Quote from: beanheadmcginty on November 20, 2021, 02:03:58 PMThis drives me up the fucking wall. The presenter is talking directly into the camera and then suddenly for no reason it cuts to a secondary camera filming the same presenter from the side who continues talking into the primary camera. I first noticed this on MTV in the late 90s and thankfully mainstream telly doesn't do it very much anymore. However, YouTubers seem to have grabbed hold of it and are really running with the whole idea. I can't help but partially blame Ashton Kutcher. Can someone please explain what the point of this is, why I find it so infuriating and how we can bring it to an end?

Quote from: Mister Six on November 23, 2021, 01:36:00 PMI find the idea that the interviewee is expected to sit around while the interviewer runs through a series of nods, head-tilts and concerned frowns much more surprising than the idea that it might be done on a different day.
