What's your day job?
 
I realize some of us here in the boards are full time production, others striving to get there, like me. What do you do for work when not doing production?



Me = 2nd level Network Analyst for a LARGE military financial company.
Also = Web developer (mainly small sites)
Also = Vocalist (funk, rock, hip-hop)

I write for various magazines and sites, including Videomaker, VASST, DMN and more. I also teach part-time at the Palm Beach Film School. About once or twice a week, I do either indie film or video production (video pays the best, go figure), but of course, I'd love to see that increase, esp. the film production.

I always wondered how one could get a gig as a writer for mags. Very nice, and very busy you are.

It probably gives you access to some pretty nice locations though, no?

It seems easier to get into other techie fields when you have computers and networking down. At least for me, picking up software like Premiere 4 years ago and not being overwhelmed is what made me keep going.

I work at a bagel place :( Unfortunatly I cant get alot of money for video stuff out of the bagel industry.

(I'm only 17) haha

Noa Put July 12th, 2007 11:43 AM

Believe it or not, I'm 42 and retired (Not sure if that is the correct word) but you could also say on pension. When I was 17 I worked in a colemine 700 meters below the ground and one of the priviliges was that you could stop working after 25 years because of the unhealthy working conditions. When I was 25 all the mines closed due to the though competition of cheap imported african cole but I kept the pension priveliges. After that I worked as a carpenter and the last 15 years at IKEA. A year before I retired I decided to do something which I enjoyed doing and slowly started up my business, my father has been filming wedding for more then 20 years so I got the virus from him. When my pension started I did the filming part fulltime and be my own boss, I'm enjoying every bit of it.

I also concur with Marco's comments. Always a pleasurable experience working with you guys.

Yes, but all the bagels you can eat right? LOL

Marco Wagner July 12th, 2007 12:25 PM

Noa,

Wow what sort of gear did/does your father use?

Pete Bauer July 12th, 2007 12:32 PM

Not that there's anything wrong with discussing our vocations in a thread, but remember too that there is a place in your profile to list your occupation.

Unlike your location (City and ST or Province in North America, City and Country outside North America), which is a requirement of DVinfo membership, listing your occupation and gear is optional but often helpful. Definitely encouraged!
