2012 was a unique year in video story telling for us at the Dispatch/Argus.Our list of the 10-best videos ranges from a 17-minute documentary to a lighthearted behind scenes look at one of our photo shoots.

Every year we try to offer our audience a diverse brand of video storytelling and this year was no different. The highlight for me came in June when we published our 17-minute documentary 'Arsenal at 150'. The project took over two and half months to complete and was extremely creatively challenging.

I hope you enjoy our Top Ten Videos from the past year.
