My whole life I have been fascinated by the art of videography. The way that you can capture a moment, and manipulate our world is almost magical. Ever since junior year of high school when I received a small flip camera for Christmas at age 18, I have been restless producing videos.
I love making all kinds of videos such as short documentaries, music videos, tutorials, and even some experimental work. I know doing videography for a living would make for a satisfying life and career path.
Videography is growing rapidly, as this medium becomes the strongest form for distributing ideas and promotional advertising due to the powerful audio and visual component. Many companies have taken note of this. Without a video linked to your website, you are behind on the times.
Being a good videographer is more than just filming. One of the best tips I ever heard was that when filming, you must keep the editing process in mind at all times. According to video101course.com, “Film executives understood that once you grasped the concepts of editing, it was much easier to learn camera work…”
One of my favorite videographers is Ash Bolland who is a director of various well known commercials, films, and music videos. One of my favorite music videos by him is Simple Plan’s, “This Song Saved My Life.”
However if it is difficult to get in contact with Mr. Bolland, Eugene, Oregon, has an abundance of local videographers and production companies that focus on everything from business promotion, commercials, music videos and documentaries.
Chambers Productions is a Eugene based company that specializes in the creation of promotional videos for businesses small and large, feature films, and web videos. They have a their own studio, recording room, and a host of other resources to create quality video products.
