Dude. Why are you here, wasting the time of people who know what we're doing, if you think you already know everything there is to know?

I've been working in documentary and doc-style corporate work my entire professional video career. You are here for advice from people who know what they're talking about. I know what I'm talking about. Bouke knows what he's talking about. If you just want to argue about it, go do it whatever way you think is best and prove that it doesn't suck. But don't come back to us complaining that the broadcaster QA department rejected it.

So here's my advice. Shoot 16x9. Basically every screen on the planet uses this ratio, so unless you're doing a theatrical release, 16x9 is the standard.

Then use the methods I outlined. Don't argue with me that they don't work. They DO. They're totally normal, standard technique that any documentary filmmaker uses.
