For my Media Studies (TV + Film) course, I need to present some research on Multi-Camera productions.
For those who don't know what this is, it is a production that uses more than one camera. An example of this is 'The Jeremy Kyle Show'.

I want to know if you prefer multi-camera productions to single camera productions, and why?

Thank you.

I think perhaps a survey would be appropriate for that question.

It depends on the purpose and format of the production. Some, for instance, the Jeremy Kyle show lend themselves to multi-camera set-ups. Others, such as Antiques Roadshow (for instance), or some soap-operas, are more suited for single camera.

I think, generally speaking, if the production is based in a studio and/or is live, and has a lot of interaction then multi-camera is best. Otherwise, go for single camera, where more attention can be given to the subject that camera's picking up.

Having done a Level 3 diploma that was mainly focused on Single Camera and being part way through a degree course that mainly Multicamera.

I would say that I wouldn't have a preference. I prefer Single camera when I'm editing a project such as a Drama or an informative video and I prefer Multicamera during Live Productions.
