You want to produce a talk show. Well you're going to need a lot of knowledge and a lot of help, because you'll need multiple cameras. Talk shows can be very boring if you just have a single static camera, so you'll want multiple cameras. If you don't have multiple cameras what you'll want to do is you'll want to do a lot of cuts and you'll want to move your subject around to another frame, another angle, and cut back into it, which means you'll need a good editor. You'll also need audio equipment, I like to use wireless microphones, you'll need somebody to set those microphones up for you. Most talk show host will use a microphone that they can interview their guest with. You can also use lavalier mics like that that I have on right here. It's important to get good audio, especially with the talk type of program because the whole program is based around your conversation. So if your audio is bad it doesn't matter how good your video is the show is going to be terrible. So, with those things in mind you're on your way to producing your own talk show. The last thing that I think you'll need to produce a talk show is something to talk about, make sure your conversation is interesting, whether it's you talking or you have a host, make sure your script is good. Boring talk is boring talk, no matter how good the video looks if you're boring you're boring.
