It’s always fun to look back at how you got to where you are. If you asked teenage me what I was going to pursue years later I highly doubt “videography” would make the list. So here’s a little tale about how I got started with video.
When it comes to video work you always have to consider where the finished product will be going. While there are many options, Instagram and YouTube are the two that I use in my own projects more than others, so these two sites will be the examples I work with. (more…)
One of the most exciting skate filming projects was a longboard run I filmed for WashCo. Skate Crew in a nearby state park. This video was by far the most planned. The road we filmed on was smooth, open, scenic, and fast. The combination of these factors meant that we had the perfect recipe for a great skate video.
I’ve spent a great deal of time watching music videos, but I’ve never really tried to make one. I was in a punk band back in high school but while we had ideas of what to do for music videos, we never got to record much of anything so we really lacked the “music” part of the “music video” equation.
“Getting Started” is the title of the first video I did for WashCo. Skate Crew. The whole thing was sort of a mess, but in my eyes it was a necessary mess.
I’ve made many videos in my life both for specific projects and just for fun, but skate video is where I spend most of my time and effort with video editing. This preference begs the question: why?
I didn’t want to be a Communications Major as a kid, and in a way I never wanted to be a Communications Major as an adult either. This may sound negative, but I will explain this statement momentarily.
