    Greg, the Interrotron also has a push-button virtual wig selector...I heard Morris and McNamara had a lot of fun with that feature.

    It's not too different from doing an interview over Skype, iChat, etc. then?

    Did Errol interview you? For some reason I thought he invented and owned the only interrotron ever made.

    I wish! Morris did not interview me...I guess the Interrotron idea is out and about in the world.

    The interrotron (a.k.a. prompter-cam) is used more often than you might imagine in advertising and corporate videos, especially with customer testimonials. It's basically a video conference between interviewee and interviewer using two cameras, each with a teleprompter. The interviewer sees the interviewee in his camera, the interviewee sees the interviewer in his camera. This provides for a more intimate connection between interviewer and interviewee.

    I loved The Fog of War! I felt like the Interrotron was an integral part of that film. It just wouldn't have been the same without it.
