What's the point of Video Nation?

It's simple - to enable you to produce a short video for the web. Take a look at films other people have made. Video Nation reflects everyday life across the UK in all its rich diversity.

Who edits the tapes?

We do, but Video Nation hands over control to you. If you are unhappy about a finished video, then it just doesn't get shown. That way you are free to shoot first, decide later.

I've never used a camcorder - does that matter?

No - and you don't have to be technically minded either. A local production team will provide all the training and advice you need to film successfully.

What will happen to my recordings?

Your tape may be edited into a short video and shown on your local website, and may in turn be featured on this website, but only once you've agreed to the final version. If you change your mind about a video later on, we'll take it down as soon as possible.

We use streaming technology, which means the videos can't be downloaded or kept by users. Videos are also sometimes shown on TV, but we'll ask you beforehand and understand if you don't want it to be shown.

What's in it for me?

It's an opportunity to share your views and experiences with others, to talk directly to both local and national audiences and to add your videos to the growing online archive of everyday life.
