The Barnes & Noble Review
Don’t like what’s on TV? Do something about it: Be your own Internet TV station. Start videoblogging. All the technology’s available, and this book will guide you through everything from pre-production to promotion.

What are you going to videoblog about? Chapter 1 gives you plenty of great ideas, as well as pointers to innovative videoblogs that offer even more food for thought. Longtime videobloggers Jay Dedman and Joshua Paul (who’ve worked for folks like CNN and Sony) answer the questions new videobloggers ask most often. Should you record your life? Should your videoblog feel like a TV show? What’ll it cost? Who’ll watch? How many viewers can I really get?

Then, it’s on to the nuts-and-bolts. You’ll walk through choosing equipment, even on a tight budget; then hosting your videoblog for free. Part II offers a complete primer on videoblog production, starting with tips on acquiring video (shooting video while you’re walking or driving; creating slo-mo videos, and more). You’ll learn how to acquire video on the Web, convert old analog video to digital, even create videoblog entries from stills. Next, Dedman and Paul take you through post-production -- editing, subtitling, transcoding, compressing, even adding interactivity with Quicktime or Flash.

Dedman and Paul walk you through setting up automated RSS feeds, embedding video into web pages, then customizing your videoblog and reaching your audience. There’s even a chapter on earning cash from your videoblog. While you won’t get rich this way, there are more revenue options than you might realize. Bill Camarda, from the August 2006 Read Only
