Contributions to DSP's Video Library

Now that our Vimeo and YouTube channels are up and running alongside our Flickr album, the DSP will be very grateful for contributions of video and/or still photographs relating to any aspect of disabled target shooting.  If you are able to let us have suitable material, or know someone else who can, please read on - and spread the word.  


Why do we want them?

Our aim is to build up a library of material to service two purposes. Firstly, to encourage more people to take up target shooting, when they see images of people like themselves enjoying the sport. Secondly, to provide a reference library for shooters, coaches, instructors and clubs who are looking for solutions to problems on equipment or technique.

This is an important part of the DSP’s work, and we do hope you will help by submitting any video or photos that we might be able to use. Please don’t worry if you feel it is not very good quality! A small video production company, Nonesuchemedia, is working with us on this project, and will deal with editing to produce the best results possible. Mark Jarman of Nonesuchemedia is available to answer any questions you may have about taking and submitting videos - You can email him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


What would we like?

Basically, whatever there is! Video showing general shooting club life, special events, one-to-one coaching sessions, individual shooters with disabilities, less-able shooters using modified equipment, range officers working with deaf or learning disabled shooters – everything will be useful in one way or another.

Mark says:
"We really don’t mind if your film work may not be to Hollywood standards; we can edit the work to tell the story.

You can send us video captured by your iPhone or Android, your Canon or Sony.

We can receive your work in any digital format, whether its .mov, mp4 or .wmv. We'll be able to convert what we receive to what we need.”


Helpful hints

When you are deciding what to send us, Mark’s advice is:
1. You can say a tremendous amount in 30 seconds of film!
2. The shorter the video files, the faster your upload speed will be when submitting them to us.
3. We would love to see what you and/or your club have done to accommodate disabled shooting.
4. Please include commentary where possible.
5. Interviews from those who have benefitted, with smiley faces, are great!
6. A mixture of close-ups and general scenes is helpful.
7. Don’t be shy - everything we receive will be of assistance to DSP, and therefore to those shooters or shooters-to-be engaging in this pro-active sport.


IMPORTANT
● Please remember to ensure that people shown are willing to have their images on the internet.
● Please send with the video/photos a note of what is happening, what the occasion is, etc.
● If people shown are happy to have their names added (full name, or just first name), please supply the name(s)! If they wish to remain anonymous, that’s fine.
● Make sure you let us have your full contact details; your name, telephone number and email, your club details, and website address if the club has one.


How to contribute

Our preferred mode of video transport is via Dropbox, which is an extremely useful facility. You can download from www.dropbox.com all you need to get your Spielberg footage to us, and it’s free (as long as your video files are less than 2GB). When you log on to the Dropbox site there is a .pdf which will give you clear instructions on how to use this mode of transport. When uploading on Dropbox, the goods should be addressed to Mark at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If for any reason you cannot use Dropbox, please don’t worry – just contact Mark to make alternative arrangements for getting your material to him.


In return, can we help you?

In addition to preparing videos for our internet channels, Nonesuchemedia will also be putting together clips that can be used in various ways, such as presentations in support of applications for funding or planning permission, promotional events, etc. If your or your organisation need such material to advance the cause of disabled target shooting, then please contact DSP Co-ordinator Liz Woodall, and we will do what we can to help.


OK, we’re standing by, ready to receive and develop, so get your creative juices flowing!
