Things have been slow here lately,  so I am making a challenge to all FtF members to upload one of their multimedia pieces for review. Then make a commitment to comment on someone else's work if you do. Time to get out of the funk and start taking part in the site.  I know there are lots of people that need some feedback!

Colin is right! 

You want to get better at video storytelling?? This is the site for that!! Nothing else like this exists for newspaper photographers getting into the world of video (and if it does, it costs $$)  
You can't find a site or service like this in the NPPA or your state/regional press photographers association.

If you're a lurker on here get off the sidelines, get involved. Go on the forum if you have questions or want to share something with everyone. Submit a video or audio slideshow and don't worry a reviewer is going to tear you a new one, it's all about learning, growing and getting better.

If you signed on to be a reviewer step up to your promise to Colin to review. 
I know our work days can be long and we all have lives outside of our newspapers but it doesn't take long to review at least one a week. If it helps don't write a "War and Peace" review of a video, just be honest about what you watched and help some folks out.

Remember when we were young and starting out? Getting others in the photo department or at school to look at our negatives, contact prints, etc so we could learn? That's exactly what this site is just on a national scale.

We all learned (and continue to) from others getting into this great profession, one way to pay it back is helping others, this is a great place for that!

Okay stepping off my soapbox now :-)

I've been on vacation for a while. But I'm going to be back in the MIX. 

Viva la FtF
