How do we take a video of ourselves signing?

One of the best ways to handle video clips would be for a person to set 
up an account through one of the video online sites (I use YouTube). 
Once you have an account, you can post video online for people to see. 
For example, I posted my suggestion to YouTube to give you an idea of 
what it could be like. If you follow this link, you will see my 
suggestion on video: Most 
video online sites support tagging, so you can tag it as SignWriting. 
Then it would be easy to find any clips that discuss SignWriting
