      Earl Chessher is a veteran newspaper publisher and journalist, as well as a veteran independent professional video services provider. He reads a LOT, writes a LOT, interacts often with others in the above areas of interest, and is an unmarried workaholic whose lifestyle makes having a relationship virtually impossible.

      Chessher is also a blogger at E.C. Come, E.C. Go using the title of a longtime column he used to write and publish in various news publications – only now the blog is currently focused on video, making money with video, and marketing video.

      While other websites, most of them video-related, are forthcoming, his major website is at CorElAnn Video soon to be followed by two major associated sites, one focused on a national/international video business & marketing concept for event video producers, the other focused on helping Alzheimer’s sufferers, their family and friends preserve and share the many forgotten memories.

      Kicking off the Alzheimer’s project will be the book: “Alzheimer’s: Stories Mom Forgot” soon to be self-published and distributed as a sample of what is possible in this world of hurt, in preserving memories and stories that would otherwise be lost forever.

      Hi Kids –

      I’m Bruce Paul – I started taking photos at age 6 (1960) and movies (super 8 & 16mm) at age 12 (1966). I started taking video in the mid 1980’s – back when a giant, shoulder mount camera and separate (heavy) portable VCR with 10 pound batteries were the norm. Many years ago, I studied photography in a private tutelage under Ludolf Burkhardt. I have had my stills appear on the front pages of newspapers and my video work shown at corporate annual meetings and various websites.

      A computer developer for over 32 years, several years ago I transformed a serious video hobby into a part time video business doing mostly corporate and commercial projects as well as teaching video production in private lessons and on cruise ships.

      Travis is a Mechanical Engineer by training. I bought a video camera (Sony VX2000) before a mission trip in 2003. I now have a Sony HVR-Z7U and have done about 3 dozen non-profit videos, 1 corporate training video and (with the help of a friend) have written our first short. Hard to find teenagers who can “act” and 2 of the central characters are older teenagers (age 17-19). I do not feel qualified to write about video, but I am thankful for Chessher and others (Composite1) that do. Your insights and tips are very helpful for those of us just getting started.

      Curtis Goldsborough is the production director for Sunrise Cable Network – a group of currently 4 separate local cable access channels. He is entirely self-taught, but wishes he had gone to school for this. I produce local programming including sporting events, community government, community events, etc. Sunrise Cable Network has partnered with local high schools to offer broadcasting classes to high school students, whose video projects are showcased on our local cable channels. Samples of my work as well as student work can be viewed on our website – I now spend the majority of my time in the classroom and with students at events they are producing.

      I’ve been an independent writer-producer-director for over 10 years. Prior to starting my own Co. I got into the biz as a Naval Combat Cameraman.

      My name is Caio Porciuncula, I am 15 years old, and I am an amateur Photographer and Videographer. Do not look down upon me just because of my age or for the fact that i am not a professional, because in my few years being passionated for photography and video, I haveaccomplishedmuch more than you would expectfrom anormal 15 years old. Although I loveVideo andPhotography , that will not be my career. I am still to decide my future, but one thing is more than certain, <s>I will conquer the world and dominate everybody, including you all</s>this passion for this art will not cease. I own a Canon HR10 (again, don’t judge me) and a Canon XS Rebel. And even though my “rig” might not be the-super-awesome-and-utterly-expensive-piece-of-technology, people who have seen both of my Photography and Video Portfolio are often left open-mouthed in awe by my skills.

      I am Caio, and I am a Videomaker.

      Wow Derek!

      A week in Vegas and now you’re ‘in color’ with glasses to boot!


      I don’t know about the other members, but I’m not foolish enough to ‘look down on you’ because you’re just a ‘whippersnapper’! No, no my young friend. I’ve got my eye out for kids just like you who unknowingly have the ‘horrific’ advantage of being young and able to get your hands on this kind of gear and training so soon. It’ll be guys like you who will take this stuff to a whole other level and I’m just trying to stay ahead of the curve!

      Hi, I am Anindya Mukherjee, 31, a theoretical physicist by trade and a photographer and videographer by hobby. Although it’s a hobby, I am very passionate about (and perhaps a little obsessed with) photo/videography.

      I find Videomaker to be a good place for learning, with plenty of useful advice from knowledgeable people. Thanks for the nice site and keep up the good work; I find it very inspiring!

      My name is Ken Carlson. I started on VHS-C in the mid 80’s making stop motion movies with my TMNT toys. Starting in high school I produced, wrote, directed, filmed, edited and acted in a public access television show called “Dammit This is Stupid.” After 8 years of that, I called it quits and took a couple of years off from video. Then I started to get itchy, and very dissatisfied with my day job. So I saved up, bought a used Canon XL-1 and started filming things for cheap. Four years later my business is doing decent, I’ve purchased two new cameras since then, a DVX-100b, and an HMC-150. I love them both, they’re amazing cameras. I also just finished a short film called “The Van Job,” which is pretty baller, to say the least.

      I figure I’m honing my skills every time I shoot or edit, so I crib from one of my favorite movies when I say “Let me never be complete.”

    • #185162

      … shoot! the whole “I will conquer the world and dominate everybody, including you all” was supposed to be striked through…go figure 😀

      And thank you composite one. That’s pretty meaningful coming from a pro like you 😀

    • #185163


      You’re welcome and thanks. BTW, there won’t be much left of the world after I’m done with it but you’re welcome to it.

    • #185164

      shippocaio, if you’re 15 or 115 we all can enjoy and learn from eachother. That is the great thing about photography or videography. We all have different eyes and ways of looking at things which makes even the same subject completely different when we get done with it

      My name is Ed Foskey.

      I have been interested in doing video work in some form since I was a young teen. It first started, of course, with the desire to be a famous tv/movie star. By the time I was in high school, I was introduced to video cameras. I was also working doing audio work at my church and school and even some for a band.

