[Shane Ross] "Well, depends on if what they are saying is interesting enough..."

Shane - I think you've hit the nail on the head with that statement. If every interview subject was completely engaging then we wouldn't need to cut (except for dramatic effect, as you mentioned).

Shooting an interview with two cameras is a safety net - the cut to angle 2 hides the jump in time, or more often, hides the fact that the interview is relatively uninteresting, so an editor has to add pace or emotion artificially. Sometimes it works ok, other times it makes me cringe.
