Ken Burns has been a successful documentary filmmaker for decades telling stories from America’s past. Recently his new documentary series on the Roosevelts began airing on PBS

This reminded me of a documentary produced by Redglass Pictures in 2012. His insights are valid still today.

Notice how the simplicity of stills (with the Ken Burn’s effect) with voiceover and music keep you moving through a “talking head” direct to camera interview. And how the great lighting, audio, composition and a simple background keep you focused on Ken and draw you into a personal connection with him. That’s what you as an expert and thought leader must do in your own videos.

Enjoy!
