Look at the video they have created in just 2 days...



For 2 days I was tied up in the studio with 7 interested learners.
They were a mix of working adults and one polytechnic student.

This is one of the best lessons I have conducted.
The participants were so full of energy and ideas.

The video above was mostly their creative input working as a team.
I was only just the actor and content writer while they did the rest.

Day one was about using the camcorder and Day 2 the technique of video editing.
More than technical skills, there was also the art of creating compelling videos.

Video making skill is a requirement in most work places today,
Like knowing how to use the computer, one must know how to make a video.

I am now scheduling the next 2-day Basic Videography Course next month.
You can see the announcement at http://videolane.com/courses/basic-videography.

At Last! The Forgotten YouTube Video Downloader.

"Adrian, which software can I use for YouTube video download?" "...and how can I convert the YouTube video to other video formats?" I was asked these questions yesterday by my neighbour. My neighbour, a friendly family man,  is a financial planning trainer. He uses lots of high-tech tools and media to communicate his message. So he came across a YouTube video that might enhance his presentation. He wants the video downloaded so that he can play back from his laptop. I, the internet video expert, gave him the ultimate unexpected answer. "There is no need to download any software to download YouTube videos." "There is also no need for any software to convert the YouTube videos." "All you need is ZamZar.com, an online video conversion service that is free!"
