A New Video Production Contract

As I am starting the New Year in a 12 month video production role, I thought I would document the ins-and-outs of different areas of position. I will be looking at obstacles and work-arounds, theory and tech stuff.

I have no equipment for production or editing currently. Part of the job was to price-up a kit that could handle the type of projects we would be doing and an editing suite that could handle the footage.

The types of projects vary and I won’t be getting into specifics quite yet; and even later I might only discuss projects vaguely, to focus on the creative and technical elements. Here is a rough summary of what will be required:

  • Company promotional videos (/ads)
  • Events
  • Learning/Training videos

I should probably stress that over the course of this blog I would encourage commenting – especially to offer alternatives to the way I am working or for solutions to any problems I discuss and so on. Anything constructive that might help others in a similar situation. The technology involved is developing so fast and this is quite an exciting time to be working in this field.

I will also blog related media which I find along my way which is interesting, inspiring or that I just want to talk about.

Sometimes I will create templates for jobs or tasks and make them available for download and would encourage others to submit similar documents or anything else that might be suitable for this blog – proper credit will be given.

Okay, that’s enough for now. I will soon be posting some of the equipment research and kit I will be using.
