Hi Phil, great job on the video.  Can you post this to it's own discussion so we can give you our thoughts?

Hey friends, I hope all is well with everyone and that you are staying out of the cold. I just produced a video for a Kickstarter program and was curious what your thoughts were. Mind you, this is a first edit, so there may be some rough parts.

Thanks for joining Phil.  It sounds like you have a great background in the video production field.  Please jump in and feel free to share and help as you are able.

Hello friends, my name is Phil Cowen. I am a video producer in Chicago and I am willing to help with productions. My background comes from the military, where I am a Broadcast Journalist. I initially studied at the Defense Information School, which opened the door to me attending film school in Chicago. I am looking forward to hearing about best practices here and helping others out if I am able.

Here is a really good article on making videos, especially if you're new to video.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for joining this group.  I've run a media marketing company for 10 years and we specialize in video production (and web design).  Most of my education is self-taught and there are more resources than when I first started out.  The key is to keep practicing and learning as much as you can.

One valuable resource I use is a membership site called http://www.kre8insights.com/ I don't get anything for promoting them, in fact, I'm a paying member just like the others in the group.  Kre8 has a weekly video call with the creator of the group, a ton of awesome ebooks and videos on the website and a very active private Facebook group.  The cost is very reasonable and I recommend it since it has a good mix of pros and beginners.  Check it out.

Hello All! I am a budding photo/videographer. I am interested in producing marketing videos for businesses. I am just starting out, so I don't have too many bells and whistles, bu I do have a Sony VX2100, Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro. I welcome all suggestions on how I can get this dream off the ground. Here are a few links to my work. Any advice is welcomed. Thanks!

Nice video!  I bet you'll really like the T4i and H4n for your videos.  A DSLR brings up the production value so much!

Hi Jeff,  This project is filming interviews of girls that have been taking a week long summer camp on technology.  You can see a video on last year's program here:  https://vimeo.com/49056975    Last year I used a different video camera and mic, and was not happy with the results and how difficult it was.  Camera was ok, but much larger, etc.

Thanks for the update!  I use the H4n with some of my cameras and love it.  What were you filming?
