Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Video/Film production requires many different technical, artistic and cognitive skills. With the proliferation of technology available to the consumer, "everyone is a videographer" - except that it takes years (decades) to become a competent multi-media storyteller.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I've been involved in visual story telling as a profession since 1989. I'm also a musician and audio engineer. I find that the care and attention I bring to field recording and post production place my finished productions in the "excellent" category.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Creating videos on Maui never disappoints when it comes to stunningly colorful backgrounds.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. People always ask how much my services are. I am far more artistically driven than money driven so I tend to work within people's budgets whenever possible. Hardware and software is constantly changing. I find that charging a professional rate makes it far more possible to keep up with the technology.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. I'm very pleased with the work I've done for the Maui Resort, Lumeria Maui, which is the vision of Soul Space author, Xorin Balbes (featured in my samples).
Q. Do you do any sort of continuing education to stay up on the latest developments in your field?
A. Being a video producer requires ongoing continuing education. Computer platforms upgrade operative systems, software evolves, equipment dies, workflows have to be re-conceived.
