What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am constantly kept abreast of current technologies and software for producing high quality video deliverables and I invest in the latest iterations of production software. I am a frequent contributor to the professional legal video forums and I maintain a blog on producing damage videos. I have also passed further qualifying examinations in specialized areas of legal videography, such as the NCRA's Certified Court Presentation Professional coursework and examination. I also subscribe to Joseph's Modern Visual Evidence to stay up-to-date on the case law and local rules relevant to legal video.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I have been certified by two of the largest legal video associations in the world: the National Court Reporters Association and the American Guild of Court Videographers. Over 80% of applicants fail the NCRAs CLVS written exam and another large percentage are weeded out for the practical exam. The certification process for the NCRA is also costly and time consuming and takes nearly a year to complete. I have passed all of the qualifying examinations from both organizations. In the case of the American Guild of Court Videographers I studied directly under the founder of the organization, Dr. Gayle Marquette, Ph.D.
