This was put together very well. As a former news photog, this site hit on just about everything that went through my head while shooting a story. The video examples are definitely the strongest point. My only recommendation would be to have the quiz keep track of the scores.

Fabulous site clearly explaining visually the basics for videoing. A hands on interactive site that makes a novice videographer feel smart!

Technical Remarks:

the videos sometimes knocked me off line and I had to keep signing back on to view them
Time spent reviewing site: two hours and I'll be back often to review the basics

This is a very impressive tutorial covering all aspects of the process, important "rules," what to watch out for etc. It's easy to use and very well organized.
