Hey there everyone...
I've been an amateur Video Editor for about 5 years now, doing most of my own filming and DVD authoring but I'm looking at taking it to the next stage and setting up a small, local company which will offer a specialist service to Churches and like-minded events in Mid-Sussex.
I have a decent amount of equipment (including Sony PDx-10, various Sony & Rode microphones and a separate PC for for editing), a website on the build, a second camerawomen (;]) when I need another camera and a lovely Adobe Suite for my editing.
I know it's extremely simple to say "I'm an editor looking for work"...heck any body can go around saying that. But I want to do this properly (and yes, legally!!) so I'm looking for all you professionals out there who have their own businesses to give me some tips on setting up the actual company. Obviously copyright for music is a big issue, filming licenses and any other certificates I need are what I am really confused about. The company itself will start off with no charge as I build up my client list locally, but I still need to have in mind registering the company officially.
Thanks for all your help.
