Noob from Orlando

I'm new to this forum, and look forward to learning from you guys. I've been in the video world for the last 4 years, I was previously a plumber...yep a plumber. I am currently working as a camera operator shooting on the Phantom HD and the RED One cameras. I was recently approached by a dance school owner about shooting recitals, so I bought a Sony HVR-A1U, and Sony Vegas Pro 9. I have worked in a studio, but never captured live events, so I am totally new at this, and I'm excited about learning from you guys.

Jim, WELCOME!

What kinds of productions does an ex-plumber find himself producing with a Phantom HD and RED One camera? In case it's not clear, that's not standard equipment on this forum.

I'm a new DSLR shooter in Maitland, but ride my motorcycle up to Sanford 2-3 times per week to workout with a personal trainer in the old town area on Lake Monroe. Before that, I lived on the lake for a year. Sanford's a bit strange, but it's got character!

I'm definitely interested in what kind of productions you'd LIKE to do, as much as what you've done.

Brad, I work at Digital Juice designing and shooting special effects like fire, explosions, water, viscous liquids and stuff like that. I got hired on as a set builder for DJTV, and learned the Phantom and Red One workflow. I have little experience outside of our studio and was recently approached about shooting a recital so I bought a Sony HVR-A1U and joined this forum. I really enjoy getting out and about and capturing live stuff. I also ride a bike, I've got an 08 GSX-R600 and a 94 Yamaha Virago 750.

Jim,

A meeting might not be a bad idea. I'm developing a production team to shoot a pilot tv show for potential sale to various nationally-known entities, and we may end-up short on camera operators. If you're interested in at least discussing the possibility of helping us, let me know.

P.S. Dan, edited message to say "hi." Seemed rather rude to not acknowledge a neighbor.