      When I went to college (mid-late 80’s), I was a communications major and studied some basic film-making on equipment that was about a decade outdated. In my film-making class, my partner and I, along with a few actors created a video entitled, “Library Vice.” We got an A for the ONLY video production I was ever involved in.

      After graduation, I did not find a job in TV/video. Over time, I let my dream of being a videographer go by the wayside as jobs were rare and the equipment I learned on was outdated and no money access to get equipment to go forward.

      Now, about 20 years after college, I found VideoMaker in my daughter’s school magazine sale and the spark has come alive again. I am finding my way back to my dream. Videomaker has been showing me ways to turn this passion into a way of helping feed my family and pay my mortgage.

      I will be probably asking quite a few “newbie” sounding questions: Thanks in advance for your help.


    • #185167


      Don’t feel bad at all. Many of VM’s readers and members don’t get to pursue their dreams of getting their hands in this stuff until later in life. You’re in good company and in the right place to ask, ‘newbie questions’. Just remember, ‘there are no stupid questions but asking the same question over and over after you’ve been given an answer is annoying!’ Seriously, I’ve been reading VMM since about ’99 and have been hanging around here for just over a year. Some of the smartest and innovative pro’s and amateurs I’ve ever encountered can be found in these forums. So find yourself a ‘seat’ and make yourself comfortable. Welcome aboard.

    • #185168


      Thanks for the reply. Let me update you on the standard of “stupid questions” as my mentor in appraising taught me:

      1. (as you stated) The question asked so many times that you should already know the answer

      2. The question you should have asked but did not ask.

      It is after midnight local time and I need to rise in 5 and a half hours.

      Good night!

      Hey everyone. My name is Alex, and although I don’t own any video equipment, or have any specialty in film making, I would like to start making some films. I came to this forum to see if I could find any local people in San Diego who make amateur movies. If anyone could point me in the right direction, I’d greatly appreciate it!

      Thanks and be safe!

      Name’s XTR on the forumand a potential freelance career videographer. I’m shooting HDV, but the HD capability is rendered useless right now, as the screen cable is broken and the touch functions for setting “HDV mode” to output are on the LCD screen!

      Hey everyone. My name is Alex, and although I don’t own any video equipment, or have any specialty in film making, I would like to start making some films

      VM’s definitely the place to start. If you’re looking for acquiring a good set of shooting equipment or simple beginner’s camcorder, we are here to point you in the right direction. Just check videomaker’s home page.

      btw, I’ve heard of a guy getting the camcorder screen repaired for twenty bucks – parts, labor, everything. Does anyone know of such service? If so, I’d like to know. soonso I can either get the part and install it myself or find easy repair.

      Hey folks, I am Daniel from Berlin. Since a bit time I’ve been
      focused on a few topics around that forum. I can’t show any high
      experiences but a motivated user who wants to learn more.

      Sometimes I can borrow equipment from friends or family and I am very
      fascinated about to work with just simple stuff on the computer. I
      would like to know more about special tools to improve or diversify

      Ok, greatings and thx a lot

      My name is Andy. I fell into all this a few years ago after my dad passed away. I wanted to do something to honor him so I made a simple slideshow of family pics and vids and set it to music that really helped me deal with the loss. I know it sounds depressing, but I really tried to make it a positive experience. Well, as positive as possible lol. I very quickly realized that I was really enjoying making them and wanted to do more, just with a different subject matter of course. So I called my older brother that is a hot air balloon pilot and asked if I could tag along and possibly make 1 or 2 videos. He said sure and 2 years, 12 festivals and almost 40 videos later I am again stretching out into new areas. I want to keep doing my balloon videos but in a way never done before. I want to shoot them pretty much like an action movie, complete with dramatic music like Hans Zimmer. I started out using Windows Movie Maker and I now have and/or use Sony Vegas Movie Studio, Pinnacle 14 and Adobe Suite CS4, which my roommate and I bought together. Since he is a photographer and I am a video guy. I am building my own website and hope to get hired by balloon festivals around the world to come shoot everywhere. My main camera is a Canon Rebel EOS T1i that alot of the balloon pilots pitched in and bought for me to make them look better in my videos lol.

      Hi to all and greetings.

      My names Lance and here is a lttle bit about myself. Crafters of Light Productions is a dream of mine that I have been chasing for a while now.

      After working for a camera manufacturer for over 20 years I felt I had enough general knowledge about them that I could start a hobby with video. My first videos were of those 15 second captures the early picture cameras were able to create. In wanting to get some longer sequencesI started looking around for a simple consumer grade camera and found the Panasonic HDC-SD9P (it has since been discontinued). Being used to card based storage with the still cameras, I knew I wanted to stay with that format. I had played withthe SD9Pat the local Best Buy type stores and found Amazon selling them for under $500 so I bought one. It does the AVCHD on SDHC cards and was a bear to edit because my PC at the timelacked the processor power. Editing software was having issues with it as well back at that time too. But I struggled through and made several videos I placed on YouTube so family couldsee them.The camerais small, you could almost hide it in a soda can. Even with the image stabilizing, hand held shots were not the best. I learned early on aTripod was my friend.

      After almost 2 years of working with the SD9P, I started wanting something with more manual controls and was interested in several of the prosumer cameras out there. I hadbeen savingfor several moths when I attended a video equipment show sponsored by a local professional video shop and got to talking with several of the folk there that worked with the more professional equipment. I was able to get a lot of questions answered about Panasonic’s HMC-40 with everyone saying its performance could not be beat for that price.One of the gentlemen spent over an hour showing me the features. He talked about his use of them in his ‘camera for hire’ business, about it becoming a first choice for a run and gun and no he was not working the Panasonic both.

      After talking to the sales guys at the show booth Igot them downin price, to what I had savedup,for one and took it home that day. 5 months later I still go out in the backyardtolearn newthings with it. The nice thing is I can share batteries and cards with my other camera. The bigger size makes for a more stable hand help shot. I learned it requires a stouter tripod as well.

