We create corporate news videos in house at my company Mortgages for Business. I use Camtasia to do post production and we sort of hash it together and it all works rather well, most of the time, ish. I want to improve what we do with the videos, the lighting especially is shocking, and the sound from the road outside occasionally is audible (the thunder of lorrys going by, that sort of low frequency, very hard to filter out noise).

What would you fine, professional and creative folk recommend to improve the output? I was thinking:
- A blue screen for the background to remove the distracting context. A sound deadening curtain might help remove the background noise.
- Lighting! Get a couple of spot lights, Davids face is too dark.
- Software. I used Camtasia because that's what we had. It works (surprisingly well), but it is more a tool for catching footage from your screen.
Thanks in advance,
