VR, with the right marketing, a good set of tools, and experience you can certainly make a living, and more, as a professional independent video services provider. What has worked for me is diversity, since video is ALL I do and on a full time basis (writing, graphics design, and video are my ONLY sources of income) I pretty much manage to make as much on virtually ANY given gig as I did in my regular day job working 40 hours or more a week.
Some producers like/prefer to “specialize” in say, wedding, or such, and that is all fine and good. However, there are so many other celebrations of life that go on virtually everywhere, with the right marketing you cannot help but generate income. I have two marketing slogans: “If you market, you will make it,” and “Somebody somewhere celebrates something every day!” 1990-2008 Earl Chessher.
There’s so much more to a video production business than JUST weddings. I have been amazed at the opportunities and marketing possibilities since diversifying. http://www.eccomeecgo.blogspot.com
You can certainly pursue this as a career change and a business that can “pay the bills.”
