Another new Brit!

Hello everybody,

I've been skulking around these boards for a while before finally registering.

I'm based just outside of Liverpool in the UK and myself, and my partner, are currently trying to lift our video production enterprise by it's bootlaces.

I have some TV/Video education and an amateur enthusiast background. My partner has a photographic background.

We are in a portfolio building phase at the moment - which essentialy translates to, "We'll shoot anything, anywhere, anytime and cheap!".

I'm using an XL1s which will soon be joined by my partners XM2. So far we have quite a few jobs lined up for the portfolio - a couple of weddings, music video, local business/education promo's, local community projects...

We are trying to shoot and edit as diverse range of work as we can possibly manage. Our clients understand that we have an unproven track record, what we are trying to achieve and we have the opportunity to make all of our big mistakes in a relatively forgiving climate. So far, it is working well...

This is the first stage; the feasibility study. Progressing to a viable business will be the real test.

Are there any hardened veterans out there with any useful pointers? Or how about a few 9 to 5 dreamers like us - what are your experiences?

Hi James. Nice to see another UK XL1 user.

And by the way, are any UK members going to VideoForum next week?

you are venturing down an interesting path and I wish you and
your partnet the best of luck with it!

If your question does not get a response in this forum I suggest

Jon - Same here. I'm going to the Sony HD seminar and the Apple DVD Studio Pro. May have to go Video Forum on two days so I can get to actually see what's on show.
