I get around OK with a toolbox. As a kid I picked up skills following my dad through the oil fields of Oklahoma and West Texas. My wife Janine is hard to impress but she does think it’s cool when I fix things around the house.
I carry my own film guys with me now. People think that’s a huge expense but with technology like it is these days it’s not. You can film videos and everything with a Canon Mark II and shoot a movie. They’re doing it for next to nothing by comparison. I can do ten videos for a project for the price of one mainstream video in the past.
In an age of social media and content being key it’s important to change the mold where you have $100,000 to $150,000 for one video. I hired some guys that are young just out of college and we used some new far-less-expensive cameras and technology to make videos.
