A good article as far as it goes. But the business of video, as opposed to the hobby of video is about business, not about the gear or the storytelling, etc. Most video businesses are run by people who love to shoot and edit but who know very little about making business decisions: about how to generate startup funds -- capitalization; about how to write contracts; about what's required by the IRS and local taxing agencies when making sales, hiring crew, etc. Being a good videographer is one thing, being a good business man or woman who's business is video is quite another. While it's important, as this article points out, to learn the fundamentals of video production, taking some night-school or SBA classes in business management is a good idea as well.
