Mobile%20Pic %20SEAsia%201Not having come into Mobile Advance from a media background I've had to do a lot of learning on-the-fly.  In the process I've gathered a database of about 2300 resources that cover most everything there is to know on the subject of video production. 

As a forewarning, most of these resources come from secular websites and there is some moderately objectionable content in some of the resources (for instance, FilmRiot has an excellent video on how to produce video using an iPhone but the content they make and showcase with the iPhone is a somewhat disturbing horror film). 

One other pointer, while these resources may help you in making right decisions and avoiding mistakes the most helpful thing you can do is to get out and start making and editing video- that is your fastest track to growing and improving. 

Here are links to the resources broken down into various subject areas (the databases are Google Docs which can be downloaded):
