Why video?

If a picture tells a thousand words, then moving pictures paint tens of thousands.

We have been thinking for several years about better ways to show you local events. Advances in technology mean shooting video and posting to the web has become simple and affordable.

How much does this cost?

When we started to think about using video cost was a key issue. After looking at a couple of options, we chose a handheld video camera about the size of a mobile phone.

The camera costs £70. It comes complete with basic editing software. Editing is a simple drag and drop.

Obviously, this is not professional quality. But, then, neither is the cost. We think these short videos are good enough to let you know what your council is doing.

Why YouTube?

YouTube is the most popular video posting website. Most web users will be familiar with using YouTube. We will look at other channels if this trial is successful.
