The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) has an free online guide to help you shoot video better. And unlike my attempts to check out episodes of Dr. Who (which is restricted to UK viewers), this is open to all web visitors.
This will open a second browser window so you might have to temporarily allow pop-ups. It is interactive with the ability to download .pdfs on topics like choosing the right camera for the job and what you need to take on a recording session.
The equipment mentioned is for professional journalists so keep that in mind and adapt to your immediate needs and budget constraints. There is enough here to keep you busy and help you figure out what you need to consider in telling video stories.
