My biggest problem with video is the same problem I have with photos:

Looks great, sounds great, works great -- if it's done right. Too many
people at high levels think that minimal is okay, and I have serious
professional difficulties about having my name associated with shoddy work.

When I'm told to take photos out in the factory with a point-and-shoot
digital camera, and no additional lighting equipment, without proper editing
software, it's another gosh-darn educational opportunity.

I explain how this will be perfectly adequate for the storyboard, and I ask
if they've already located a qualified professional to prepare the finished
product. It's a losing battle, but I continue to fight the good fight.
