Video is gaining on written word

Posted on: 02/08/2009

A film instructor spoke of the ‘democratisation’ of making movies with the advent of affordable, portable, usable technology. That was two years ago. Even he couldn’t have predicted the gains video communications has made in the past few years.

In the past week alone I have received an email from someone (1 of over 4,500) who had posted a comment after watching my silly sheep video on YouTube ; recorded a one minute video tip in my new series on Key; and  talked to my cousin on a Skype video call.

There is no doubt – with the fusion of technology, fingertip mobile recording and uploading video and our insatiable appetite for seeing things – video is here to stay.

Just search ‘tips on using video’ and you’ll find no end of advice from the likes of YouTube,, and VideoJug, and that’s only page one of the results.

Take One!