      So, my focus is on nature and local geology. I am lucky to live in an area that is so diverse in both with so much within a 2 hour drive from home. I look back at those earlierYouTube videos and I see so many things that I didn’t do right that I am embarrassed to share them with people now. I have also noticed that when I’m out there with the HMC-40, people are a lot more courteous with me and are cautious when it comes to walking in from of the camera. It is quite different when I have the SD9P (yes I still use both). No one seems to even know I’m there taking videos the way they walk in front of that camera.<span id=”_marker”></span>

      Wow! Been a while since I’ve checked in! Glad to see that more and more folks are finding and making use of VM.

      OK…I’m Bob Belongie, co-owner of Belongie Entertainment Enterprises (BEE) along with my wife Brenda. We’ve been on the learning curve for a couple of years now, mostly doing informational and promotional video for local agencies and non-profits. I’m using the experience I’ve gained in Radio as a reporter and news director over the past three decades, (as well as side trips into the world of home theater and professional sound/video installations), to provide me with the tools tooffer something different to my clients. I’m currently in the middle of post-production of a two hour dance show we did with a total of six cameras. I also do informational/training video as a volunteer for the U-S Coast Guard Auxiliary. If that weren’t enough, I’m also producer of a morning radio talk show, which is why I’m still here editing at 10PM. Needed a break and well here I am. 🙂

      We still do most of our work in SD on Mini-DV tape, editing in Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas and FCP, depending on what’s fastest for the job at hand. When the need arises and the money is there we’ll make the investment in a full HD setup, but for now most of my clients are happy with DVD so might as well wait for the prices to drop even more!

      Hello all. My name is Marco Aguilar. I am an Independent Filmmaker and Videographer. I just recently wrapped up production on a short horror film titled Zombie Parkour. It was guerilla filmmaking at it’s finest. We shot all around the city without any permits climbing up walls and scaffolding. Had tons of zombie extras running around the streets. Good times. I’m looking to start my own Videography Business and joined Videomaker to learn from the pros. Business is not my strong suite so I’m looking to learn the ins and outs. Things like how much I should price, how to best market myself etc etc. I look forward to getting to know all of you. Thank you.

      Hi name is Michael. Electrical engineer by day, have been involved in music, and audio recording my whole life. Incorporating video now, into my recording studio now, great site for tips and tricks. I have a Panasonic Lumix GH-1, Considering buying a second one now.

    • #185178

      Hello. Im new to this site so like other forums this is usually the first place to start. Im Daniel, currently going to CSUS. I am young (recently turned 20), creative (large music background), quick to learn and absorb whatever I can get. Most of all, I just want to have fun with video editing and production. :]

      I have a vision of using video editing for my business degree (marketing and/or financial advising) and career. (with a minor in computer graphics). So a fun road ahead of me.

      Christmas Im finally upgrading to a basic level of equipment which will hopefully put my talent into 1st gear. I’ve always worked with other people’s footage and I’ve been waiting for my own chance to hold a camera and use my imagination. I currently have a Macbook Pro and find a little difficulty with final cut express, but Im sure its because of lack of practice right? (Even though imovie is a piece of cake).

      I want some good harsh criticism if I can get it here and a few friends because I need to learn fast. I see this as a money makingopportunity which can be fun for me at the same time. So far I have fellow college friends who have good vocals and I can promote (or just have fun) making a music video for them. I know of a very successful interior designer whom I can showcase all of her business (close to the family). I can help my dad (once he gets a real estate license or once I get one, whoever wins first ha) show case houses for sale on the Internet. Lastly my own mother has a list of contacts of local wedding planners and photographers I can work with for a potential wedding gig.

      Im not trying to make a profession out of this (its a dream to be one, but a far stretch and a small window to shoot for in my opinion)

      If you older experienced members can help me with some ideas where to start on this long journey, I’d greatly appreciate it :] maybe some background info as to where you started, colleges or events that shaped you, and progression of your first video to your more current up to date ones?

      (email: use subject title “video editing” so I know its from this site)

      Thanks for reading I know this was long 😛

    • #185179

      My name is Eugene Rohland. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa.

      In January this year I bought a small Sony camcorder while on holiday in Cape Town. Since then I have been on this steep learning curve attempting to learn the art of videography. My only contact with likeminded people is here, on this Videomaker web site. Videomaker ismy primary source of information.

      I have no desire to do videography professionally. What I want to record is all the family and community happenings, such as weddings, birthdays, annual holidays etc… you get the picture. However, I want to do them WELL. Why must a home video look like a home video?

      My first “serious” project was my nephew’s wedding. The second was an airshow and the third was an awesome off road trip in the Northern Cape along the Namibian border. I truly enjoy the camera work but find the editing somewhat tedious. The problem is that I do not know how to edit3 hours of footage down to a 30 minute final video. What do you cut and what stays in? I guess in time all this will become easier.

      Thanksto those altruistic members who have taken the time to assist me with some of my queries.

    • #185180

      My name is Robert, a retired inventor/physicist who has
      taken up video as a hobby. I like the way it combines technology with art.
      Mostly I shoot unscripted local activities of the so called gun & run
      variety, parades, festivals, protests, sporting events, pretty much anything
      that’s free, open to the public, moves and makes noise. I look for equipment
      that I can easily carry with me on a bike or public transportation since I gave
      up driving a few years ago. Here is a list of my current stuff with a few
      comments following.


