"Most people think Video Production is a glamorous business leading to fun gigs with celebrities every day." -Patty Mooney
As video gear gets cheaper every year, the video production industry continues to get more and more competitive as more young entrepreneurs do work in the field.
Many who join the industry have the perception that it will be a "party every day" with celebrities, award shows, flashy and adventurous gigs. This, however, does not take into account much of the reality.
Working in the film industry means working 10 hour days, continually lifting, setting up, hauling and tearing down equipment and working multiple positions. I mean knowing who you need to know, and knowing who they know.
At the same time, however, video and film production is one of the most creative industries and communities to be a part of, and one where hard work always pays off.
