Mostly HD Archiving for the city I live in...

and I do this... www.orlamurray.com/Hello....

all the content and stuff... I also do music videos/documentaries/corporate events and I'm looking to grow and maybe take on staff over the next phase of this development... most of my friends are DJ types or band members so that helps...

I do Graphic Design as well, for both print and le web and photos... so I'm pretty much in a visual environment all the time...

all of this while answering to my cat, Honey...

and keeping the quality at a premium...

Thank you!

When I was twenty one I made a series of four 1/2 hour doco's on 16mm with my trusty Bell & Howell. Well, they were promotional films for the navy reserve but good enough for our national broadcaster to televise. I got $200 for all four.
Until I turned 40 I made a stack of short films and videos (amateur) until I got the guts to follow my passion. I turned in my career and with a friend, started a production company. That was 17 years ago. I've now produced nearly 3000 doco's or short films (corporate, event, commercial & broadcast), six have been aired in Australia and many more in the US and Asia.
I downsized my company to one (me) and independently produce only documentaries and corporates now. But you never lose your skill or passion. This year I won 3 out of 5 catagories at an international film festival and best film at festival.
The moral of this story is - for those with the true passion - You never fail until you stop trying. Go to it and succeed.
I've just joined this board, and must have been approved pretty quick,
but it makes my soul weep and soar up to the sky to read this.

I'll be 44 this year and only found in the last couple of months my passion: live music videos.
I feel too old for that business, but when the music makes my blood boil, and I can capture it on video, I feel like I've achieved something.

So far I've been a forensic and studio photographer, and in the past 6 years a mum, so I feel I've got some catching up to do.
But I love music ( learning to play the drums ;-), and how it makes me feel, and I want to use the skills I've acquired to do what makes me feel good.

So, wanting to upgrade from my point and shoot with video function to a better camcorder I got here!

And so far, it's unbelievable!!

Thanks guys, and hope to get to know you better.

I am a Creative for Apple, and do the personal training. Specialising in FCS of course. I also do wedding films and making the push now for more corporate work. I don't sleep much either.

I work for a university in the Extension department. Hard to describe what they do; much easier to just say that they do almost everything. Any citizen can call in and get help in a bunch of different areas, from health programming to business development to agriculture related things to youth programming.

It's only in the off time that I can actually work on my real passion.

I'm the "Director of Digital Media" for a small market media group. I'm our primary shooter in the field, and I handle all post-production and output (usually to cable broadcast). I also do some basic audio production for radio.

I shoot internet commercials for money. Mostly funny ones.

I also do activism virals for Youtube for free when people ask me nicely. About 50000 people watched my last one and got me in the Top 5 - Top Rated (All Time) in Non Profits & Activism making me exceedingly happy.

I love the internet as a delivery mechanism, and have been slinging video at it since age 14. In my spare time I love restoring old compositing hardware particularly SGI kit which still makes an appearance in my workflow.

Recently I have hooked up with people working in film, which has been wonderfully eye opening.

So many posts here! Its amazing how many people in this community don't make their primary living in video. I feel extremely lucky to work at a company doing video production 40 hrs/wk! I create video for a publishing company that has .tv channels. Also freelance on weekends if I feel like it, but mostly take that time to work on my own projects (ie docs, shorts, etc).

For the living I'm a lawyer for the gov, 40h/week.
Besides that I'm involved in some culture preservation projects and other NGOs.

Learning film making on my own and hope to kick into full gear after I get my masters degree in January, hopefully.

Hi Andrew

When I was a kid a long time ago my brother turned me on to filming with regular 8mm. I wanted to learn how to do animation so he showed me the basics. I was hooked. I eventually baught an Chinon Super 8 sound Cammera in my teens and continued tinkering with film and animation. I wanted to be a director but it never happened. Life took me in other directions.
Recently though our church baught a Sony PMW-EX1 to shoot video for our internet web site, so the door has once more opened up for me to be pro-active in the video world again. As for what I do for a living? I am a lunch room custodian at our towns elementry school.

I would definatly like to use our cammera for a lot more than what we do with it, But I am not a writer so I will have to look for some kind of project to do.

I work at UPS and deliver boxes everyday. I hope one day I'll be able to drop that and become full-time video/filmo-grapher. For now I'm trying my skills in weddings and small corporate vids.

Hi I'm Aaron

I live in Northern Ireland and work as a chef Manager for an International Catering Company Mon - Frid. Last year I was contacted by a couple who wanted me to shoot there wedding. I did the wedding in December past and have just finished editing and designing dvd covers. I have a Panasonic GS120 and Panasonic gs70 both 3ccd excellent cameras I was extremely happy with the results. This year I have a couple more already booked. This is the first time I have ever done weddings but I'm enjoying the fun looking forward to the others. I have also been approached to make a music video for a freind.
