Surprising Insights About Web Video

A hand holding an old school video camera

My interview with Dave Kaminski of web video university

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing someone I’ve held in high regard for years: Dave Kaminski of Web Video University. Since I was in the middle of writing my Design 101 series, I posted the interview video on a private page and only shared it with my newsletter readers.

[EDIT: This video is no longer available]

Here’s what’s covered:

  • The essential information you must master before you begin using web video
  • Cameras at every price point, from low-end to professional (For more about low-end cameras, see this video, which is a side-by-side “shootout” comparison of the Flip Ultra HD, Kodak Zi8, Creative Vado 3rd Generation and Canon Powershot SD 780.)
  • How to get search engines to index your video content
  • What does HD really mean? (The answer might surprise you)
  • How to brand your videos (Dave’s suggestion was not what I expected)

  1. Thanks for that, Pamela. Did you ever find out from Dave what the secret is to setting up the lights to look 10 years younger on camera? I sure would like to know!

    • Hi Annabel! He never did tell me (I decided to ask more important questions than that). Maybe I should just film in the dark next time: that would take care of it. 😉

      Seriously, though, this interview was a lot of fun to do. I will do more web video in the future, wrinkles and all!

  2. What? That is the most important question! 😀
    You looked great. I’m working up my courage to get started with video too. I think the most important thing is to just start doing it, regardless of whether the lighting is perfect or not.

    p.s. I’m a fellow member of RMB, love your Design 101 PDF!

    • I’m glad you liked the report! I am offering it up in the sidebar now for anyone who’s interested. All current blog subscribers should have received an email with a link to it, too.

  3. Hi Pamela — Just wanted to say how much I liked this tutorial. I’m as jaded as they come when it comes to this kind of stuff, but found myself watching the whole thing and feel like I learned a lot. Good luck w/ your new system!

    • Well hello, Alan!

      It’s all about Dave Kaminski, really: I gave him three little questions and he ran with it and shared a lot of great info. Thanks for the comment!

  4. Hi Pamela,

    You look terrific on camera. I don’t think you need that filter at all, but just FYI, I think you may be thinking about the Tiffen Pro-Mist. Here’s a link with example photos:

    Dave gave some great advice but one more suggestion … record good sound. Did you notice how much better Dave’s sound was compared to yours? He was waring a lavalier mic while I’m guessing you used the one built into the camera. I think good sound is more important than good video.

    Great stuff. I thought I knew web video but Dave gave me some ideas. My next video’s going to have my dog Farley in it for sure.



    • Hi Rob,

      I agree: the camera I used was one of the ones Dave recommended, but it doesn’t have an external mic. A video camera with an external mic in on my wish list! Glad the video was helpful.