      Canon Vixia HF11

      Panasonic SDR-S10

      Pentax Optio 33WR

      Optical Accessories:

      UV Filter (always on to keep out dirt, anything else goes on
      top of this)

      ND8 Filter

      Canon WIDE-CONVERTER WD-37II 0.7X Lens


      Audio Accessories:


      ZOOM H2 Handy Recorder

      RadioShack 33-3013 TIE-CLIP MICROPHONE

      Klipsch IMAGE S4 In-Ear Enhanced Bass Noise-Isolating


      Table-Top Tripod

      SLIK SPRINT VIDEO Travel Tripod

      Manfrotto 585 modosteady


      Lenovo ThinkPad T400 w Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz processor

      160 GB 7000 rpm Hard Drive

      4 GB RAM

      Windows XP Professional

      Editing Software:

      CyberLink PowerDirector 8 Ultra

      I like the Canon HF11 because with a ratio of relative
      sensor area per pixel for video of (1/3.2in)^2/(2,070,000) it has better low
      light sensitivity than others in the Vixia series. I have no interest in using
      it for stills. I wish it was weather resistant and this is where the Panasonic
      SDR-S10 comes in handy when I must shoot in the rain. The Pentax Optio 33WR is
      also weather proof and uses AA batteries so I usually have it along just in

      The DM-100 mounts right on the camera and is great for
      interviews. I used the ZOOM H2 to record the sounds of the Wave Organ on San Francisco Bay, it just fits in the pipe openings
      and has a drum setting to get both the very loud as well as the soft low
      frequency sounds of this unique instrument.

      I use the Table-Top Tripod as a shoulder stabilizer for hand
      held shots. It is compact and very effective. I have described this previously
      in these forums. The SLIK has remarkably smooth pan and tilt for an inexpensive
      travel tripod. The 585 modosteady is both compact and easy to adjust balance.

      I mostly post on my YouTube site <roblewis56>.

      Hey everyone. I’m from Canada. I like watching videos on the net. I have a blog where I keep track of all the craziest videos that I find at My favorite recent find is this crazy video.

    • #185182

      Hello, my name is Jeff Roldan, creator of http://www.UnlimitedStockMedia.coma solution to overpriced HD stock footage. A little over a year ago, we set out on this project and have become quite passionate about it. Since I’m involved in a lot of promotional and documentary filmmaking anyways, it’s nice to take shots from current projects and make them available (and affordable) to everyone. If any of you have been involved in any type of search for stock footage, you know how quickly it can add up!

      If anyone out there is looking for something specific and can’t find it or you have a project that we may be able to help out with, please feel free to get a hold of us!

      William here. I cut my production teeth on a community channel television station. VHS edited with A/B roll linear technology. That was in the late 80’s. Since, I’ve a number of projects under my belt. Save for one hired gig, all that I’ve done were out of passion for the art. My latest pride and joy is a 40 minute narrative, still in post production. (Modern technology, of course.)
      To be sure, I am an amateur, with no delusions of snagging any major awards (oscar?), but I will enter festivals. Mistakes were plentiful, including recently made ones. But even pros make them.
      I listen and learn from others with the “passion”, and I’m more than willing to share my knowledge and experience.
      Keep em rolling, everyone.

      Jack Wolcott from Bellevue WA, just outside Seattle. My wife and I own a video production company; been in business 13 years.

      I began working with video in 1964 — closed circuit instructional TV at The Ohio State University where I worked as studio cameraman, floor manager and director, and acting in public service shows on the local NBC affiliate. Later, when I came to Seattle, I hosted a program on the arts on the local PBS station.

      Taught at the University of Washington for 32 years, using video much of the time. Did research under IBM sponsorship for 10 years, part of that time developing laser-disc productions for use in higher education.

      After we started our business in 1998, Judy (wife) and I attended a couple of the early Videomaker conventions in Burbank, mostly to see what folks who were interested in video were doing. Since then I’ve taught three production seminars for Videomaker Magazine here in the Seattle area.

      Our company does a lot of one-on-one work with people who need help creating photo montages and transferring old tapes and film to DVD. We also do a great deal of work with local and national businesses, shooting seminars, documenting construction projects and developing and shooting promotional materials that get displayed at trade shows and on the web.

      I believe Videomaker Magazine provides an excellent service to people with an interest in video, both as a hobby and as a profession. The quality of product reviews is excellent — thorough and thoughtful — and the advice to be found it the magazine’s pages is usually spot on.

      Hello Friends,

      I am a new comer to this forum and to the Video Making World in general.

      In short, I was born in Ukraine but a half of my life I spent in Turkey. One year ago I moved to a majestic small town called Kas. Under a spell of this place I started photographing but was never satisfied with the results. Looking for my own style I found out that only video shooting can help me to create and produce those movies which path through my vision. One day I stopped dreaming, just left my job, bought a video camera I dived into this amazing world

      If you think that I will right further how happy I am, you are wrong. Now I understand that videographing is a hard work. Shooting gives my extreme pleasure but processing footages became a real hell for me. Starting from downloading the proper software and finishing with publishing my works in internet I am in total failure. I feel very lonely having nobody to ask for a help and advice. Also I have to travel alone because other people do not share my interests.

      I am lost. I do something wrong. Maybe I bought wrong camera, maybe by PC is bad, maybe I am silly? Enough emotions! The worse is the better is my slogan. My failure brought me to this forum. And hope to find new friends and meet a lot of interesting people.

      Mari, you have certainly found a good place to get help and a LOT of folks here at the Videomaker forums are going to be responding to your questions, concerns AND help and encourage when you are discouraged or depressed due to your video frustrations. You’ve had a GREAT start from SargeHero who responded to your conversion questions on another thread. Luis is a GREAT guy and knows a LOT about technical aspects of the video business.

      Hi my name is D0n and I’m an alcohol-…. wait-a-minute…. wrong group…

      I’m a still photographer turned video/multimedia shooter…

      have been playing with cameras for years…..

      I started hanging ’round here after I bought my first video camera, a sony hdr hc1, and have even bought a few copies of the mag off the racks (Chapters carries them on and off it seems).

      Nice bunch of people here.

      Hi guys.

      My name is Dave, I’m an Australian amateur photographer and have recently become interested in shooting video with my dslr (Canon 5D ii). I edit with Adobe’s Premier Pro CS 5.5. I shoot mainly wildlife and macro stuff. I hope to learn from you guys and look forward to participating in this forum.

