On the other hand, you don’t want to be left with the short end of the stick when it comes to negotiating your rate and services. Here are a few questions to have answered before walking into any project or shoot.

Properly serving your clients is an aspect of the freelance filmmaking business that is constantly overlooked. I am sharing my system and mentality of how I believe client-servanthood should be approached. Client-servanthood is the fancy way of saying customer service. When you think about all “customer service” based industries, you’ll notice a pattern in all of them. They all survive solely on the experience of their customers. This being the case for most businesses, it only makes sense to provide that same business mentality to your business.

Getting your drone pilot’s license is absolutely essential to becoming a professional drone pilot. Not only for educational purpose, but also because it’s required by the F.A.A. On this episode, my friend James Tobon joins us to discuss a little further as to how the FAA upholds their regulations. James is a professional drone pilot and instructor. He opened his drone school back in March and has helped many aspiring drone pilots obtain their licenses since then.

We’re back from a week of travels and sharing some insight we’ve learned along the way on current collaborative projects. Discovering how we need to structure stories to make sense. A linear and cohesive story is important so that the audience can understand the story and what is going on and when it’s going on.

I think most of us can agree that we love to travel. As filmmakers we always want to capture our traveling and make a cool video out of it. In doing so, however, sometimes that means having that sense that you’re still working and not fully enjoying your vacation. We’re discussing traveling videos and how we shoot them. What to look for and how to tell that story.


Ariel’s “July 4th” Travel Video


Storytelling in Travel Videos

Here’s a video created for “What is a Man?” ministry on a trip to Grand Cayman. You can see the direction taken with regards to storytelling in the initial shots as the video begins. I choose to display the journey before the main event and also on the closing shoots of the sunset. These shots gave the video a storytelling aspect of beginning and ending. Placing random shots in a video would basically keep your viewers wondering “why am I watching this?”. You want to take them on a journey. This applies to basically all films and videos.
