[Video Review] 34 Common Video Mistakes and How to Fix Them

13 Video Styles: And When To Use Them

If you visit here regularly, then you know I typically produce 3 main styles of videos:  video screen capture, direct-to-camera and a picture-in-picture type overlay.  So it was with no small surprise when I saw Mike and Andy below outline about 10 additional video styles in their Video Genesis training program--a total of 13 video styles.  (There're  free PDF and Mindjet Mindmap files they've provided, as well.)

(On an iOS device?  Click here.)

And, while I don't necessarily see myself using all the video styles in the projects I typically publish, the fact is: you might have occasion to use some of them.  In which case, the way their guide outlines it all may be helpful to you since they've taken time to also list some best practice situations on when to use each style.

34 Mistakes Web Video Creators Make: And How To Fix Them

Also provided in the portal above is a pretty meaty training video about 34 common mistakes web video creators make--and how to fix each one.  Again, the training video is free (email signup may be required but you can unsubscribe from it later if you want).

I like the presentation style they've used in these videos; they combine elements of: "edutainment", story-telling, show/tell by example to communicate the learning points.  The training videos are pretty engaging and entertaining -- and, what the hell, the price point is right.
