When Is Real Too Real?
Do you remember the old TV commercial for Memorex, in which the question was asked: "Is it live or is it Memorex?" I realize that we, as viewers, are consumed with reality TV—we want real-life stories, real-life heroes, real courage—real, real, real! From unscripted talk shows ranging from Donahue...

Future Vision
I know the whole concept of commercial production is supposed to change dramatically very soon, but I don't really care. I don't mean to sound ignorant and unprepared (although I probably am).
