I've not posted on the site for an age but there is something I've been wondering about and want to raise (hope I don't come across as a grumpy old geezer).

Why are the Muvizu staff picks and videos on the main Muvizu intro page never updated nowadays?

The reason I ask is because I've had a very enjoyable hour going though the gallery tonight and I'm amazed at the quality of some of the videos and saddened by how few views they get. In the past the videos that are really good would get a staff pick and are much more likely to get more views. This seems to be a good reward for the videos and something for the filmmakers to strive for (and acts as as a great advertisment for Muvizu I would have thought).

One example of how important positioning on the site can be is my own video for one more piece. I'm very grateful that it is on the Muvizu intro page and because of it's location it has got a large number of views. However, I am fully aware that a large majority of the views are simply because it is is the first video on the main page and it has been there for some time so anybody checking out Muvizu for the first time are more likely to click on it.

There are loads of good videos in the gallery but two recent ones I would have picked out as a good advertisement of what you can do with Muvizu (and I appreciate that this is entirely subjective) are "The man who lived twice" by Fazz and "The eyes of the ranger" by Grindhouse.
Fazz is probably the person at present who has most stretched what you can do with Muvizu and produces amazing reults.
Grindhouse's video looks brilliant but is also a master class in what camera movement can add to a video.


So come on Muvizu HQ. Please start doing staff picks as a regular thing again and update the videos shown on the main intro page. Seems like everybody wins if you do.

Just the fact that Muvizu is taking up to 10 days to approve a video is disconcerting. Digimania should put someone in charge of just the Muvizu site to at least look like they still care.

Beginning of the end?

It seems that ever since Muvizu Play came out and they started charging for Muvizu Play+ things have been going down hill. I think you may be right Bigwally, it's looking like the beginning of the end.

Hi guys thanks for the reminder. I have been moderating the content submitted to the gallery but I completely forgot about the staff picks. Really sorry about this and I will make sure I do this from now on. I totally agree that there has been some worth picks from the last couple of weeks. Normally the content is moderated on a Sunday or Monday but I have been moving house so the last 2 weeks it has been neglected, everything is back to normal now. Thanks again and I am open to anything else you would like to see from myself or the team . . . we can always say no!
