In response to Jean-Luc Picard's post saying this is an empty forum, here's my story.

I do videos. My so called “talent” seems to be for pointing a camera (video or still) in the right direction at the right time and in editing what I've shot. I don't really consider it a talent, but I've been told by others that it is.

I'm currently trying to start a very small company editing videos for people that want more of a personal video. Of stuff like their pets or homestead, fancy car, whatever. Heck, I even made one for a farmer I know about his wheat harvest last year. I also got to make a video for a group that sends missionaries to Haiti and keeps a medical center open there year round. Mostly I do montage type videos, but sometimes I do other types of videos.

I've posted 2 videos on youtube that you can watch if you want. Here's a link for the short (30 second) one I did for the volunteer fire department I'm on. It's kind of a promotional video, but the local tv station won't air it, so it really hasn't promoted anything.

The second video should show up on the right side of the youtube page. It's called “Controlled burn” and is 5:37 long.

The rest of my videos aren't posted anywhere, so I can't really show them off. I know the people I made them for are happy with them, and that's what counts.

I like them!  They look more real than most video you see today because they actually have camera shake. 

Oh, the site that was :(

Those were 2 of the first videos I did. I only had Windows Movie Maker to work with at that time. So I couldn't get around the shake (caused by one of the medications I have to take).

I now use Cyberlink PowerDirector 7 for all my editing. It has a little button to click that takes the shake out of my video.
