- Lynda.com This is the grand-daddy of sites for online learning. It is subscription based, but there may be workarounds. For example, anyone with a Boston Public Library card gets free access, and anyone living in Massachusetts can get a BPL card...therefore, I can get in free! You might check with your local library or see if there is something similar where you are.
- Basic Filmmaker A great channel by a quirky kind of guy. I have learned a lot from here.
- Basic Filmmaker University The Basic Filmmaker has started up a separate, subscription-based, page of video tutorials. I've looked at the free ones, and they are very well done, but I have a hard time dropping the cash for stuff that I probably can find elsewhere, especially in lynda.com.
- Vimeo Mastering Mobile Video A really great site on how to shoot good video just using your smartphone.
- DSLRGuide This is another great channel by a guy in England who has been chronicling what he has been learning and doing through the years as he progresses.
- Dave Dugdale YouTube Channel Website This is the first channel that I started on and I bought his eight-part tutorial on how to use my camera. Best $35 I spent.
- Film Riot Admittedly, this channel is beyond where I am right now, but it is pretty entertaining and you can learn a lot from it.
- Knoptop This channel hasn't been updated in quite a while. He focuses on a lot of DIY stuff for video production, and is fun to watch (and learn).

Teaching yourself video
It is incredible how much information there is online when it comes to video. I've learned a ton, and this video is going to cover some of my "go to" channels for information.
