Greetings from Winthrop, Massachusetts/ by the sea

Hello all, as the subject says I hail from Winthrop, Mass. Always looking to meet fellow DV professionals (or people who love the art) from the area or anywhere for that matter. I run FCP 3 on a daul 1.25 G4 & shoot with an XL1.
I manage two editing suiets on the North Shore & run a small home biz with a very modest client base. Well, those are my stats. Looking forward to hearing from anyone and talking DV.

Welcome aboard Chuck! Good to have you with us. I think you are
the first from your region here (at least that I know) or I'm just
a weird foreigner that doesn't understand where you are from (heh).

You seem to have an interesting little business. Good luck with it!

Hi Chuck,

There's a few major "Masshole" contributors in here (I'm formerly one myself, before you take offense--grew up in Brookline, my folks live in Newburyport now)...Don Berube, Casey Visco from Glidecam to name a couple. If you ever need some upconversions or additional support gear or that sort of thing, a good pal of mine runs a production company in Watertown called Pulse Media, he's a solid resource and a great guy, very helpful.

It's always a pleasure to hear from another Masshole Charles. What prompted the move to LA?

Well Chuck, I had worked my way up in the Boston production community to the point where I didn't have too much further to go. Pretty much everyone knew me as "the Steadicam guy" in New England, plus I was working as a DP, but I really wanted to work on features and didn't have the credits to get on the ones that came to town.

I was coming out to LA a couple of times a year to teach Steadicam and ended up landing my first studio feature over a weekend that I was sleeping on a friend's sofa, as luck would have it. Six months later I moved out full time, been out here for six years now. I miss the fall foliage and the fresh Sam Adams and Harpoon IPA, but career-wise I definitely made the right choice! And last year I met my near-fiancee who just happens to have grown up in Beverly (moved here nine years ago to be an actress) and her parents moved to Newburyport also...little, tiny world!
