Status: New Setup

Finally got my iMac! Well, actually I got it about a month ago…I’m so glad to finally join the Mac world – it just makes editing video so much easier. I’ve had a busy couple of weeks working on video projects and it’s a great learning experience. For awhile there, I was just immersed in the editing process. I don’t know if it was the topic or the process, but I feel so at home when I’m putting the video all together into something cohesive. However, lessons abound (which is always good) and I’m finding that I need to get more equipment soon – nothing with a huge price tag, but I definitely need to start bringing in paying opportunities and setting up a menu of services so I can get that equipment.

So far, my feature writing and web editing services have been giving the most immediate payoffs and I’d like to see if I can take that further. I’ve also been consulting with some small biz owners to advise them on Social Media services: How to choose the best outlet, Joining the Conversation and so forth.

This week was awesome, though! I spoke with a friend and Filmmaker/Photographer who invited me to a Women in Film and Video event on Final Cut Pro Workflow – it was really informative! I’ve worked with FCP before on the job and always wanted to use it more efficiently, so I was glad to be among people who used it often and humorous Instructors who didn’t speak down to the audience. I also ran into an old friend, which was great!

Anyway, I’m plugging away with the business and having fun with it. My next big purchase is Final Cut Express 4 and my next big project…make my own commercial! I know, fun right?! I think it’d be great to have on my portfolio and I thank the kind Margie who commented on my blog last week and planted the idea seed. Thank you Margie!
