Visual Commentaries

I'm wondering if we will start to see some DVDs that include a visual commentary?

I guess it would have to be based on the "Angle" feature. We would hear the movie's normal audio, but we could look at the director and/or writers sitting on a couch. They could give use visual cues such as thumbs up, knee slaps, tears, etc.

Could provide a whole new type of insight...

This already exists on several DVDs. Ghostbusters for instance.

One fun variation is the "Madden" commentary as seen on the Swingers and Made DVD, where the commentators can draw on the screen.

also, some of the Kevin Smith commentaries included footage of the commentary cast in a little window on top of the movie. Why it isn't shown throughout the movie, I'm not sure.

Space constraints, I imagine.

Men in Black has the magic pen as well, right?

In UHF there's a spot where Al gets up to go to the bathroom or something.