      Hi everyone my name is Allan.I just came across this site last night and I just wanted to say hello.I have been shooting and editing video since 1991. I started my video businessin 1992 and I am having a great time. No i diden’t go to school for this I starteddoing video as a hobby. Now I specialize in multi camera remote controlled live mix events. I am wondering what everybody else is doing when it comes to shooting video.

    • #185192

      Well, my name is Josh Melancon. My friend and I, Zack, have been making videos since our early childhood and haven’t stopped since. We usually learn everything the hard way, but that’s how we get a lot of experience. We usually like to make funny, action, or scary video when we feel the need to. We are both still in college and are still learning a whole lot of stuff. What we really want to be able to show through our videos is that anyone with a vision can make whatever they want. And make it cool too.

      Hi, I’m Greg. I’ve been a commercial photographer for 40+ years. I
      am 1 of the first shooters to bring digital photography into the studio
      over 23 years ago. in the 70s & 80s I used to shoot cinema &
      video for commercial & documentary production. I found I didn’t
      have enough time to do both still & cinema so, as my passion was
      still, cinema & video went to the sidelines.

      My wife of almost
      40 years passed away & I semi-retired. This has given me the time
      to get back into video. The introduction of large format chips for
      video now gives videographers to finally get that film look, instead of
      the old up against the wall, soap feel. Much better.

      I have
      been involved with many world wide forums & find them very helpful
      & informative. Look forward to seeing what everyone has to say
      & hope some of you can help when I may need it

      Luis Maymi Lopez

      I thought I introduce myself after all this time, who knew? Anyway…

      I’m Luis O. Maym from Puerto Rico, currently owner of a corporation called “Xeneuxe” which dedicates to video production, mostly for the web, Internet marketing services and among other programing relating things. I’m an Adobe fan and I have been using all Adobe Creative Suite Production Premium programs since CS4. Although I know how to use Sony Vegas Pro and Final Cut Pro 7, I prefer Adobe because I can’t imagine working without After Effects, Photoshop and Premiere at the same time. I’m a dedicate and passionate person, always willing to learn something new that can help me grow. I can be a little ambitious when is time to work and I don’t know how to stop unless I finish my projects. As a business owner I strongly believe in my team members and I’m always open to work together so we can all get to the finish line. I expect great results from everyone because each have something to share with the world. In general I’m a passionate working person that likes establishing goals no matter what the circumstances are. Personally I like listening to people stories (that why I join Video Storytellers), I have basic knowledge in martial arts (Aikido) and I’m open to learn new things that will make me better than I was yesterday.
      My motto is:
      “The meaning of a movie are the characters, the life of the movie is the music, but the magic is in the editing”

      Everyone else is doing it so I guess I will:

      Name: Gregory D. Watts
      Age: 44
      Sex: Male
      Married: Yep (24 years)
      Kids: 2 Boys 1 Girl (passed)

      Got interested in photography at about 9 (Not by Choice) Took an interest in it later as documentation. At 14 had the chance of a lifetime. I was living in Salpulpa Oklahoma and “Rumble Fish” was being filmed. Francis acquired the use of my cousins flat for the apartment in the movie, which allowed my sister an me to get onto the set. I fell in love with watching Francis direct. I fell in love with the action behind the camera. A young and upcoming actor on the set fell for my sister, so we both got non-speaking parts. We spent the entire shooting time on the set everyday until the movie was completed in that area. It was enough for me to fall in love with the back end of the camera.

      A year later I had the chance to work on “The Crucible Key”, poor movie, budget issues, control issues, but I learned a lot even if it was never seen. I soon started shooting my own movies, which lead me to where I am today.

      I run Tasana Studios a part of Tasana Services. I shoot more for fun and personal enjoyment. I enjoy exploring the dark emotional issues of life, loss, failed hopes, unattained dreams, death, (but not these goth type people) I am working on a movie now that I will post later to give the idea. Real life type stuff, not the riding off into the sunset with the girl in arms, but real stuff. Serious issues. I have never enjoyed making comedy. Make then cry I say. (One should not write this on 2 hours sleep.)

      Afternoon All,

      I’m Ben, 17, about to become a Railway Apprentice. I’ve done a fair bit of Editing (Mainly using Grass Valley/Canopus ‘Edius’ (4,5 and 6)), but was too far through my education when I considered video editing a serious career, so I’ll hopefully end up one day as a proper editor for a TV station (we’re all entitled to dream are we not? 😉 ) I’ve recently uploaded my 100th video to YouTube, and when I got there I took the chance to have a quick look over some of my older videos and I really realised that I my ‘skill’ has increased rather a lot over the years! :L

      Outside of video editing I enjoy Railway Modelling and a little bit of Urbex.

      Annnnyway, here’s one of my many videos 🙂

      Hi Video People,

      I’m Joseph from the Philippines. I run a one stop shop for events (mostly weddings and birthday parties). And I was really into photography a few years back. Then I realized it’ll be more lucrative to learn video since everyone else is doing photography. Now I own a Panasonic DVX100A and a Canon 500D and I just trained a team to take stills for me.

      Well, that’s me. How about you?

      Hi all, I found this site while searching online resources to aid in composing a contract to do a music video for a new client's song.

       I am glad to find this forum as I am not a professional videographer, and I wonder what to do with the whole intellectual property thing, particularly; am I reserving Copyright to the new music video that I make or just to the visual portion of it?

        Do I keep Copyright to any of it, and assign a package of Reproduction Rights to the client?

       A little background – I am a visual artist who shoots and edits videos on occasion, the client (a business man with a band in another state) has seen my videos and liked them enough to ask me to do a music video for their first album.

        I understand how a project like this might be easily written off as "work for hire" if it only involved compiling supplied imagery in some kind of blunt collage, but the project will involve considerably more creative input from me than that, the whole will become an artwork on it's own, and I am unsure as how to protect my interest or how to be compensated.

       Your thoughts please – is producing a creative music video "work for hire", for just a flat or hourly fee, or should the artist creating it get a percent of gross before net as well as a fee?

