Texas/Dallas/Ft. Worth based shooter

I'm a Dallas/Ft. Worth based shooter who is looking to expand my horizons a bit. For the last four years I've been a freelance shooter for hunting/outdoor related shows for TV. I'm looking for other opportunities to shoot just about anything. I travel over 200 days a year so it need not be close to home but that would be a bonus (read as in lower daily rate).

I have my own gear which consists of a Canon XL-H1a and all the supporting equipment. I've also spent some time shooting many other cameras including a Sony XDCAM rig so I'm comfortable with higher end cameras.

My profile has a link to my web site with a demo reel. Please contact me if you are seeking someone who does a small amount of editing and knows how to shoot for the edit, is willing to go the extra mile to get the shot and is a team player.

At full draw,
Tyge Floyd

College Film Grad Needs Your Help

Hi, I'm graduating with my film degree in May and I'm trying to move to the Orlando area from Texas as soon as possible. I have been emailing several companies and posting my resume on several sites, with not much success.

I am seeking some advice from fellow video producers. I have over 5 years experience shooting miniDV and beta, and over 2 years experience editing with Final Cut Pro.

I'm just wondering the best way to approach finding a new job and moving. I have tons of experience and a great work ethic. My passion is for video/film production, i'm just unsure of how to find and secure a great job.

Thanks for your help,

Email is easily ignored. call them. get them on the phone. Find out if they have any openings. It may be tough to find a job in your chosen field in Orlando. Heck, it can be tough in LA with all the jobs that we have.

What is it that you are hoping to do in Orlando? And why Orlando?

In this economy almost any job is a great job, but I digress...if you are passionate about production in general you might be happy in any number of industry careers so bouncing around and learning the different trades might help you find a focus.

A good metric of experience in this business is a demo reel/video portfolio, if you don't have one yet...also, offering to work for low or no pay on a few projects is a really good way to beef up your professional experience, forge valuable new relationships, and develop a good reputation for yourself. Times change and industries evolve but it seems like there is always demand for industrious, creative people who can work well in a team.

What kind of job specifically are you looking for? chances are that with your level of experience it may have to be more entry-level than you might like (or at a very small company).

When you say you have a "ton of experience", how much of that was paid and/or for a legitimate company vs. school projects or indie productions? Most companies will be looking for the former when considering individuals for shooting or editing positions.

Shooter (Pref JVC HD100) in London April ?

Hi guys

I'm going to be shooting part of a music vid in central London on April the 19th for a great up and coming band. Its a low budget production and I'm not actually being paid.

But for a couple of hours we could do with a second camera to cover some street based stuff. So we are willing to pay a token £60 for a shooter/cam for the couple of hours we need. Preferably JVC HD100/200.

Central London / April 19th for more details or to discuss

Need to rent Sony EX1 in Seattle/Tacoma Area


I'm doing a seminar shoot and am in need of a third EX1 (I own 2 of them).

I need to rent a Sony EX1 with firmware of at least v1.1x (MxR recording) on April 24th and 25th.

Please contact me web[at] or visit my web site for my phone.

I'm going to be shooting at this address: 1301 S Baltimore St, Tacoma WA and I'll be flying in to SEA (Seattle Tacoma International).

Hope I didn't break any rules posting this here. I need the EX1 and this was the first place I thought of posting. My apologies if I did.

We've got an EX3, but our company is 3.5 hours from Seattle/Tacoma and there's a mountain pass to drive over. But if you get in a bind, let me know and we can work something out.

I’ve had a lot happen in the last couple months and attached an updated résumé to reflect the changes.

This month, my 2007 film, “The Wildlife of Little Hot Springs Valley,” received an “Honorable Mention for Animal Behavior” from the International Wildlife Film Festival.

My 2009 film, “Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park: A Biophysical Overview,” screened at the Sundial Film Festival in Redding, CA on March 15 and received a positive reception from a large audience. I also gave a brief intro at the festival and had my first experience speaking with a powerful mic and a podium. “Prairie Creek” will make its television debut on the California PBS station, KIXE TV, on April 11. Plus, I’m scheduled to screen that film (completed for a school project) at the annual Geography Department alumni reunion at my university.

Furthermore, I finally got my hands on the XLH1A and shot about 9 hours of footage with it. I’ve become pretty proficient with my new camera and am now familiar with adjusting f-stops, gain, and white balance. I recently ordered a new cable so I can try out the XLH1A’s XLR inputs. And, I’ve gotten more practice recording sounds with the Sony PCM-D50. I’ve learned the windscreen is important and it’s key to keep the levels below -12 dB.

John, thanks for the link. I checked out the website of Fischer Productions. It looks like all their shows focus on bullet shooting or hooking wildlife. For the time being, I’d prefer to avoid hunting/fishing productions, but I will keep the company in mind. I know my options are limited and videographers can’t always afford to be choosy.

I'm also a little bit away as well. I'm 2 hours away, in "White Rock", BC. But something could be worked out.

Take a kid hunting or fishing and you won't have to hunt for him or her later on in life. The outdoors were created to enjoy not look at through a glass window.
