DVinfoNet websites & Community forum updates...

Howdy from Texas,

Got the Watchdog updated with some new user tips and a couple of shoulder brace items, and added Community links to Son of Watchdog & The VX2000 Companion.

Here on the forums, I took Chris Ward and Stephen van Vuren's suggestion and created a new section for those who are using DV for broadcast or theatrical distribution. It's called "DV for the Masses." Hope it's popular! (I know I'm interested.)

business & marketing

Hi I just joined this list today, it looks great and seems to have a lot of knowledgable people.
On one of the other lists I frequent they have a business and marketing forum, which I really enjoy and to me is more valuable then the type of equipment each of us use, not that I don't enjoy discussing equipment, but I've found that without sales you don't get to buy the toys.
I was just wondering if there is any chance of one getting started on this board, or if there is any interest at all from others here.

I'd be interested in that for sure. I've always shot for other people where I show up with a master and they give me money(however in the snowboard industry it's more often gear).

I'm getting ready to strike out on my own full time in the next few years and info like that would be really helpful. I've got the tech skills I need but my industry business experience is zip.

I am definitely interested in this and have thought about it since the beginning, but I didn't want to load us up with too many forums to start off with. The way it works right now is, if there are enough posts about a certain topic, we'll add a forum for it and move 'em all in there.

Right now I'm about to add a Film Look forum and a Web Video forum because there's already enough threads to put into them. If there's enough interest in a Business & Marketing area, then we'll sure do that too. Thanks,

that's great

it's great to see the response, it's only a couple so far but if there are 3 or 4 responses I'm sure that there are 10-20 lurkers who would be interested.

An excellent idea.

No matter what your level of expertise, we can always learn something new and maybe help others in return.

Okay you asked for it: new forums are up

"Web Video Delivery," called for more than awhile back, added to the "Post Production -- And Beyond!" category and hosted by my good friend and partner in crime, Adam Brooks.

"Read About it!" toward the bottom of the forum list, get away from the computer screen for awhile and pick up a good book, non-fiction of course, about our technical craft. Ken Tanaka resides.

"Towards a Film Look Using DV" in our "DV Production" category (the topics may fall under the category of post-production as well, but we'll lump 'em in here), does not purport that we actually *can* make DV look like film, but we can sure try.

"General DV Discussion" has been moved to the "DV Production" category and re-named "Open DV Discussion" to avoid confusion with "General Topics" in the "XL1 Watchdog" category. You got all that?

Hope this helps,

I see that camera supports have it's own forum now, can you can audio and mics as it's own forum (taken away from the XL1/s forum)

If there's enough interest in it. There was so much about XL1 audio, so that's why it has its own forum. I haven't seen much traffic about other camera audio, but if there is enough, then we can certainly devote a forum to it.
