Think all you need to shoot a decent Web video is a cheap camera and YouTube?

Not anymore.

Web video is becoming ubiquitous (translation: overexposed and glutted), so that also means producers and creators are needing to get more serious about their craft to stand out.

Ah, the old-cream-rises-to-the-top lesson.

So if you’ve got a hankering to make your mark in Web video, head over to Metacafe and click on the “Studio” tab on the home page. Then go to “production school” and you’ll find loads of short video clips on shooting, lighting, directing and more.

I watched a few and while I’m no video auteur, there seem to be some good tips in there.
