Hi Peter, Doug and Tom, (and everyone else who takes the time to read this),

Peter's suggested subjects sound good, so consider them added to the list.

Doug's suggested 5 minute length sounds about right, except for those subjects that really do need more than that to do them justice.

Tom's idea of linked pdf's or powerpoint may be a good idea but I think that there simply aren't going to be volunteers with both the video making and other skills needed to do this.

I think we could leave the subject list open for one more week and then put another call out for volunteers to get the process underway.

Charles Papert has explained the different terms for framing/composition in this thread:

Might be helpful for the person doing the composition tutorial.

BINGO! This is a plan I have for a long time to make on my Dutch Website about the XH-A1.

As I was browsing around on the DV(i) forum I discovered this topic and I am offering my help.

Hartelijke groeten,

Gert

Hey Everyone,

Just noticed this thread. Sounds like a great idea!

I'd love to contribute in any way I can. However, like everyone else, I have an extremely busy schedule.

Just from combing through the posts I saw there was a need for a summarized .PDF created for each tutorial. I could easily do that in an organized fashion, screenshots and bulleted lists. It takes no time at all.

Also, the topic is about 'camera technique training clips'. I just recently created an 'Indie' training technique that might prove useful to this series ( even more so if expanded from 2 minutes to 5 minutes). Here it is:

Hi Gert and John,

Thank you both for volunteering.

Gert, once the basics are in place I shall call for volunteers to select the subject they want to do, so just keep an eye on this thread until then.

John, it would be great if you could do a standardised pdf showing the basics of what we want for each of the subjects so far listed in this thread. That way the clips would all follow the same approach and would ensure that there was basic guidance for our volunteers. It might be easier if we work this out off thread so as not to clog it up with humdrum detail, so please email me.

Looking forward to working with you.

Colin

Believe it best to work it out online right here -- after all that's what the board is for! Thanks in advance,

Hey, Would love to help with the project if it gets off the ground and do what I can to help it do that. I can help with additional hosting but also encoding and setting up of a flash player with play lists and such. I also have setup my server to allow uploading of files via a simple PHP scripts of up to 100MB. If Mr. Hurd wants to discuss the mods that allow this fun stuff I would be happy to.

Hi Chris,

Thats fine. I just thought a whole string of posts about what to include in the pdf might detract from what we are trying to do, when it comes to other members reading the thread about the actual training clips.

By the way, what's the situation with being able to upload clips to this site?

Colin

For right now just contact me by email (chris at dvinfo dot net) for the FTP upload account info. We're about to expand the site significantly to allow clip hosting; the Flash encoder package I'm looking at is not cheap (for me that is; it'll be a free service to share video here) but it will be HD and it'll be the same tech used by another popular sharing site (not Youtube but much better).

I've been contacted by some other video sharing services about partnering on this and I still need to get those emails out, but this hosting project will be in-house and hosted on DV Info Net's servers and carrying our brand (it has to be as I want to keep everything under one roof and accessible to all our members). It's the next big step for DV Info Net which I've been wanting to implement for quite awhile and it's time to make it happen.

Meanwhile I think the discussions about how to shape these tutorials should remain as open and public as possible. That way it's more of a community effort.
