Thanks to the efforts of a few committed seniors we have gotten our video bulletin off the ground (youtube.com/drakehighschool)
Once again, I come to you seeking advice. Student interest has increased and I have a group of students ready to continue our video news bulletin next year. This will be a club - not a class- next year. While we do have a video documentary program on campus the idea of a regular video broadcast doesn't mix well with their curriculum.
My questions for you:
-what rookie mistakes can we avoid?
-what gear has worked best? We have one HD DV camera now. Add some Flip cameras to keep it simple?
-we are a Windows-based school so...... what's the best video editing platform? I have experience with Windows Movie Maker and Premiere CS3/Elements - the latter two aren't the best.
Thanks in advance for your help.
