Introduction: Chances are, you're here to view my video style, not to see my clever writing. Scroll down to the photos and video samples to see if you like my style. Thumbtack makes us fill this stuff out anyway. Regarding COVID safety: COVID-19 is a terrible disease, especially for those that develop strong symptoms. I had strong symptoms in January of 2021, and I wouldn't wish the pain and sickness I experienced on even my enemies. As a precaution, I wear my mask during production, as does anyone I hire to work with me. Plus, my mask has my logo, so that's good for branding. Most of the time, production is done outside, and we are able to maintain a distance of 6 feet or more. However, with certain items, certain movements, and certain lenses, it is not always possible to maintain a distance of 6 feet or more. My cameras do not zoom; therefore, getting a close up sometimes requires being close up. I do my best to hold my breath when needed, and to make close quarters work as quick as possible. I do not wear gloves or frequently disinfect my gear because I only handle my own gear. If your product needs to be moved, I will ask you to move it. If you leave your product with me to shoot, I will disinfect your product before returning it. If your product is a cheeseburger, there's a good chance I'm going to eat it when I'm done. Much of my work involves aerial video and photography, or drones. In the case of drones, I can usually maintain an adequate social distance, and I can maintain a touch-free environment for you. However, when a drone is in the air, it is of much more concern than COVID, as a drone can become a destructive force if one isn't careful. Enrique Iglesias can attest to that. During takeoff and landing, I will announce what is happening, and ask that everyone stay away from the drone. Drones push a lot of air, and my larger ones can push rocks and dust around with a lot of force. I recommend people to stay at least 20 feet away from a drone during takeoff and landing, especially if the person is wearing shorts or a skirt.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Typical price breakdown: Unedited Aerial Video / Photography: $100 per hour Edited Aerial Video / Photography: $200 per hour Unedited Ground Based Video Recording / filming: $100 per hour per camera, 2 hour minimum. Video Editing, Synchronizing to Music, Titling, etc: $50 per hour. Video Compositing / Advanced Graphics: $100 per hour. Voice overs: $100 per every :30 seconds. DVD/Blu-ray combo copies: $25 each. Flash drives: $20 to $60 depending on size. Hard drives: Typically $100. Explanation of terms: Ground Based Video Recording can be done using my cinema camera or one of my drones mounted on a stand or in a handheld rig. Unedited is raw footage only. Raw video will be sent to client and will not have any coloring, graphics, processing, etc. performed prior to being handed over to the client. Edited video includes simple editing tasks including basic timing to music, simple static or basic motion titles, coloring, and transitions. It does not include animated graphics, explainers, capturing of websites, layered graphics, etc. Video Compositing / Advanced Graphics includes layered video elements, animated graphics, chroma keying, special effects, etc. Voice overs are completed by professional voice talents. Why does video work cost so much? Any professional video service uses high quality and relatively expensive equipment. Instead of cell phone cameras, or cameras that cost a few hundred dollars, our cameras and lenses typically cost several thousand dollars. We also use them much more often than a regular consumer uses their personal camera. In order to keep our equipment running well, and to keep up with the latest trends in our field, our equipment needs to be updated and/or replaced frequently, which is expensive. We maintain and repair our equipment far more often than the general consumer. The value of our equipment makes us targets for thieves and lawsuits, and we must carry costly liability insurance policies for every job. In a nutshell, doing video work is expensive for us, too.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I prefer to speak via phone and/or face to face to determine exactly what is needed and what the scope of work will be. I like to know as many details as possible before I get started, and I want the client to know as many details as possible so no one is surprised. Client satisfaction is my goal, and the best way to accomplish this goal is through thorough and effective communication by all parties involved. When it comes to aerial videos and photographs, I need some specific information before I get started. First, I need to know the exact location of the item that needs to be recorded. Second, if the aerial work needs to be performed at a specific time, I need to know that specific time. Before any flight takes place, I am required to check the airspace for any restrictions and then submit a request for authorization if the airspace is restricted. I'm also required to check the weather to see if flight is safe, and I need to check for any towers or other obstructions as I plan the operation. After the video recording or photography is done, I then bring the elements back to my computer for editing, processing, or delivery. If the video is being edited, I set up a Zoom meeting so that the client can join the editing process.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I'm a licensed Remote Pilot for Small Unmanned Aircraft (drone). I have over 25 years of experience in broadcast video production. Also, I'm fairly fluent in the Spanish language.
