Calling all video makers! We want to see your videos from Maker Faire, coming up this weekend. Share with us your clips, interviews, compositions, whatever you find interesting at the Faire. Upload it to Blip.tv or your own server and submit the video to us! If we use a clip of yours, we’ll give you a free Maker’s Notebook. If we publish a longer form edited composition, we’ll give you a $50 gift certificate to the Maker Shed! MAKE and CRAFT videos are released through our iTunes podcast and on video sharing sites like YouTube, where we have over 100K subscribers.

We even have a papercraft microphone flag you can download and print out!

If you were on the fence about bringing your video camera to Maker Faire, here’s your reason! We can’t wait to see what your experience was like. We’ve got video compression tips on the video submission page, and an archive of video making on Make: Online, full of DIY video ideas.
