About this pro
TAG Video was started because we knew we could do a better job and give customers the results they deserved. I enjoy the diversity and creative challenges presented to me on each and every project.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always had an interest in movies and making videos. I also have done some acting. One time I did a show and bought the official video. It was expensive and a total disaster. The picture was dark, badly framed, and totally missed the action numerous times. I knew I could do better and that the people who paid good money for the video deserved a much better product. Since then I have expanded my services to include documentary and independent film making, graphic design and event videography for stage, film, training, product demonstration, and concerts.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I was brought on-board for a documentary film project on open-wheel formula-one style car racing. The film has been very well received by a major auto manufacturer and has won awards at film festivals, including Best Documentary and Best Cinematography. Negotiations are currently underway for distribution.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Buying and using a video camera is cheap and easy. What really counts is the skill and experience a professional brings to the project. There is more to it than just having a camera. You have to know about lighting, audio, composition, editing, and many more subtle nuances. If you want a professional looking result, hire a professional. You will be glad that you did.
