How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've been the band director and sometimes drama teacher at Northwood Temple Academy for 20 years. We have used video cameras to acheive our greatest moments. I quickly recognized that video with music has a tremendous amount of influencial power. Power for good or power for bad. I want to use it for good. God's kingdom in particular.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We mainly do weddings, school musical productions and high school graduations. We also film and produce DVD's of live concerts. The audio quality is the strong point with each category of work we do. I have extensive experience as a soundman and audio recording technician. This has helped me tremendously in recording audio for weddings. Mic placement is critical for getting that cenematic feel.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A wedding video takes about 3 full days to edit, duplicate and design the packaging. Filming a wedding is the most stressful thing any videographer can do because there's no redoing anything on the most important day of a couple's life. The whole experience is tough trying to capture every important moment, but it is very rewarding when you see the bride and groom's reaction to your work.
