I’m the guy that opens up a new toy and tosses the instructions out with the plastic shell and wire thingies. I learn new software through trial and error and search “help” as a last resort.
Some of you, however, are more methodological. Comment below, if you are so inclined, on good sources to learn video shooting and editing techniques. I’ve highlighted a few on WillVideoForFood but it’s worth revisiting.
I’ll do a post soon on the best sources to help you identify good gear, shoot with good lighting, capture sound that is audible, edit like a pro and compress for quality. It’s time to raise the bar on amateur content since we have new entrants that are near film quality.
