As we are heading towards the closing of this amazing media training, I want to share some of the resources we have been using in a structured way. Below are four collections of links.
The first one is a collection of videos that model the current practices of web video. It includes some classics from the business world, some of my own work and a wide range of examples (excellent, good, mediocre, not so good) that can be analyzed before producing a new video.
Zach King’s video on editing…
Freesound.org gives you great sound effects
A book we wrote in the golden age of the media boom
Storytelling used by the business world – great examples of good manipulation
The second one is a collection of texts, articles, booklets, videos that are interesting food for thought. If you don’t want to re-invent the wheel, you can read into the current landscape of practices. The collection goes from TED talks to videos that reveal how YouTube offers you which videos to watch next.
The third collection is a very random attempt at gathering tutorials that I found useful. Your own list may be more valuable here: you can find wonderful video and film tutorials online. This lists reveals some of these, such as this gem on editing.
And finally, three websites for copyright free music. Best practice is always to make your own music, even if it’s simple. If you don’t have the time or people to do it, you can always combine sounds from this website to build something fun!
