Home video on the web -- children

camcorder home video

The Charlie-bit-me home video from YouTube has over 110,000,000 views. It is 56 seconds long and appears to be handheld with a regular consumer camcorder and patience. The size of the audience for this clip convinces me that documentary and independent filmmakers should put their work online, particularly older films and videos that are hard to track down. A fraction of 110,000,000 is pretty big.
