Roy Verges, new guy around here...

Hello. I thought I'd introduce myself.

My name is Roy Verges, and I'm a computer operator at the Denton Independent School District. About a year ago, the
powers that be here decided that I would become a video
editor/cameraman type of person, and I've really enjoyed
adding this to my skill set.

My background is in music. I've studied a lot of instruments
and styles, and have written and recorded some as well.
I'm currently playing percussion with a local chamber orchestra.

Basically, having a duty here at work that involves a timeline
is great, because it's like writing music. It's a realtime art and is a great pleasure to do.

I've begun setting up an editing studio at home over the last
year. I've got two PCs running Premiere 6.5. I've edited one
wedding (five tapes - 150 hours of editing, and almost two
hours long at the final cut), and at work I've done a 20-hour
project which involved a reading and writing workshop (that
took 8 months to do...).

My focus is going to be editing, since I don't have the budget
to set myself up as a cameraman. If anyone in the D/FW metroplex is interested in collaborating, I'm available, generally,
at 940-458-4465.

Thanks,

Roy

Wow, 150 hours of editing?!? That's crazy! Hope you got paid well!

Anyway, welcome to the forum!

I did the wedding edit for free... my aching back...

But I learned a lot! And I'd do it differently this time
around, too.

Now I'm ready to charge money. I would've charged
$750 minimum.

Oh, and that reminds me - all editors should do yoga.
After all those hours in front of the computer, with
gravity pulling the bones down, yoga stretches
everything out and puts them back in place.
