Re: What do you do for a living?

I own a videoproduction company and I make videocontent for corporate clients (retail, IT, industry) and (semi)-public organisations (ranging from local traffic education for primary school to international seminars). Besides that I sometimes make very short films.
It's fun and creative work :-)

Since I'm located in The Netherlands my website is Dutch, so most of you won't be able to read and understand it. ;-)
A little dictionary for people visiting my portfolio:
Bedrijfsfilm = corporate video
Videoclip = music video
Sfeerimpressie = impression
Paasgroet = 'easter greetings'
Engelstalig = English
Brainstormnavigator searching for the hole in the sky.....

Re: What do you do for a living?

Nice one Walter

i didn't need your Dutch dictionary to read the site - just used Google Chrome!!


I'm struggling to make a living at the moment (wedding scene), spent 32 years in the Defence Forces, finally left late last year, sort of forced out, the recession is hitting hard here, jobs are scarce. But forever the optimist :-)

Re: What do you do for a living?

I'm a freelance vision engineer.. Which basicly means that in multicamera productions I make sure all the cameras match in color, brightness, contour levels and blacklevel. Aside from that I'm also responsible that the monitors on the studio floor are setup and work with the correct signal patched to them, and depending on the production that the equipment in the OBV or studio also does it's job.

As a hobby I like to mess around with old cameras and homebuilt projects (not earning a living with this).. So I have a Philips LDK100, Panasonic AJ-D700, Ikegami HL-V55 and a Sony AVC-3250.. But I also have a Panasonic GH2 in a shoulder rig with a B4 lens and a GoPro HD Hero 2 for more modern stuff :)

Re: What do you do for a living?

I graduated with a journalism degree in 1979 and was prepared to go to work as a writer and photographer for a Georgia outdoor publication when it was eliminated by state budget cuts. I then went to work as a federal park ranger on a major southeastern lake and stayed there 30 years. Was initially responsible for agency public relations and on camera talent then moved over into park operations and law enforcement. After 911 was detailed with doing Dam and Powerhouse security assessments, drafting security enhancement programs as well as conducting threat response training. I retired from the agency in 2009 and went back to my roots of nature photography and video production. I currently produce and distribute nature DVDs to state and federal park visitor centers.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I’m adding my two cents worth to this thread as I am kind of excited, and need to share! I started my working life with a tool-making apprenticeship, and went on to spend 37½ years at Ford’s Product Development Center in the UK. Most of that time as a design engineer, working with a small team designing test instrumentation, but I always had access to a machine shop to prove out the mechanical aspects of our designs.

During that time I did three years of night school learning photography and film production, and later joined a local amateur film and video club making two international award winning dramas — the second as assistant director. I eventually left the club when the some of the crew’s egos became bigger than the talent’s. Hard to believe, I know 

Westcliff Film & Video Club

Now I am retired, living in New Zealand, and taking stills commercial jobs when they interest me, but my focus is switching more and more to video production. I am loving the learning curve, and NLEs are light years ahead of the linear editing suites I used to use. I have an extensive stills kit, and am now carefully building up a video kit — going slowly, trying not to waste dollars on bad choices, but here’s the thing…

Grip equipment is either serious money, or cheap, and frankly, not up to the job. I thought back longingly to the facilities I used to have available, and decided to do something about it. An email to the secretary of a local model club (boats, steam trains, sort of thing) was forwarded to someone I actually used know, and who has a machine shop any hobby engineer would die for. Earlier this evening he phoned me, and offered me full use of his equipment in return for helping him out with my skill set. I am so excited I had to write to this thread.

Sliders, cranes, camera cage/rig, dolly, skater etc. etc. all for the price of the materials, and my time, (plus anodising the aluminium components). I will also need to find my old copy of Autocad, and hope it will run on 64 bit Windows 7.

Of course, the biggest problem is diverting time and effort from core function — i.e. making movies.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I'm the producer of Driving Sports TV, a show broadcast on a few domestic channels (USA) and the Ignition Channel in South Africa. The series also has a large online following.

When I'm not working on Driving Sports, I produce action sports videos for the likes of Ford Racing, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Mazda and others.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Well, I'm living my dream.

Ever since I was a kid I wanted to fly airplanes and make movies.

I work as a pilot for an ophthalmology group in the Pacific Northwest, and I run my production company Reel Inspirations as well.

My flying job offers me a lot of free time to edit and work on my MBP while waiting for the surgeons to finish. It also helps that my flying job is part-time, roughly 2.5 days per week.

I fly a Citation CJ3 Jet which is loads of fun.

Hoping to save up enough for the new Sony F5 some day.

I can't complain.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Hi. My husband and I have had a footage company for 12 years. Coming from a FX and filmmaking backgrounds, we create all our stock and custom footage ourselves. Most of the footage clips are royalty-free and we've been fortunate enough to have done custom work for as varied clients as American Idol and Terrence Malick. We are considering moving more into narrative filmmaking... we'll see.

Best of luck to you!

Re: What do you do for a living?

I should probably introduce myself here.

I am a 20 something Canadian film maker who has recently started working in Documentaries and Video Journalism with a nonprofit organization called PhotogenX (photogenX.net). I am working on a project of my own called "A [Hope] Film" which will be a series of documentaries that tell the stories of individuals bringing hope to their communities. I am basically a missionary who makes films, but I still try to produce entertaining and enjoyable content that is not necessarily slanted to a religious viewpoint.

I am currently in Central Germany, and looking to stay in the area. I just recieved a brand new JVC GY HM600 Camera plus all of the gear I need to start up my own productions. It is a very exciting time for me and I'm excited to put some content out as I can!
