When you think of online video, you think of YouTube and Hulu. But those aren't the only two choices when it comes to online video. There are a bunch of niche video websites that showcase professional and home made videos by genre. You may find that many of these videos are also on YouTube, but the difference is that some of these websites have their own communities and how-to guides for creating just the type of video you want.
First up, for some of the most viral comedy videos, check out Funny or Die. There you'll find stars like Will Ferrell, Heidi Montag and Jewel in a variety of spoofs and yarns. For example, Forehead Tittaes is a video that stars Oscar winner Marion Cotillard demonstrating an unusual new product designed to get women more respect in the office.
Ever heard of Brick Films? That's a site that's dedicated to "brickfilming -- making stop motion animation with LEGO or other brick like elements." Here's Road Rescue.
Then there's WebCam Stop Motion, where you turn on your computer's webcam and make your own personal stop motion animation videos, starring you.
