Ok that was funny. Actually I'm finding this area weak and I'm giving strong consideration to relocating to an area where there is more activity. I have no kids so there is little from holding me back. This is not a money making venture merely a love for filmmaking and a desire to help others make their
productions better.

I take it you own your own studio? I don't know much about Erie, PA, but maybe Pittsburg or Philadephia would work better. And if you'd really like a culture shock, we could always use you in here in Atlanta! Best of luck and I'm going to add your Bogens and Seinnheiser to my cart and check out now :-)

SWEET (the studio)! If only it were remotely cost effective to shoot in Erie. It's only hot for a little while down here... Too late, I've already pawned your gear.

wedding videographers in NE Ohio area to help?

Hey guys, I don't do fulltime wedding work but I usually pickup 4-5 weddings a year for some extra income and to allow my addiction (owning expensive cameras and equipment). I recently had to move from the Youngstown area of Ohio to the Akron/Canton area. All the weddings I have done in the past have been 2 camera shoots and they are always edited in a very creative way. All of my demos reflect this and quite honestly brag about how this really enhances the product.

However, since I moved, I no longer have a partner to shoot the B camera stuff. Usually the B camera is what I use for the "safe" shots. Prettty boring on it's own but it allows me to get a little crazy and do more creative angles and setup shots that require a lot of focusing and positioining. The B camera essentially covers up all of the zooming and focusing I have to do with more standard wide to medium shots.

Anyone in the area interested in helping out for some extra cash? Usually I just pay a flat fee to the 2nd camera man and at the end of the day he hands over the tapes that I use to edit. I am currently shooting with a Canon XL-H1 and do record in HDV. I then downsample and provide the clients with SD 16x9 versions until Blue-ray or HD-DVD becomes a viable delivery option.

I currently only have the H1 so you would need to bring a 3CCD camera to the table, preferably HDV but that is optional. I have only one wedding booked for August of this year....but I am getting asked about doing others and I currently cannot accept them unless I have someone to shoot the 2nd camera stuff.

Thanks in advance.........

Experienced production help needed

Yes, I'm in the middle of shooting a documentary in the South of France concerning the Romani (Gypsy) people. I'm trying to locate someone that would be able to write a very affective treatment that would lead to funding and/or someone who would possibly have connections that would help me get the film broadcast or released cinematically here in Europe. I am hoping that by getting the film viewed by as many people as possible, that perhaps a deeper understanding on a larger scale would emerge towards these deeply misunderstood people. Thank you.

Camerman for Jan. 10 in Atlanta

I need a second cameraman for a shoot here in ATL on Jan. 10th. Will be most of the day. If this one goes well it could lead to an ongoing gig once a month.

Need to be proficient with Canon XL2. Prefer if you have your own but we have several. 3x lens a plus. Experienced necessary (but we're not looking for a cinematographer!)

Pay is $300

Rick, I have lived in Atlanta for over 20 years, what kind of shoot? Indoor, outdoor, tripod, handheld? I have the Canon XL-2 with 20x and 3x, used to have the XL-1 and 1s. I do a lot of video for EPA. I have to be in Jacksonville, FL that week but may be able to cut that trip short. Bob
