Video is fueling the growth of the internet; however, it is a lot more labour intensive to produce than writing text. A minute or two of web-grade video footage can take an hour or more of shooting to produce. TV quality productions can take even longer.
My own baptism of fire in to online video production came a few weeks ago. As a company we have a “video guy”; however, he was on holiday during our filming opportunity, so I was dispatched in his place. I hadn’t picked up a camera in years, and even then my experience came mostly from filming holiday videos on a low-tech 1990’s video 8 camcorder.
