Years ago, I ran across an interview with philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti. It was plain to say the least. He sat in a chair and talked while a camera watched. There was no lighting, editing, expensive set or comedian sidekick making jokes. At the time, I was a producer for MTV and spent most of my time focusing on fancy camera angles and $600/hour post-production facilities in an effort to keep my audience’s attention. But this video blew me away because although it had none of that, it worked.
