Just want to share a few things that work for me before, during and after a depressed economy. Much of this I've shared before in one form or another but regardless of the redundancy it's well-worth repeating. Whether you're an established video production professional, amateur, hobbyist, or just now considering video as an income or extra money generator, something here might just help get you up and running.

We're always interested in stories of up-and-coming indie movie projects. One such project that caught our eye was Sledgehammer, an Aliens-inspired science fiction film about a group of space marines marooned on a distant planet full of hostile monsters. The design of the monster was what really did it for me.
How cool would it be to turn things around in your video related business where you are so busy you develop a need to QUALIFY your clients before YOU accept THEM, rather than THEY accept YOU?
I have a friend in an entirely different line of work (contractor, home builder) who, even several years into this housing and ongoing economic slump has a waiting list of people who HAVE to have HIM for their project ... be it a swimming pool installation, kitchen, bath or room addition/remodeling, new home, mountain or lakeside cabin, whatever.
If you are interested in an online resource for film production networking and coordination then you should check out the Open Filmmaker Alliance www.openfma.com. Several films have already been produced using it. It's totally free, so be sure and sign up to get access to all the features.
I am selling a a Sony Anycast AWS-G500, comes with 2 Sony BKAW-570 SD Video Modules and one Sony BKAW-550 RGM Modules.
Selling for only $6,000 (willing to see what other offers I get). It was slightly used for a peg channel, still in greatconditionbut we desperately need the money.
My name is Ben and I have been tasked by my boss to create a short informational video about our company. I have a background in video production, but it was a long time ago (about 10 years). The editing software hasn't changed much from when I was elbow deep in the media world, but cameras have changed a lot. I used to use DV tapes, but now there are a lot of digital and flash drive based cameras.

On my blog site, there's alot of articles and websites that I have recommended to help us all in regards with pre-production, production and post production. I'm new and i'm trying to create a community within my blogsite so that we all can learn from each other and compare opinions. My only dream is that someone will push us towards a newer era in film/video creativity. Let's start now.
Anyone with me?
Please help with your advice?! Thanks...I have several hundred files (sports related stuff) in either mpeg or wmv format that I need to put onto DVDs for distribution to friends and clients that they can watch on regular DVD players...but should I burn the mpegs and wmvs to DVD or convert them to a different and better format for DVD burn?? (I use the free software "Any Video Converter" to convert)....Please advise? Thank you....
Full, or part time, what is your number one money making gig? What percentage of your total video production income is derived from this category? Others? Mine are:
* funerals & memorials = 45 percent
* school events = 25 percent
* dance recitals = 12 percent
* community events = 6 percent
* web video for business = 6 percent
* weddings = 5 percent
* other = 1 percent
