Keram essentially gives a 45 minute lecture on how to shoot high-quality video, distribute, market, monetize and succeed at making professional, broadcast quality home movies. He also discusses viral videos, how to run your own internet based 24 hour TV station, hit Webisodic “The Guild”, aspect ratios, the best HD cameras for under a thousand bucks and much more. Can you believe it is both free and ad free? He is joined by co-host Aimee Lynn Chadwick. Too good to be true.

UPDATES: Mogulus, mentioned in this episode, has since evolved into Livestream – a site that has since offered live broadcasts of the Oscars behind-the-scenes and exclusive Presidential campaign videos! Also Revver.com seems to have since gone AWOL.
YouTube has evolved radically, from adding new commercial rental services of select content) adding full HD support and raising its content cap to 2GB. In the near future they will also add metadata for fully searchable video and audio.
At the time this episode was recorded, no one could have predicted the rise of DSLR cameras as the new film threat. In the interim, Keram has launched 7DLabs.com – a site dedicated to shooting with so-called HDSLR cameras.
Despite these subsequent changes, the episode comprises a hearty discussion about what viral videos are, what elements appear to be consistent among them, and how to exploit new content with this in mind.
