How to do a Hangout On Air with Two people in the same frame
There will be times for some people and organisations where your HOA guest is in the same building. What people tend to do is set up another laptop in another room, so that each person can have their lower third and be the main focus when they talk. The background to this was we wanted to gain some experience of doing HOAs but also have something we could use afterwards. The issue was being in the same building we would have to have separate laptops, microphones etc to get the HOA affect of a lower third and separate camera shots (depending on who was talking).
We decided to design a special lower 3rd for both of us and use one screen. This is the outcome. We kept it low key but I am pleased with how it turned out. This has given us ideas of doing this double act HOA again either as hosts or guests!
