Looking to work with team in Sacramento area to learn with

Hey all,

I am moving to Sacramento area mid August time frame. I'd really like to try to learn a bit more post production work, as well as either watch, or even help on taking video for corporate events, weddings, etc. I am not asking for compensation but wouldn't turn it down if my help/work is of value. I'd rather accept compensation in the way of time with someone to learn the ropes. Ideally I'd like to look at doing this part time initially for pay (after I learn a bit), but as I don't have the right gear or the money to get it just yet, being able to participate with someone and learn while using their gear would be most helpful.

I do have a solid understanding of video cameras, their technical aspects, as well as a long background of computers including doing some editing with Premiere. I'd love to learn more about color correcting shots, as well as how to best set up cameras for certain events including using lighting and such.

Thank you.

The most important thing is, what's your budget?

I'm happy to report that we've found a GREAT photographer that we're very excited to work with.

And then there's video. I'm amazed by the amount of crap out there. All of the photo studios we looked at offered video as well and they all sucked at it. The studio we're going with does acceptable video but nothing really great. If I don't find anything else, that will be the way to go but before I give in, I want to look for a place/person that does only video and does it REALLY well. So here I am.

The date: January 15, 2011 (18 months from yesterday so there's still time)
The place: Reception in Mineola, Long Island (NY). Ceremony TBD but not far from that.

If anyone wants to submit themselves for consideration or has any recommendations for quality videographers in my neck of the woods, reply here or PM me.

Thanks very much!

~~Dave
That's kind of far in advance- I usually only book 1 calendar year in advance. However the date is available.

I know it's very far but I like to get things done.

Also, budget is not the most important thing. And I expect that sort of mentality from the person I end up going with. I know we do what we do to make a living, but at the same time, I want someone who thinks the most important thing is that we get a beautiful documentation of our special day. Money talk comes last, just before we sign the deal. I will say though, that if anyone charges anything close to the price of a new car, don't bother.

Also, ideally we'd like to use someone in/around NYC - or considers western Long Island a "local" job. There have been a number of private responses from people who have phenomenal portfolios but are about as far from NY as you can get. I appreciate the interest but it's just not feasible.

Thanks for all of the responses so far.

~~Dave

Any shoot or distance is feasible if you have money. If not, you are on a "budget".

Yes, I am "on a budget." That is, I don't have a limitless amount of money at my disposal for this. I never said I did. If anyone on here is in that sort of a position where they just want to throw as much money as possible somewhere, let me know. I'd love to work for you.

The locale thing is just a matter of being wise with my money. After all, this wedding is the start of my life with someone and I've got to continue building it. I mean, if someone in the UK quotes me $5000 plus travel for a great package and I find a comparable package/quality locally for $5000 (no travel needed), what's the smart move?

I'd say it depends on how good they are.

Absolutely. But if they were of a comparable quality and style, it makes more sense to go local, no?

I'm just saying, I am willing to make this an investment - heck it'll be one of the most important days of my life. But I want to make it a wise one and only spend as much as I need to.
