I admit it. I like this guy.
Philip DeFranco’s style of humor may not be yours– I think he’s pretty funny– but we can both admire his production style in this hot webcam rant.
If you’re doing a webcam rant, take some lessons from Phil:
1) Write it— at least an outline– so you can make your points clearly. DeFranco’s a news analyst, so he’s not only written his jokes, he had to do research to put his video together. It shows.
2) Decide on a look. He’s got a smarmy home set in bold colors, against which he is visible. He lights himself well, too, so we can see him.
3) Edit: He cuts in interesting photos and news stories. He cuts out anything boring. Including breaths, fumbles, and performances he doesn’t like. The result is a very hot, cutty style that works.
4) Frame it: DeFranco’s produced intro and outro (very short!) let you know what you’re watching right away.
