Who is DVuser aimed at?
DVuser.co.uk is the UK’s premier free online interactive DV magazine. DVuser is aimed at those who are serious about DV
production who have read the beginner magazines found on the shelves
of WHSmith and who now want to take it to the next level with a view
to making a living from the profession, perhaps by setting yourself
up as an independent production company to shoot Corporate Videos,
Special Interest Videos (SIVs), Weddings, Training or Infomercial
DVDs or perhaps to shoot an independent feature or low-budget short
film to screen at film festivals or maybe even distribute.
DVuser will also benefit those who are already
established and making a living in the business as well as those who
are just starting out. If you are a keen camcorder hobbyists who is

filmmaker who is shooting the final scenes of a feature film, or just
about anyone else in-between, including independent video production
companies, independent filmmakers, lighting cameramen, editors,
compositors, post-production special FX experts, directors, actors,
actresses or any other crew members, you should bookmark DVuser.
About the founder

video producer Nigel Cooper, who felt that the
UK was lacking a good UK based “Digital Media Internet Community/
Online Interactive DV Magazine” with resources in abundance to
educate, inform and to help keep the British independent video
production and filmmaking industry moving forward. For more details
