What is ProVideoAdvisor?

Welcome to ProVideoAdvisor!

Here you will find tips, tricks, cool gadgets and all sorts of other information to help you make your videos look professional even if you’re…well…not.

I have to say that this is my first blog posting…EVER!

Well, I had a blog a number of years ago but I don’t even think it lasted a month before I gave up on it.  At the time I was finding it to be just too much work and I didn’t really have a clear direction as to what I even wanted to accomplish by having a blog.  This time around it’s going to be very different!

FrederI can’t wait to share with you some tips and tricks that I have discovered throughout my career as a professional actor, voice over artist, director, producer, camera operator, and editor.

And yes, I do do all those things.

See, when I started out in this business I wanted to be the next Tom Cruise.  But that was going to be difficult as I don’t in any way shape or form look anything like him.  Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio?  Ryan Reynolds?  Still no?  How about Rick Moranis?  Sure…let’s go with Rick Moranis.  Guess we can kiss goodbye all the leading man roles.  Darn it.  But I digress….

Thing is, I love this business and as I was finding that I was spending so much time doing jobs I didn’t love to spend such a short period of time doing a job I did love (auditioning, acting)  I decided I wanted to find another way into this business.

I had so many friends doing work behind the scenes that I ended up starting there.  I worked as a talent agents assistant, then became a talent agent, then casting directors assistant, then a camera operator, then an editor, then back to acting and then became an Actor/Director.

The thing is I have acted in short films including ‘gone.‘, a film I produced and co-starred in with Cory Monteith, directed music videos and produced and directed Television shows.

And of course, like with most of the stuff I am involved with, I am usually the editor of said items as well.

If that wasn’t enough, I have also worked and trained with the guys from Kerner and their 3D Rig.  This photo is of myself and Visual Effects Director of Photography Carl Miller.  I had such a blast working with him a couple years ago blowing up houses.  But again, I digress….

So what does this all mean?

It means that with all my experience from all different sides of the industry I am able to identify what works and what doesn’t work when it comes to creating the best possible video for a project.  Have I said I love what I do? I haven’t?  Ok, well, just so you know I LOVE what I do 🙂

There are so many things that you can do to make your videos professional even if your version of a camera is well…just an iPhone.

I say this because this is what ProVideoAdvisor is all about.

Getting the best possible results from your photos or videos even if you are just an amateur with an iPhone or other similar device.  Because the truth is you can make some amazing videos with even the cheapest equipment if you know the basics of what will make a video work and the basics of what won’t make a video work.

I can’t wait to help you on your journey to make better videos!  If you have any specific questions you would like to ask me be sure to email me at info@ProVideoAdvisor.com and I’ll be sure to address it in one of my upcoming blog posts.

Thank you so much for reading this and I hope that you will gain some great knowledge along the way on how to make your videos better!
