Top Sources For Video Production Tips and News

I follow the video production and online video news spaces very closely. It’s a personal passion of mine, it directly relates to Spidvid and UnleashVideo, and with the growth we’ve seen over the last few years it’s been extremely interesting to follow! Below are some of my favorite blogs, and podcast shows.

1. IndyMogul – Such an amazing show for filmmakers and video creators, filled full of DIY content, and entertaining too!

2. FilmRiot – see above!

3. Partners Project – Anything that show host Shira does I’m a fan of! In this show she interviews some of YouTube’s top partners to extract their knowledge and tips for video creators.

4. New Mediacracy – This is an audio only podcast where a gang of filmmakers get together, drink, and talk shop. Definately NSFW and informative!

5. NoFilmSchool – A blog about the filmmaking world, very interesting insights and resources shared here.

6. Raindance – This site offers training (I attended a weekend workshop of theirs last year in fact), and also has a very good blog too.

7. ReelSEO – I love this site for news, viral videos, and the weekly video production tips.

8. – a good mix of coverage about online video, and tips for creating videos too.

9. Indie Intertube – The girls that run this site are incredible, and their podcast conversations are fun to listen to as well.

10. web series TODAY – This site features lots of amazing web series content to watch on a daily basis, and web series related news from across the web.

These are just a few of my top favorites, do you have any to add?
