[development] RE : Presentation recording best practices

There was an interesting development at Drupalcamp Florida. They hired a
company who recorded all of the sessions. All of them. With a camera.


They then said: we have enough money to actually post about 20 of the 50 or
so sessions. If you (or your company) wants to "sponsor" your session to be
posted, they can do so for a nominal fee and they get branding added to the
video. Videos have not been posted, and it's been over a week. So maybe not
so great on the turn around time :)

The best presentation videos I've ever seen include two video feeds, the
slides, and the presenter. Put the presenter in a tiny window off to the
side and the slides in the main screen.

Having worked in a Advertising Agency for the better part of 7 years before
being hired by Commerce Guys, I have some experience in being hired to make
video content. The expensive is not small, as it takes a lot of people,
specialized equipment, physical hard drive space, very fast computers, and
a turn around time of hours, not days. Not to mention someone who
coordinates the files and gets the sessions posted with enough meta data
that people can find them later.
