Jon Glassberg recently posted quite a nice rant regarding climbing videos and the state of that aspect of the climbing industry.
If you are going to make any money in the industry I would expect some personal progression. I want to see a desire to be better at that defining skill and a recycling of the money earned from making these movies to buy better equipment and software and to spend the time learning the techniques needed to become a better film maker. Having friends in the industry that pull hard and being connected to the community is a must but slopping together bad footage of strong climbers sending projects doesnâ??t do the climber, the problem, or the industry justice.
He has an interesting perspective on this and I encourage you to read the entire post.
