IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR EXPERIENCE DOING LOW LEVEL VIDEOGRAPHY, CLOSE TO SANDRINGHAM AUCKLAND, GETTING PAID A LITTLE BIT . . .
So I am on the hunt for people who can help me with my video production and youtube videos, developing these concepts I’ve got. Just paying them to come in when I need help, just getting them in on my terms, and paying them, and then hoping things can loosen up.
I need to pay them something, but I am also hoping they will get in behind what I am doing, they have to understand that I will pay everyone the same – not much at first – but the person who does the most work and helps out will be the one I’ll be calling back first.
If you want this kind of auckland video production work email email@example.com
But I am really looking for people who want to help me, and i wouldn’t be surprised if I have people working for next to nothing soon, because I am encouraging them to support what I’m doing.
So What’s the deal? Just say, look, I’m giving you $40, I need you for at least 2 hours, maybe 3, just please come and help. Do extra, takeaway homework, you’ll be the one asked back. Maybe we can work it out so I can slip you $50-100 to do a lot of the editing work.
with two $40 pods I should be able to produce 2 x 2 minute videos every week. But I could make it 3 or 4, depending on who was around and wanted to rock, what we did together, what the vibe was.
HERE’S MY STAR NOW MESSAGES:
I was just browsing star now for local people who work both behind and in front of the camera, who have skills and want to develop experience.
I run a successful promotions company, but long term I am developing my youtube channel with a combination of music videos, kids videos, comedy, vlogs, etc. it’s just a hobby for now but I would like to take it somewhere, so I am looking for more people I can work with to get more productive and make better content.
I am more of a front of camera person, and I can tell big gaps in my technical knowledge is letting me down.
It wouldn’t be very regularly and I cant pay a lot, but I will pay something.
Just finding out who might be interested. Thanks!
So yeah I do a range of stuff, I’ve had this one man band approach and worked with lots of keen models, doing the whole thing myself – mainly music videos at this point, but ive done plenty of skits, road movies, vlogs – organising, performing, shooting, editing, the works. needless to say, because I do that all myself I spread myself pretty thin and the effect is pretty cheap, and I accept I am selling myself short.
As I said I am not that technical, and mainly focused on my performance, so that aspect of my videos is suffering.
I thought it would be great to find technically experienced people who are also interested in jumping in front of the camera with me, so I can get the most out of it and keep my super streamlined approach running.
This is how I compete, by being small, fast, and agile.
I run a successful promotions business already we do printing and cd’s and dvd’s it goes great and I don’t have to attend to it full time.
I am also a chilldrens party entertainer, I dress up as a pirate, so there is a part of this that is already working as a business, it’s just my video production is not a professional operation right now, it is still my hobby but I am prepared to invest into it because I want to take it somewhere.
I would like to think if I could build a solid team with my previous business experience I could probably make this into a business opportunity also, but that is long term.
I would probably need help for a few hours once or twice a month. I will need to have several options just so we can all be flexible, im not relying on just you so youve got some freedom if you cant make it when I need a hand, and I can have a little network going.
So yes one response so far from some teenage girl – it’s as I’ve said before, we need to find jobs to put them into to begin their development. I am encouraged by bonnie, knowing that if I can get the girl through a few sessions with me, then they will find out what I’m about and worrying about the girls, like with bonnie, won’t be so much of an issue, worrying about whether they can handle themselves.
Now have had another girl interested – so we definitely have to start aligning what we want to do with where we can bring these girls on board.
We can put drunksploitation up there. RC1 episode, pirate stuff we definitely recognise.
The push to have our pirate story, our pirate dvd locked as a basis for our show is a business milestone, it means we can make a show we can take on the road.
And very clear guides pop into place here. I said I’d pay 2 people say, starting on $40 for 2-3 hours work helping me to make 2 x 2 minute videos.
$160 over 2 sessions of 3 or 4 hours for me, and that could create 8 minutes of footage for the weekly show. Well I’m trying to work with the concept, within the confines. Maybe a 5 minute show every fortnight? No you’re constraining the wrong parameters. Because we can’t go into that kind of production right now.
The fact is we would work through our stuff, right through to business stuff, we’re working the pirate stuff, we have our show, and pushing through out the other side to what else we can offer.
– pirate party / show
– Girls appearance
– event management
– corporate video
– wedding video
We can go on adding stuff to the mix, we can crowdfund and all the rest, but what’s the conclusion its heading to?
Well me pulling in $500 a gig doing either pirate shows or DJ shows. and doing 3-4 gigs a week.
In order to do that we may have to really get down with these girls and tell them how it is if they want to breakthrough which means doing the work. From the work, the opportunities will arise.
Think of milford market day, lots of fairies coming down, lots of filming, a tight little ad for milford and pirates and whatever created.
Opportunities being worked.
But the resolution reached here is that there are so many possibilities, it’s mind boggling to orientate ourselves to that. Yes, use the dreams, pitch specific dreams to lure you forward because those are lures that work, even if it is to trick yourself into something meaningful.
You can have a plan like basically falling away from gigs to focus more on the cohort, because that’s a plan for now. Plans are for doing. Dreams are for focusing plans.
We’ve had some nice dreams and seen what they look like, we recognise the pattern, we can choose our path forward, we just need to make the right choices traced back to needs we truly recognise are legitimate. Money is not really a legitimate goal in of itself.
A major issue is that we are backlogged with so many videos to edit, it just makes me think we need to instigate our coaching regime weekly do get that caught up, and we will be blasting through because we know our financial goals are tight, to have that same hold suddenly erupt in video, that would be great.
But before we go in deep on auckland video production let’s look at what else there is to do.
The landing page for the cohort ads and links is going to be the next thing. We’ll start with some copy. Then design it up. Do we really think we’ll go forward? Now that we’re recruiting elsewhere? Well at some stage, of course.
We’ll give our interns interns.
We need to be thinking about how we’ll be bringing people on board moving forward.
Drunksploitation, Pirate videos, Editing – editing has to be seen as a big part of this now. The more I shoot, the more I fall behind.
Which means I can ask them to do the bees straight away. I could ask Michelle to edit the first bee video, the dnb bee girls. Then followed by the bonnie skits, I mean seriously that’s 20 hours of editing, 2 weeks going hard. Easily worth $500.
We could get help for NENB. Again, $80, 2 x $40 but this is also a great tester, because it’s so easy. But if we found someone with a good camera or who was into hipster emo cinematic stylistics, that’d be great, we would also of course do Flatmates. A really good camera person. Put aside $100. $500 for bees and bonnie. And then we come to all the gig footage. What we’re saying is though it’s a big job if we break $600 for that too then what we’re saying is we could jump forward swiftly with cash, I can see that now.
By the time we were doing drunksploitation, which could be any time because we’re rolling in with tanks, I’m not doing gigs, I can spend on this.
Then pirates and lord perhaps even RC1 we would be way beyond our video requirements. But the girls would need more, and so on we ride!!