I am now in the process of trying to create my own business around preserving family moments though photo montages for events, but I also do event videography as well. Currently I edit on an iMac, I have FCP7 and I use a Canon Vixia M41. I want to upgrade everything, but I have to start making money first.

    • #205619

      Greetings, everyone!  My name is Jason and I've been shooting video for two years now, covering Warbird and other aviation events in the local area as an amateur.  I transitioned from photography due to 1) my primary lens breaking and 2) the overwhelming response I got from my videos and 3) I was the ONLY person shooting video with something other than a cell phone.  It's been a HIGE learning curve, having to deal with unemployment/unsteady employment while still trying to get the absolute best video out of my very limited equipment.


      This summer my goal is to go from simply shooting clips of airplanes to actually telling stories and sharing experiences with my fans.  I'm utilizing crowd funding to hopefully purchase a better camera for my upcoming projects.  It is very much a labor of love as I am a pilot myself, and due to my financial situation, I am very grateful that my cameras have gotten me into more aircraft than my pilots certificate.  (Including TWO B-25 Mitchells)


      Sorry it's long winded… That's my story Andie sticking to it! 🙂

      Hello Videomakers,


      My name is Ben and I am in awe of the work some of you do. I am a reasonably accomplished web designer computer programmer. Still have of yet not branched out into videography. Would like to learn how and am hoping to pick up a few pointers. I have  a Canon G11 digital camera that does have a video feature built in and hope to start using this along with related editing software on my Mac. Eventually when I figure out which video camera to get I would like to get something that does HD.


      With that being said,  you all have a great resource of info here and hope to learn more about this art.

      I'm Larry,

         I learned the basics of video making in a media school that my church put on,in the second section we shot a video from a story board and I was left with the job of doing the final cutting,

      I got it done 2 hours before the deadline, and it was used to reqruit more volunteer to serve in the video department. As time went by I collected 4 HD cameras, sony Vegas pro editing software, built

      a computer powerful enough to do the job, and been freelancing and volunteering for the childrens minisrty at my church, the have a directer in ther who comes up with  day glow puppet show that I shoot for them. I just went down to the Bosque Del Apache widlife refuge to test a new camera and just finished editing the video which I'll put on YouTube later today. I've done three multi camera shoot for plays and events and have learned a lot from doing them, I like to self generate projects that challange me.

      Hi, Eric here,

      I am 50 years old an amputee,(Rt,leg,BK), though neither of those things defines me. I am someone who tends to approach everyone else as if they are friends, even though I have just meet them. It is an oddity of my social decorum, and can be very unsettling for people I understand. I may be a bit naïve and idealistic, but I really think the Beatles had it right with, 'All We Need Is Love.' (I would like to think that, in some way defines me.)

      This is only the second Forum I've become a member of. Being a prolific member of more than 2 years at the other forum, and some would argue, maintaining a unhealthy level of participation, has made me a bit jaded toward newbs. I always try to correct myself, and keep the prospective that what seems silly, and yes, stupid questions from green tongues now, are not any different from ones I may have asked two years ago. Or, ones I may ask here now.

      My total knowledge of video production/post production consist of about 6 months working as a camera operator for a public access TV. Show about 15 years ago. This included a tiny bit of instruction in editing. Oh, and I was given and subsequently sold a TK-47, which means little, but a very interesting experance.

      I have come to this forum because I want to produce a online video, that I have spent a good deal of time scripting and story boarding. I understand, (I think) that quality cinematography is not something one learns from an online forum. As a satirical online comedy piece, I am not looking to produce anything of high cinematic quality. (though, of course, I would strive for it to be the best quality possible with in my skill, or lack there of.)

      What I hope I can learn through this forum, are some basic video/audio post-production editing skills. Which I believe will give me a better idea of what should be shot, and how to shoot it. I will go no further here, as this is an introduction thread, and I have covered that plus.

      I would be very receptive to any advice anyone might offer here, or in a PM. I am an attentive learner, and of all my faults, feeling I know anything enough, that I do not appreciate kind advice, is rarely one.

      Hi I'm Bryon, I started out as a print designer in 1997, but had the opportunity to work on a regional reality show in Salt Lake in 2006. Found out I had a natural ability for editing so I was hired as assistant editor for the show and grew from there to be an offline editor/camera man. I'm on the job trained from a guy with 25+ years TV production experience, so I was basically paid to go to "school". Since then I have edited and filmed for over 120 episodes for 4 different TV shows. I currently edit/produce a hunting TV show for a small company that airs on the Sportsman Channel and just completed my 50th episode for them.

      Hi, I am new to this forum and new to video in general but with a strong background in still photography. I have a need to produce short web based videos and need to get my head around the basics equipment requirement needed to do a decent job. The equipment I currently own includes the following: 


      1. Canon 7d with a reasonable selection of quality glass

      2. A good tripod

      3. Rode Videomic

      4. 27" iMac current model


      What I don't have but realise I need is:


      1. A basic lighting system, including backdrops

      2. Appropriate software 


      So I guess I need to know is the equipment I have appropriate and what advise can you give me on the lighting system an software?


      Many thanks in advance, any ideas, advice or suggestions gratefully received.

      How's it going everyone?

      The name's Ben, I have no formal schooling for videography but aspire to do some good productions in the future. I am completely self-taught starting from 2003 when I dove into the realm of AMV's and walked away with some valuable editing experience. Currently I roll with a group of good friends as my "vid crew", though they mostly do the acting and some prop usage. All the editing and vast majority of the shooting is handled by yours truely. While my current career has contributed to a slowdown in progress (Air Force), we have big hopes on our future projects.

      My current video equipment consist of a Canon Rebel T3i and a Sony PJ10V. My current video editing program is Sony Vegas Pro 11.

      I'm hoping to learn alot on here and maybe even get a chance to develop some skill as well. Nice to meet you all!

