Need EX1 Videographer in Houston!

Hi Everyone,

I will be leading some master classes at a big conference in Houston in January. I am looking for someone to video tape portions of the event for me on an EX1.

This website has been amazing. I have connected with EX1 owners who have taped parts of my classes recently in Paris and in St. Petersburg, Florida. You can see a video from my recent program which was shot on an EX1, at this link:

The Latest News!

(I have limited skills in video but I was able to edit this 18 minute video together on Final Cut Pro on my Macbook Pro and compress it and upload it to Vimeo!)

I love the Sony and it has worked out great to transfer the video onto my Macbook Pro right at my workshops.

If this is of interest to anyone in Houston, please email me at:

Looking for Video work/ experience in NY

Hello! Any New York event/film videographers, film makers willing to take an inexperienced intern? I have been teaching myself video and edit and I need experience! So far I have filmed two weddings, a couple of performances, two art studios and a fashion show, some of it can be seen here: YouTube - celestina646's Channel and here: erick munari on Vimeo. My eqipment is: Canon XHA1, Canon HV-20 with wide angle lens attached, one good tripod, one bad, MacBookPro 2.4Gb with FCP, a roll of Gaffers Tape, Rode Video Mic, Costco Led lights, a bunch of Hard Drives and headphones.
As I work freelance art handling, my schedulle is fairly flexible, and as much as I do not expect to get paid much for the learning experience, some money would be appreciated (negotiable). I live in Brooklyn. Thank you for the attention, Erick.

Hey Ron!

I'm in Lagrange and would have an interest call me if you would like to discuss and are still looking since this thread is a bit dated.

I have been doing wedding and event video for the last three years mainly for friends, family and referals from them. Just upgraded to a Canon XH-1A so looking to expand and improve my skills.

Wedding Shooter in St. Catharines, ON: Sept 27

Passing on this information for a friend of mine. He'll be out of the country for six months and is trying to set up someone to shoot a wedding that he will edit when he gets back. Looking for a shooter with their own gear.

Location: About half way between Beamsville and St. Catharines ON.

Ceremony starts at 2:30 and they want a shooter to stay until the bouquet/garter at about 11:45, so we're looking at probably a bit over nine hours, depending on how much pre-ceremony stuff you want to get.

Ceremony and reception will be at the same venue, so it's a relatively easy shoot, it looks like.

As I said above, please contact with your rate until this weekend. If you are reading this after this upcoming weekend contact

XHA1 User looking to get Experience, will Shoot for Free!!

Hello Guys,

I have recently acquired my very own HDV Canon XHA1 camera along with Glidecam 2000Pro and a tripod. I am looking to get experience in shooting events such as wedding, any corporate events and etc. I will bring my own gear and all I ask is that I shadow with you so I can get some experience under my belt. As stated in the title, I will shoot for free with my own equipment and all I ask is that you just guide me a little.

If you feel you need an extra person to shoot an event I am your man. You can have an extra camera at the event at no cost and it can look more professional as you can use more shots from various angles so in turn we can both benefit.

I am located in Toronto, Ontario so if you are in the same area or nearby, let me know please.

Thank you,

Looking to rent a GL2 or equiv. in N.O. for tomorrow (30th)

I'm in N.O. and my friend had to get out of town because of the hurricane. So I'm one camera short (well, I have a consumer as a backup). Anyone have a GL2 or similar they could rent me for Saturday evening? I know it's late notice but I just found out.

Call me 337-258-0672

Thanks for looking and pass the word if you know someone,

Motion Graphics Experts...Help!

Do most motion graphics pro's work freelance or are there any people out there looking for a steady paycheck doing that kind of work?

The company I work for is in the process of hiring a new production person and I'm definitely looking for someone with more motion graphics experience than actual shooting/editing experience. While the complete package is always nice, we're based in Virginia, Illinois so we don't see a lot of resumes from people with that kind of experience. Is this because it is a lucrative market and most choose to stay freelance to make more money or are they in such high demand that they never go too long without a job?

Also, what sort of pay does someone in that field usually look for?
Any info will help me at this point because I think I might be looking for something we'll never get (or be able to afford). Any information will help. Also, if your motion graphics skills are impressive and are possibly looking for a full-time job and willing to relocate to Virginia Illinois, I'd definitely like to talk to you.

I think motion graphics is a more niche thing than shooting/editing, and also it doesn't seem like Illinois is the most booming place to be for graphics or video in general - there aren't a lot of jobs posted on this board for example that are in Illinois.

Craigslist too - it's rare to find video jobs in Bloomington, Champaign, Lafayette, or Springfield, but there are some in Chicago. I think it's just something that's a bit hard to find so the people offering it are few and far between - it's hard to attract them to this area. I've considered leaving for 'greener' pastures a few times myself.

There aren't many downstate schools with good motion graphics being taught either that I know of - we were just taught how to shoot and edit, and that's about it, so there aren't a lot of readily available highly skilled students either I'd guess. I'm sure there's a few classes at SIU or ISU, but again Chicago is the draw around here, if you're going to stay in-state - or at least that's the way it feels to me from my experience.

Not sure about pay. I think freelance is attractive because it offers you the most profit per job, but it's also lumpy, at least for me it is. That's my biggest struggle with it - I have a flexible part-time job that pays the bills in-between, but sometimes the swings are still a little wild - one month you profit $10000 or something, the next it's more like $500. That'd be my selling point if you're trying to land a freelancer - basically you have consistency on your side. You could try to have some kind of profit-based commission or bonus tied in too -- that might be attractive to a freelancer.

Not sure if any of that helps, just my two cents. I don't do a lot of motion graphics so I'm probably not your guy, but I'm in Illinois so I understand the market you're working in a little bit.
