Thoughts on Creating Better Web Videos

Andrew Warner with Mixergy released an interesting interview with Andrew Lock on How to create a Web TV show even if you’re not a pro.

Now, I am not personally planning on creating a web TV show.  However, I am starting to create a series of tutorials and instructional videos for Atlanta Ruby Developer and a couple of other properties we operate.  I loved some of the ideas in this interview about how to capture high quality footage using a halogen light from Lowe’s or Home Depot.

In my experiments, the camera on my Android phone is completely high quality enough for web video purposes.  Snapz Pro is wonderful for capturing events on the screen.  Now, I just need to find a local teenager to tutor me how to use iMovie on Mac OS X.  I’m a coder, not a video producer after all :-)
