I like cheap resources because they can get more people involved in making videos, but I like free resources even more. Still, the creator has to make a living. The web enables small buying decisions made by lots of people to add up to a living for an author.
No Film School is an excellent blog run by Ryan Koo about how to make a living in TV/Film with little money and a lot of hard work.
Recently they published this post on how to make videos for the Third sector.

I’ll be talking mostly about our workshops, which you can check out here:
I run a one-day Practical Multimedia Production workshop which enables the user to shoot and edit their own short video, then post it on YouTube and market it on social media, such as Facebook or Twitter.
I’m going to post useful tips on this blog and to start I am going to recommend a cloud-based, collaborative video editor called WeVideo.
If you like the look of a completely free (in the basic mode) video editor for PC or Mac (or Linux). Have a look. Then sign up for my course.
Oh and if you are wondering about the cultural reference in the title:

As regular readers can see, we have updated our website. We think it’s a big improvement and hopefully you will agree.
In addition to our magazine, e-zines and mobile app, the website will contain all our latest news and anything else that we believe is worth commenting on.
We will also have regular blogs, including posts about our new training workshops and what they offer to the voluntary and community sector.
As the cuts start to affect the third sector in Northern Ireland, we want our blog to be a sounding board for your views.
Let us know if your organisation or services have been hit by funding shortages. Don’t suffer in silence.
The next edition of our magazine will be out in early March.

The Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for Social Development today (February 28) launched its report on the Welfare Reform Bill.
The Bill, which is acknowledged as the most radical reform of the welfare system in a generation, is set to be debated in the Assembly in early April 2013.
For many the word ‘reform’ means wholesale cuts in benefits. Supporters of the Welfare Reform Bill, including DSD minister Nelson McCausland, argue that these are ‘fair’ measures and the system meeds to be overhauled.
One thing is certain though that the Bill, when passed by the Assembly, will cause untold misery and hardship.
People who are already struggling financially will have even less to spend.
Many charities and voluntary organisations have already expressed alarm at the proposed measures.
Indeed the bedroom tax, which is a part of the Bill, will hit nearly two thirds of Northern Ireland’s housing benefit claimants in the social sector, according to new research by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH).
The institute said that 62 percent of working age tenants will be affected by the under-occupation penalty, compared with 33 percent across Great Britain.
It seems that those who are opposed to the Bill will have to step up their campaign.
