Your audio really stinks on these.

Unfortunately, your videos are really little more than mute talking heads if we can't hear or understand what everyone is saying.

Your camera person should be monitoring what's being recorded on the tape (not the input, but the output from the recording) as he/she is filming.

I didn't even watch this video once I discovered that I couldn't really hear what is being said.

If Photo News Network wants to be taken seriously, you need to make sure your coverage is done professionally, rather than just dressing up in a coat and tie in front of your camera with a logo stuck on your (non-functioning) microphone.

At the very least, you should take the time to do some audio post production to correct your mistakes.

In short the clients of this bad-haircut-guy are dim wits who are unable to create, but are furious if they are told that. So they "create" based on other works (pretty much like the retard who did the Obama poster) and they risk that the original creator might not aprove their so-called creation. And what about them?

Myself I'd say let them wait tables or be a janitor... not everybody has to be an artist.
