Video-sharing site Vimeo has rolled the cameras on its Vimeo Video School, a freely accessible section of the site devoted to movie-making tutorials for beginners and more-advanced videographers alike.

Launched earlier this week, the Video School expands on and organizes user-generated how-to and tips-and-tricks videos.

It features a Video 101 section, made up of Vimeo-produced clips about the basics' a DSLR Basics section, also Vimeo-produced and devoted to shooting video with digital single lens reflex cameras' and a Featured Lessons section, in which Vimeo staffers offer up teachings on a variety of topics, from composition fundamentals to storyboarding basics to how to make a good holiday video.

Aspiring Eisensteins can also search different categories--Editing, Gear, and Do-It-Yourself among them--to find Vimeo-created "lessons" and user-produced "tutorials" on their chosen area of interest. And the "lessons" include "challenges," which invite users to create clips with their newfound knowledge and post them to get feedback from other Vimeo users.

"Vimeo has an amazing community of members who enjoy sharing their knowledge to help each other reach the next level, whatever that level might be," Vimeo General Manager Dae Mellencamp said in a statement. "With Vimeo Video School we have created a structured extension of what our community members have done for one another for years: teach and share best practices."
