Thread: Editing links need establishing

  1. Default Editing links need establishing

    Hi there everyone,

    Here's my dilemna. I've recently started my own video production company and to be honest, due to my (apparent) marketing skills and largely through offering discounts to secure some initial clients, have actually picked up quite a lot of work. I've just completed my first paid-for job and am now turning my attention towards the next two.

    However, because the work has come in faster than I expected I am getting a bit swamped (I currently have a day job as well) and could do with establishing a good link or two with some editors who would be willing to take on some work for me.

    To be honest, with my first few jobs, I've only charged a few hundred pounds for the entire video (both two minute internet promotional films for accommodation providers with soundtrack / storyboard / shooting I've already done - preferred editing package is Sony Vegas Pro as this is what I have) so at this stage I can't afford to pay an editor a massive amount.

    However, what's prompted me to write this post is that I've just come back from a meeting with a client who has a large band and has a budget of several thousand pounds to produce a full promotional saleable DVD for the band at their gigs. I also have two other projects lined up for which the charge will be greater than a few hundred.

    So, I envisage that for the right person (s) there will be the promise of increases in pay for editing work further down the line (for me as well of course!)

    So, basically I just wondered if anyone (maybe you're new to the editing game and want the experience like me) was keen to jump on-board with me and become a favoured editor I guess that I can ping stuff over to with a pretty quick turnaround which at first I can't pay a massive amount to but will hopefully (as the business has only been up and running for a few months) start bringing in more money later on?

    I appreciate this might come across as a bit risky for someono and I'm not expecting the forum pros to get out of bed for the money I'm talking about but for someone it might be a break or just an excuse to earn a bit of extra pocket money. I am a genuine guy with a genuine passion for making video and for making myself, and anyone else who might help, a bit of money too.

    That's it really, hopefully hear from someone soon - you can PM me if you'd rather or post any open questions here.

    Many thanks

    Matt

    A responders first question may well be, "where are you based"

    I'm based in Cornwall, on the north coast. I was thinking an alternative if geography is an issue would be to simply send clips via email / ftp or by recorded delivery via DVD.

    Hey Matt, how you doing?

    Cornwall you say I spend a fair bit of time catching a wave or 2 in North Devon. So not too far (!!!) from you sometimes.

    Also in the same boat as you as in juggling a day job as well as doing my video work on the side. Done a fair bit of promo and viral work and oddly enough was talking to my cousin in-law (don't ask to explain that) to do a video for his band.

    It'll be cool to speak to you to see if we could team up and chat ideas.

    I'll PM you my number.

    Hi Matt

    Like you I'm currently in the process of setting up a business specialising in creating video for web (and juggling a day job!). I use Final Cut Express on the Mac for editing (not sure if this is a big problem for you) and I film with an XM2 and a Sony FX1e. I'm based in West Devon - near Tavistock - so am quite local. I'll PM you my email address and phone number if you think I could be of any use to you. Just let me know.

    Best regards
    Piers

    Hey guys - just wanted to say cheers for the offer of help and I'll be in touch with everyone as soon as I can.

    Just to narrow down the options (and relating to my earlier post with regards to payment etc), initially I'm looking for a two minute video to be made - I've got the shots / storyboard / brief and music all sorted to the clients' taste but can only pay in the region of 75 and the film needs to be done by end of May / very early June in an ideal world.

    If anyone who has got back to me above is genuinely interested in taking this up can you please let me know - by PM if you'd rather (also include any samples of previous work if applicable). As mentioned above, I appreciate that this is not mega bucks by any stretch of the imagination but if we can get a good rapport going then I can guarantee that bigger / better and higher budgeted productions are in the pipeline.

    If nobody has got back to me in the next day or two then I'm going to have to crack on myself.

    Thanks again for the contact guys and apologies for not ringing you all personally at this stage - speak soon

    Matt

    P.S. Mark - did call you this afternoon and left a message
