Hi all:

I remember a long time ago when I went to college,
they had a collection of video tapes that teached how to shoot
with a video camera, to learn to make your own videos.
Do you know any video tutorials that do this ?
Can you give me the name so I can acquire them ?
Please help me !!!

Youtube is the way.

It's possible that's the answer to nearly every "how to" question. ;D

you know, it's incredible how Google+Youtube saves the day.

it can solve basically everything.

sometimes i forget that i can simply Google things, maybe it's because i was born in the late 70's.

it is...I am all for free knowledge, to empower us all without the need of paying for it "If possible that is" I dream of one day all or as much as possible of all knowledge should be free for everyone..regardless your financial situation, that is power to the people.

I recall a friend of mine that at the age of 49 went to a course at the swedish royal technhical highschool, the course was IT- security, and she had some issues getting a task done based on the provided written study material, she called me up and wondered if I knew anything about the task of pgp encryption etc, the result wasnīt as expected when she followed the guide, I then did a fast youtube googling, and returned back to her a few results that I though may cover it..she looked at it and responded back that it worked out and that really helped, weird though that our renome Swedish royal technical highschool couldnīt provide better material..one may think.

people at these NT boards are not "Average" they just think they are.

many have a very high technical understanding.

in general, people also lose interest, leaving technical stuff behind, focusing on life instead... idiots.

The gold standard in learning to block your camera moves.

Bought that when it first came out...long time ago.

It literally can't be beat in terms of camera blocking....but the series is massive overkill for a beginner.
The first volume alone is probably more than most film school grads would learn in their degree.

I would recommend anybody watch at least the first and second volume, after that it gets into some pretty advanced blocking that I have barely scratched the surface of or needed in practice....and I've been shooting for about 15 years, and owned 4 sonys 3 pannys and 2 reds in that time.
The other volumes will prepare you to have CSI high end drama quality blocking.

The first volume alone opens your eyes to the real emotional impact of camera position framing and focal length that everyone should know.
