Bogie Nominations - Best Video

  574M White Guru

Hello everyone,

our member 409 has asked the question about nominating video's in the Best Photographer

Can we include videos in the photography section this year? If so, I nominate rocket for his constant videos 'from the office'. Something that most railfans (especially in this day and age) rarely if ever get to experience.

My feeling is that video of railway activity and linking to Youtube is a growing trend.

There could be a lot of video of particular events. Last Steam on Broad Gauge comes to mine, along with the Spirit of Progress re-enactment.

I think we can put it to the poll, "Should there be a separate Bogie for Video's?"

I'll throw this open for discussion.

As with still photographs there would need to be some assertion of ownership of the item.

I have no strong feelings as to whether or not a separate Bogie is warranted at this stage for moving pictures compared with still ones.  The skills required to produce outstanding results are similar (though not quite identical) and we do see an increasing number of video clips posted.

Yet a significant number of clips are simply posted as "I found this ....." or "Here is an example ....." with the poster not the creator of the work.

Perhaps as the trend grows and we see both more video clips and hopefully a vast improvement on the normal YouTube-type quality posted all too often (which is a limitation of that site as host and not necessarily a reflection of the quality of the original work) then we might need to consider separate categories just to deal with the volume of material.

I think a video is warranted, but inclusion is subject to weather the videographer is credited and verified to some degree. The bogie should go to the videographer and not the poster. It should be rail related only.

The skills for video footage are different to stills - the whole smoothly panning action is one I have yet to master. I go along with alstom_888m thinking as well.

I personally, feel a separate category is warranted for Videographers. I've come across many videos which have had the time and effort put in for editing, and that being both a stills photographer and videographer myself, I feel the two are completely separate mediums in their own right.

[edit]Poll closed;
Results were 9 for, 2 against.
the AYES have it, we now have a new bogie for Best Video. I will now turn this thread into the Best Video Bogie Nominations[/edit]

Discussion about this bogie closes at this post.

Nominations for videos taken in  the period September 2007-September 2008 are now open!

I think the best way to handle this is to

~ link to the post which has the video, and
~ give the name of the fellow who took the video.  

You may have to PM the poster to get the videographer's name.

Mind if I toot my own horn here? I've jammed my name at the end of all of these so there is no need to ask.

In the normal course of circumstances, it is considered poor form to nominate yourself for a Bogie.  Bogies are principally peer-evaluation.

However, in this particular field of gunzel endeavour,  I suppose it is appropriate  to either post or link to a video you are nominating.  

Because this is the first time, we'll allow this,  and any others who wish to be considered for this Bogie may post or link to their videos in this thread.   Mr. Green

I have changed this thread into a thread to nominate Video clips for the Video Bogie Category.

LINK to the original post with the video, and make a normal nomination. (i.e., give the thread name, the poster, the post content and LINK to it.)

DO NOT post the video itself in this bogies thread.

I have no tolerance in waiting for web pages to load that have ten or fifteen Google-Youtube-Whatever video objects on the page.

Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof; meaning, enough with the Railpage server... without turning the area into soup with needless video links. Be you warned now, any more videos on this page will see corrective action by me.

I'll kick off the 2009 nominations with this excellent piece of work by 409
  409 Minister for Railways

I would just like to have my video nomination for 2009 to be removed since the video has been removed from my profile on youtube. WMG has had the video removed due to copyright on the background music. Since the video is no longer active, can it please be removed from the nominations?

I nominate:
Sydney_Gunzel for his fantastic video's. e.g

In the Everyday QR Network Observations, Colhad makes many contributions using video. While not nominating any one specific video, his continuing contributions via way of video and everyday ops is a worthy effort.

Nominated for this Bogie, then.
