View Full Version : Hello from San Francisco!
November 14th, 2011, 06:37 AM
How's it going everyone? My name is Sean, I'm a San Francisco based freelance director of photography and independent filmmaker. Currently I am shooting and editing for two wedding filmmaking companies in the bay area, and doing corporate video production for some local businesses. But, I'm a filmmaker by trade and I want to get to know everyone in hopes that we can collaborate on some really cool film/video projects.
Check out my work on my website (sean finnegan director of photography | cinematographer, cameraman, photographer (http://www.seanfinnegandp.com)) and let me know what you think. And if you're in San Francisco, definitely touch base with me! Nice to meet you all.

I'm 20 miles south of SF on the coast and have a question: do you know where I can have a dvcam tape captured to drive? I have an editing gig and no means of capturing dvcam cassette the shooter handed off to me.

Mark, there are a few places that do tape transfers in the city. I can't of them off the top of my head, but a google search will bring them up. Also, you could rent a dvcam capable camera from Gassers or borrowlenses.com and just do it yourself.
Hope that helps

Welcome Sean. I hope you become a regular on DVinfo. It's a great resource. I would also suggest checking out the Bay Area Professional Videographer's Association (Bay Area Professional Videographers Association (BAPVA): Welcome (http://www.BAPVA.com)). We have monthly meetings, exhibitions, guest speakers and hands-on seminars.
Mark, I have a DVCAM deck, but I'm in North San Jose. You can take it to VMI in Sunnyvale 408 745-1700 (ask for the rental department).

I am in SF and have a DVCAM deck. If you still need to do the transfer, let me know.
And: welcome, Sean!

About a year ago, pretty much right after I posted this thread actually, I got a full time offer from IGN Entertainment. I'm a cinematographer/producer over there, so that's what I've been up to.
