Wildlife and Travel Videos
These videos are mostly on animal or travel-related subjects and have been selected from YouTube for professional quality, good camera work, useful information, lack of heavy-handed marketing and, if possible, sense of humour. They are related/linked to bugbog subject areas and add in-depth knowledge, advice and occasionally scary visuals.

Hints on taking good quality video
• Don't move the camera so much! Check the professional way, they mostly film something moving from a non-moving position, then cut and move the camera to a new static position. But if you have to move or zoom the camera, do it very slow and steadily.
• Don't fast forward the recording! Edit the rubbish out instead of giving viewers speed-nausea!
• 'Still' videos (i.e. composed of videos of prints), fergedaboutit! unless especially informative.
• Concentrate on steady shooting of really interesting moving subjects and edit the tape brutally afterwards. Slash and burn!
