Video of the Year 2008

Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

2008 was another year of huge growth in online video of all kinds. User-generated, institutional, events coverage, films, pubcasts and supplements, and anti-TV as well as some broadcast television (remember it?). It gets harder to keep up with and sort through the volume but with this narrow a niche, Channel N is doing fine. Here’s what I really liked in 2008.

Funny – The Experimental Philosophy blog ad is fresh and funny and well-made.

PSA – Suicide PSA. Most professionally-produced mental health PSAs I saw this year were utter rubbish, but user-generated PSAs (mostly student assignments) really shone. This one is good at inducing guilt.

Short – Trapped: Mental Illness Inside America’s Prisons. Visually exquisite with a strong message about severely mentally ill folks who are in prisons instead of now-closed hospitals.

Long – My fave DIY lecture video this year was from the 1st INCF Congress of Neuroinformatics. The presentation quality isn’t great, but the quality of the content is fantastic. Integrating Neuroscience Knowledge: Brain Research in the Digital Age is a dazzling tour of what’s new in the field(s).

Innovation – JoVE. The whole Journal of Visualized Experiments, now included in PubMed.

Overall – Jill Bolte Taylor: My Stroke of Insight. This neuroanatomist’s description of her stroke and recovery went viral, leading to Oprah, a bestselling memoir deal, and millions of inspired viewers. I’m proud to say Channel N was one of the first to promote it.
