Video Tips for Beginners

I absolutely had to run Marla Schulman‘s interview this weekend because she is right in the middle of the Oscar action, taking pictures on the Red Carpet, and of course, this weekend is The Academy Awards. Marla is a TV host who knows her way around a video camera. She has some great video tips for beginners in this video.

But oh the irony…

This video has a couple of the technical challenges that we preach against right in the video to be sure and avoid like not great sound and kinda crummy picture quality. None of those are Marla’s fault, however. Like she points out, sometimes it just happens!

    Disclaimers about production values notwithstanding, this series of videos is amazing. They are just the right length, and they are inspirational as well as informative. They are all packed with that famous Susan McLennan can-do attitude. Thank you!

      Thanks David, it’s good of you to write. And I’m glad you like the video length. I’m thinking I will shorten them a bit as I go along.

      I am good with photoshop, and have a desginers eye. Unfortunately, I am hopelessly inept when it comes to coding. I have read through basic html, xhtml, and css tutorials, but I am so visual it is hard to really grasp it without a helping hand. I have googled this topic ALOT, lol. But, all I find are more tutorials on the basics, which I already understand to an extent, and WYS’s that only offer basic webdesign capabilities. Maybe I am hoping for too much, but I really want something to show/help me create an advanced website. I know I can do it, but I need a push i the right direction. If possible, I would like something that doesn’t involve tables. I don’t get the concept, and I hear they are outdated anyway.oh yes. another monkey wrench in the works is that anything suggested has to be free. i am in college with NO money. trial versions of things are acceptable, but free is obviously prefered. thanks in advance.note. when i say visual, i don’t mean reading. if you have add or any form of learning disability you will understand what i mean. reading is ok, but i am looking for something more hands on that i can watch happening video, wys, anything but more type that just goes on and on like i said before, i understand how code works. i don’t need a lesson on how to type it so much as i need to see how all the typing comes together.ok i am getting some good answers but not quite getting my meaning through i think. i scratch the question above if you will can someone just explain tables? how do they work? why are they there? can i get rid ofthem? how? anything you can offer.
