    Default Innovation, sharing ideas, and having fun

    VideoForums recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary. Much has changed in the last 10 years and our shared hobby has seen an explosion in popularity. The forums have been continually updated to cater for these changes, but we're fast approaching a time where we're no longer relevant. It's never been so easy to capture and share video, which is starting to marginalise those of us that are genuine enthusiasts. Anyone can pick up an iPhone, film and upload to YouTube. Strangely, advances in technology and the acceptance of YouTube in everyday life have made it all the more important to maintain our small community.


    As you know, I have been considering the future direction of VideoForums for some time. This has included discussions with several long-standing members and we have jointly agreed that change is required to ensure we remain relevant. We've decided to go back to our founding principles of embracing innovation, sharing ideas, and having fun. To help push us towards this direction, we have decided to make the forum structure much more simple. We plan to have a small number of sections, and each section will be linked to one of our guiding principles. You should see some changes soon, but I will share more details shortly.

    Congrats on 10 years Marc.
    I agree that things have changed, some are for better and some for worse. It's certainly far, far cheaper to buyt a cam and edit software than it's ever been.
    My first edit system cost 5.5K and I've recently just bought Vegas Movie Studio 11 HD platinum suite for £21, so at today's prices even the paper boy can get into this wonderful world now.
    The basic principles of good filming and editing will always be relevant though and serious/would be video producers will always seek out forums like this.
    Streamlining a few departments would make navigating easier and introducing youtube/sharing tips would bring the iPhone/go pro guys and may lead them into more serious video productions.
    My opinions are just that . . . Mine. It's not personal, but is based on my emotional and professional reaction to requested critique. If you choose to ignore constructive comments, I'll just assume you're a vanity poster and not posting to improve your filming and editing skills.

    It's still the editor (and actor, camera man, sound designer, ...) who makes a good video not the gear.

    I visited this morning and saw that the site was nicely pruned, not to put too fine of a point on it. I think the [watershed?] leaves the board with relevant forums that do recapture what this board is all about.
    Good work, Marc.

    Much better.

    Let's get back to making video, having fun and trying out things. There are plenty of forums out there for the bling and the ego-massagers.
