I am going to finally be putting my work online. I think it will hopefully help bring me some more permanent work and also serve as my resume reel.
I am looking at YouTube. It may have a lot of crap, but it seems to be stable, easier to use and send links to people. My issue with Vimeo is that I personally have never really been able to view anything there. So I think my choice is YouTube.
YouTube says your upload cannot be longer than 20 minutes. That's an issue when my docs go up to about 25 minutes. Plus, I may have a couple of short narrative films I would like to upload. What I can't seem to figure out is how people can get entire movies on YouTube when there is supposed to be a 10GB upload limit (I think it's 10).
Also, is there a way of putting your work in any particular order? Can you separate certain uploads into sections?
I already have a channel, does anyone have any advice on how to "tag" my uploads so that people can find them? I have a couple of things up already, but I don't think they are very easy to find. Should I have a few small tags or a lot of tags?
Any advice would be appreciated because there are some things I would love to have in place by the end of the month at least. I would like to be able to use my YouTube channel with my Linkedin and Facebook profiles.
Plus, I can also let my IndieTalk family see some of the work I've done
I know a lot of people use Vimeo. I don't know that much about it except what the site says. Should I consider using both sites? I really am a blank slate here, for both sites. I could use all the help I can get! So I'm asking people who have channels and have their work online what they know from their experiences.
