In this episode, Michael Cioni (SVP of Global Innovation, Frame.io) introduces the current use case of the Home production approach of the show “Conan”. Michael Cioni has invited the lead editor of the TBS show Rob Ashe who has been in this position for five years to introduce the new home workflow in collaboration with the show host Conan O’Brien who set up his studio at home. He goes on to describe how the team designed the approach, chose the tools and settings. He then explains how they implemented strategies to reflect or replace elements of the show concept with new ones that can be produced with simple everyday tools that their audience is familiar with.

Frame.io Workflow From Home: Episode 6 – Self-Recording
This video is a reaction to the significant shift to self-recorded videos in many areas, ranging from tv broadcasts to expert talks, to lots of other self-publication on many topics and across genres. Michael Cioni has dedicated this clip to explore the options on how to organize, optimize, and ultimately realize an ambitious but customizable self-recording setup, including camera, lighting, teleprompter, audio recording, transfer, grading and editing choices, among several other things. Since video recording nowadays can also happen with an interview partner across web conference platforms, Michael goes on to explain on how to improve these interview-based collaborative works as well.
