  • Video Forensics - How to Tell What Went Wrong Before it Got to You! by Philip Hodgetts
    Now, we know it's not your fault, but sometimes you get footage that comes in from

    learn a lot from what goes wrong, in order to make it better next time.

    vertising revenue from corporate sponsorship?
