International Money Making with Video

International Money Making with Video | Travel Video Store/sites/downloads

In this article I wish to discuss the options I am exploring with regard to increasing my revenue from video related activities as I travel the world. My original plan of relying on an increase in youtube adsense income, due to increased video turnout, has not come to fruition. So to keep the travel show on the road, I have to explore other options.

Thoughts please?

You might create a footage pool which businesses at target destinations can select from and use for a fixed monthly fee on their web sites, e.g. any clips of their facilities or destination activities Offer editing services to pull together pool footage and any footage they own. Use Amazon WS for cloud storage to facilitate content delivery.

Thanks Jim, nice idea. Do you use Amazon WS? Internet is not too fast in certain locations (I'm in Borneo at the moment) Could probably only load up short HD snippets

Not using it currently but it makes sense from several perspectives. You have unlimited storage at a reasonable monthly rate, it's safe (barring an EMP event), and it's distributed so there should be better, faster content delivery compared to the typical scenario of a web server sharing bandwidth with a large number of other web servers at a hosted location. They also offer cloud database services so you can effectively run and manage the site from the cloud. Use your hosted site as a gateway to the data.

Im going to look into this, sounds great. At the moment Im just buying more and more hard drives to store footage. This could be a solution to archiving projects, just upload the fcpX project and event

Getty just made another money grab by changing the compensation formula for editorial images. I think that eventually the middleman is going to be replaced in favor of rights managed pools where creators will pay for hosting their own content and broker it through a centralized (possibly specialized) content engine such as I described.
