    I could bring Current's production values up to HD standards with a Mac, a Big Mac, and a thousand dollar gift card for crutchfield.com or egghead.com.

    And I know exactly shit about video.  But I know enough about hiring the right geeks to get it done, pro-quality. At times, it seems as if they hired their entire technical team off of a bad Craig's List ad.

    •  I seriously doubt it's this simple or cheap (0+ / 0-)

      Broadcast-quality cameras and production and editing equipment aren't cheap, especially since you need multiple cameras and mikes, and people who know how to use them don't come cheap either. We'd also like to hire only union workers, which presumably (and for valid reasons) makes it more expensive.

      We're not talking about cable access standards here.
