something else on the walls to clean up the sound. I have a light on order I want to try (I have 2 floods now) and we'll see if that helps.

    Definitely let me know if it's better. It's such a grind that I have to work just to keep up, makes it hard to improve things. However I'm definitely getting faster, so more time to make it more interesting 🙂

    Hey Steve,

    Just wanted to give you the thumbs up on the sound and lighting for the podcast. It sounds great, looks great (I like the occasional change of scenary)!

    Have great weekend,

    Alan

    Two words: Green Screen. 😛

    That way you can add whatever background you feel matches your mood that day (mine would always be goofy...and animated...who cares that it'd make the file size quadruple?!?). 🙂

    I got some fabric to do the green screen, but it proved to be a little problematic without a good solid background behind.

    Drywall is here, not need to screw it up and mud it down!

    The very few times I've had to do it, I just always tracked down a projector screen to hang it on, and used a plastic tablecloth from the dollar store (doesn't need to be green, just a unique solid color). Only problem is lighting creating shadows that vary the color...better to use non-reflective materials (yes...like cloth, as you mentioned). 🙂

    The projector screen is an interesting idea. I was thinking to build a frame to hold it, but various other things have gotten in the way.

    Right now I have a backdrop on order, so we'll see how that goes.