      Hi guys,

      I've never been into video making or editing kind of jobs before. I'm just another guy working in a local Pvt. firm as a Finance Executive but always had a love for movies & music. Anyway, couple of months ago, I downloaded a free software called 'NCH Video pad video editor' & started to play with it & then the fun begins…as a beginner in video editing works, just for fun & see myself how far I can go without any guideline or academic training, I started to make some 'tribute music videos' using my favorite movie clips/characters with 'related' songs in the background. Here are some of my recent videos, looking forward to hear your thoughts, criticisms & suggestions about them:

      My name is Greg Hines and I have a photographer since '02 and got into filmmaking in 2010. Last year I began my video production company FirstMark Productions. I am no newbie when it comes to forums or technique but one should always be ina state of learning.


      I am here to see what I can pick up to help my business really pick up and go.

      Hi!  I’m George Henderson.  My hobby is EDITING VACATION VIDEO (as opposed to SHOOTING video).  It’s very rewarding when I can transform a horribly boring tape into something that friends enjoy watching.  


      Our first camcorder was an 8mm Sony HandiCam that we took on a cruise to Alaska.  When I got home, there were fourteen hours of “mind numbing” video.  I trimmed it using a VHS recorder, creating a somewhat less-boring 90-minute video.  That old VHS recorder had the ability to replace the original sound with music, and I inserted video of homemade signs for titles.


      I bought my first issue of Videomaker in 1995 or 1996.  In 1997 they advertised a  product called “Video Director 200” that was later renamed “Pinnacle Studio 400”.  This came with software and hardware: a purple box, serial and parallel cables that plugged into the PC, plus audio/video/sync cables to connect the camera and an IR blaster to control the VCR.    A lo-res proxy file was captured for editing on a timeline.  Then click a button and a miracle of robotics sometimes happened!   The software sent commands to the recorders, attempting to position the tape, overlay titles, and even create transitions.  It was a great concept, but it was mostly doomed to failure when used with consumer equipment like mine.


      In 1999 and Pinnacle allowed me to beta test a new product called “StudioDV” with my new miniDV camcorder.  StudioDV was the great-granddaddy of their “Pinnacle Studio” line of products.  Occasionally I could successful complete a video edit, but Windows crashes and never-ending upgrades were frustrating.  Along the way my wife and I did a lot of traveling; hundreds of hours of boring camcorder tapes accumulated on my shelf.


      I started using Adobe Premiere in 2003, and really enjoyed learning it.  But the editing software and computer operating system were still crashing too frequently.  I was spending more time as a computer technician rather than having fun editing.  So in 2005 I bought a G5 PowerMac.  Final Cut ran reliably, crashing only once a month (compared with once a day)!  Today I use a 27” 2011 iMac with Final Cut Pro X.  My hundreds of hours of tapes are digitized and archived onto a Drobo.  My wife and I don’t travel too much anymore, but when we do I take video & stills with a Panasonic Lumix point n’ shoot.


      Those old tapes reflect a terrible truth:  I’ve never been a “great” cameraman!  I am stuck with all of that video, and no one wants to see it!  I’ve searched the Internet; there are lots of sites that have hints about preparing for vacation, what to shoot, and how to shoot it.  There are other sites that train you to use your editing program.  But no one offers hints to rescue poorly-shot video.


      Yet these are memories that I want to share.    So I wrestle with the source video and still photographs, pray for inspiration, cut like crazy, and sometimes come up with finished products that friends enjoy.  Often they take the form short vignettes.  I try to fill them with quick-cuts, music, narration and jokes; sometimes they are completely absurd.  And sometimes the audience stays awake! 


      It’s hard to find inspiration for these projects.  How do you create a story when you didn’t have one to start with?  What do you do for B-roll when your A-roll is impossibly boring?  That’s why I’m here, looking to find and share inspiration!  


      If you want to see some of the things I’ve already tried, I have a YouTube channel, plus I'm using my blog to go back and look at my own "history of editing vacation video".


      Best to everyone, see you on the forums

      Dear Greg:


      I am not a happy camper.  I write but no one answers me.  This is not endearing.

      I paid Videomaker for a subscription but I am not getting a subscription.  I've been a subscriber since 2010 but lately, even afar paying for a subscription, I'm not getting any magazines.

      Please tell me who I can complain to.  If you got my check, then you should send me magazines.  If you don't send me magazines, then I should get a refund.  If you neither send me the magazines or a refund, then I should take the matter up with someone else.
      Please let me know soonest.  Thanks.  I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hello all,

                     My name is Mark, and I am reallllyyy new to recording, camcorders, and video editing. My current and first camcorder is the Canon Vixia HF G30. So far so good, aside from the face I had to send it back to Canon less than a month after I got it. My wife and have started a community based radio and online tv station. We record our church masses, high school sports, local govt meetings etc. Right now I use a video editing program call Camtasia Studio 8. We have a membership to the Adobe cloud and will be migrating to adobe premiere pro, after effects and audition, but man, what a learning curve! I am glad to finally have found a place like this! My main focus at this point is to learn my camera. Could anybody suggest a video or course for noobs that would help me learn about the settings in my camera. White balance, shutter speed etc, and when to adjust them and why etc? I would be so grateful you have no idea! lol

      Hi, I'm Jack. I live in the Orlando area and enjoy filming, editing, composing, etc. I've been a bit lost lately on what to film and am trying to find my ground again. I've given up my producer position with a filming company last year to be home with my family. I have [a lot of(?)] my own filming gear and an editing/post production studio sitting idle collecting dust. I'm pondering ideas to put it all to use even if it's just for fun.

      Hello folks!


      Glad to be here!


      I'm a gaming/adventure enthusiast, and have decided that it's time to take a crack at some things. 


      Here's my profile's 'about me' text:


      I want to create some really handsome video content for Minecraft. I'm interested in using a combo of 3d animation and chroma key to offer something maybe not seen before.


