We use Vimeo with a ton of options, which is free for a while but has started throttling uploads once in awhile. It’s like being able to edit a video for free. We just switch things up sometimes and the cost per point drops. Also, we put up a ton of tutorials and videos on everything from how to get a better deal or even how to use a camera to how to get a better quality camera. We have a ton of stuff. I don’t want to say anything bad about Vimeo because I think it’s great and I just hope my videos have higher quality and I don’t have a bad experience there. But I used to run into more problems there than on other sites, but more people are using it (and I think its due partially to the more open system Vimeo provides to get videos out there). You know, it used to be this one little company with a lot of YouTube clips and Vimeo videos but in 2011 Vimeo got acquired by Sony and got a lot of the videos off of YouTube. So now you want to see all of these great videos! I’m glad Vimeo has allowed us such freedom.
Do you think it would be good for the indie scene to have this type of freedom, as long as everyone gets paid?
I think so. With everything being free, I think that we can make our passion for how good our videos are come alive with more support and hopefully get more people to get involved in the industry. This is my passion that really brings me to work now. I started making fun of other people’s videos by having people ask how good they were, but once I started making a business out of it, I realized that you aren’t going to get great videos out of people who don’t pay. If you have nothing to sell, you’d probably do worse than just make an hour and a half of fun fun videos because you’d rather be entertaining yourself. So I think our focus should still be on being funny about the business aspect of making videos, but I think I want to also create great content that people want to watch.
Are there any other services that do what we do?
We just ran a series of videos that we wanted to get people that didn’t have access to Vimeo to watch and learn how to edit and edit a video from scratch. We also made a series called Video Essentials. So those are other ways we do video editing. I try to be in the market for
