When Matt and Patrice York first conceived of their idea of making a magazine about video, teaching early adopters about the gear, techniques and all aspects of video production, they were in a class by themselves. The two of them plus one other staff member set forth to democratize video production so everyone who wanted to share their dream would be able to achieve that goal. Through 20 years, hundreds of staffers, two children, bi-coastal locations and four office moves, the Yorks still dream, are still eager to share, and are valued in the video making community for their inspiration. We at Videomaker Magazine salute you, and wish you well for the next 20 years.