      The big Minecraft Youtubers are generally moving from 30fps to 60. I'm aiming for a richer, cinematic feel, so I'm going the other way. What could possibly go wrong!? 0_O


      Total noob at this, btw. Dunno exactly what I want to do, but I'm very interested in learning OBS, Blender, VSDC Free Video Editor, VLC Media Player, WinMorph,, IrfanView, and Audacity.


      I also need to learn photogrammetry pronto, so add jMc2Obj and Mineways. If I can muster baseline proficiencies in these, and write an emotionally powerful script, I'll be off and running!


      No pressure!




      Instead of anything real-world, I'll have to build each character, prop, and set either in a 3d modeling program, within Minecraft itself, or – hopefully – a nice combo of the two.


      Wish me luck!  I suspect I'mma need it

      I do music videos as my hobby. Creativity, self-learning, sounds of the music, movements, little a bit art mixed with little a bit fashion. This is the thing for me and also someday would love to move to short fashion movie or some other interesting deep thing. So cooperating with others would be fun! You can contact me anytime!
      I am still in the beginning phase, but already quite many projects have filled my hands. For now I have done that for free, because it`s learning through fun!

      Hello to all,

      My name is Matt and I am member of a start-up that has developed an artificial intelligence able to compose music instantaneously, regarding needs of a video (duration, styles, sequences, etc).

      First, music composed by this AI will be available on, with a special offer before and during its launch : every new registered user will get 1 hour of music for free.

      In a second time, we will release an online “on measure composition tool” that will allow to describe a video (durations, intro, end, sequences,etc) project and get music specially created for your video.

      I hope you could take a look at and that it could help you.

      Do not hesitate to pre-register to get 1 hour of free music (available at download once first version is ready, in a few weeks).

      Thanks and best regards,

      Hi all,
      I’m new to the forum. I’m a musician/songwriter from Oregon. One of those complete losers that refuses to stop developing as an artist, in spite of whatever roadblocks come up.
      I’m an aries/pisces cusp, and I don’t believe in astrology, and my favorite flavor of ice cream is whatever flavor has chocolate chunks, peanut butter and cookie dough.
      Since I don’t really have any friends to make music with (although I do still have friends, thank god, they just don’t make music, or participate in any media creation), I’ve begun building this YouTube Channel, as an outlet.
      Feel free to stop by and comment, if you like…. OR NOT, as this is NOT a shameless promotion, only an introduction (before I get the list of criticisms of people who want to size me up…)
      Anyhow, glad to find this forum, and I look forward to the connections there might be to make here.

I signed up on this website, and validated my account, but when I go to post a topic in the video and film discussion forums it asks me to login, and then I when I attempt to the page just refreshes and nothing happens. Can someone please help.

      Hello everyone,

      My name is Robbert Verwaart, from the Netherlands (Europe). Nearly 2 years ago I bought my first action cam and start filming my favourite kind of sport; road cycling. My goal was to make some awesome on-route shots from within the peloton. Soon I found out that filming / editing was waaayyy more than just some shots in 1 video. I find it a very cool and relaxing thing to do!
      So last year, during my vacation in Croatia, I have been filming a lot more, making daily overview video’s and got more and more affected by the art of making video’s.

      After all; I’m still quite new to this hobby :). I’m hoping to learn a lot from you guys and be able to create new things every now and then.

      Hello everyone,
      My name is Alice from New Zealand. I’m studying Multi-media in school and at the same time working in a Film making studio and equipment rental. I started making short films since high school with an old camera of my grandpa. It works perfectly, even though I need quite a lot of time to edit the film, but I enjoyed it. I feel lucky already to find this forum, so many helpful advice! I hope to continue my film making journey with your help. Thanks!! 🙂

      Hi – I'm Ralph Wood; 66 years-old and an amatuer photographer / videographer who has been volunteering for a local summer college baseball team (Peninsula Pilots) in the Coastal Plain League for 12 years.  At the end of each season I create a keep-sake DVD with slide show and video highlights for the players, coaches, host families, and team staff members.  I use Proshow Producer for my photo slide shows and Cyberlink PowerDirector for video editing and DVD authoring.

      I am seeking to change my videography approach from capturing pitch-by-pitch to a more creative approach that captures what I call "outside the lines" memories for all involved – including the fans.  That is what brought me to

      Looking forward to learning from VideoMaker and its members.

      What’s good in the hood everybody. My name’s Erik, I live just north of LA, blah blah blah

      Anyways about a year or so ago I got really into working on cars, and the lack of (good) information online led me to want to make my own. So I think it’s been a year since I did my first video on YouTube. TwerkToSpec btw ya digg ya digg?
      Health has kind of kept me at bay for a bit, but I still release videos every so often, infact I’m about to start editing up my latest one.

      Feedback is always appreciated. I dont do too much in the way of editing, but sound and color are two things I know nothing about.

      Hello, I am learning how to make videos. I wish to keep all my videos on DVD or BD.
      Well, it seems too expensive to store videos on BD. But it will not lead to quality loss, right?

      Hi Guys

      I’m John, and I use my Panasonic Camcorder to record junior sports events at 1080p 60fps (so I can slo-mo). I also use the Cyberlink software for editing/titles/music/theming and then use Google Drive, Facebook and personal cloud storage to share with players, parents and coaches.

      Hello all, hope I am in the right place.

      What’s going on everyone. My names Erik, Live in LA, all that good stuff.

      I had a random health issue a few years back which kept me home for a bit. In that time I had to stay productive, sooo now I make videos haha.
      I wouldn’t call it a career, but I’m happy.

      I’m Bob. I’m an amateur musician, photographer and videographer. I’ve been retired from my job as a computer specialist for about 10 years. I’ve created 27 videos on youtube over the past 9 years and have gotten about 40,000 views. My newest camera is a Nikon Coolpix B700 which has 4K video. I got it used on ebay 9 months ago for $320 and I am very pleased with it compared to my previously used Nikon D7000 shooting 1080P. I use the Zoom R16 as a stand alone audio recorder. I use Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition for editing.
