Here's the thing. I'm probably going to major in editorial journalism for the rest of undergraduate school, as that degree alone will give me numerous options, yet even for this I will need to save up money to pay for (still requiring me to find work in the meantime).

As far as film/video is concerned, I love it. I'm a nervous wreck when not working, and when working, I feel as if I'm an old mariner out at sea. That is why I know that is what I will pursue with life.

The plan is to build up a demo reel while finnishing my undergradute program, and then ultimately go to that grad school so that I can make connections.

That is the biggest thing, as filmmaking is a collaborative art form.

I'm not saying this to be cocky, or snide, or whatever, but I can honestly tell you that I know more about filmmaking than most of the NYU/USC grad school students do by the time that they graduate. However, right now I am sitting in my parents basement finnishing up my english HW that I don't care about, and talking online in a forum with you guys.

No offense, but I much rather be out there making professional independent feature films. The reason why I'm not is because I neither know the right people to get me the work, or the right collaborators to create a great low-budget product with (when I work it has historically been me having to be a slave driver, as I'm the only one on set who has a working knowledge of the tools/techniques neccesary to put together a film).

So therefore, unless someone could either introduce me to Ron Howard, or would want to collaborate on a full-length feature film in the westchester new york area, economically this tends to be the best option.

As well, in regard to those "collaborators". Film school kids tend to be clicky. They will get each other jobs as they know each others work moreso than most other people in the field. Thus, unless you REALLY make a name for yourself independently, chances are you will be best served getting by with a little help from your friends.

need need 3 betacam sp tapes dubbed to other format

guys - I have 3 betacam SP tapes that I need dubbed to either VHS (SVHS or even regular would be ok) or beta or minidv .. it's probably not worth it for me to rent a deck for this - I'm in NJ although that may not matter...

anyone able to do this for me? let me know how much .. obviously not looking to spend a mint doing this

I think I can get PM's on this board (?) or if you post your email addr. (acceptable?) I can email you

TIA

sorry about the typo in the title - looks like I can't edit that once the post is in

Urgent - need videographer for Sat - Perth, Australia

Hi,

Located in Perth, Western Australia.

I have a wedding this Saturday the 26th of April and my regular guy has just said he can't make it.

The job involves some travelling on the day as it is outside of the metro area (you will be compensated for this). I have all the gear - just need someone to shoot.

Could turn into some regular work if you are good enough.

Please e-mail me chrisb@smallpackagefilms.com if interested.

July 5th shooter for wedding

I'm looking for somebody to shoot a wedding for me on July 5th in Mississauga, Ontario. You don't have to be local though.
It has to be shot in HD, and it has two be two cams. One can be smaller (like HV20).
Any kind of stabilizer (glidecam, merlin) is a HUGE plus.
It's a one shooter package (around 16h). I'm already booked that day, but for various reasons I need to do this one too.

If somebody is interested, please contact me with your demo and pay expectations plus travel cost, if you' re not local.

Thanks

global media pro review

I bought a Libec tripod from global media pro. I enquired about sending a couple of products up to save on postage but my enquiry was never answered. They are terrible at answering emails, which is the only form of communication you have to deal with them. No address or telephone number.

The mid level spreader broke within days of its arrival. Once i finally received an answer about returning or fixing, it becomes clear they have made it REALLY difficult to return or fix the item without jumping through loads of hoops.

I've seen so many questions about this company, mostly unanswered. My experience with them was negative. If anyone has any advice about replacing the sprung screw on the ls22 libec mid level spreader that would be great too.
