Hi guys, welcome to another blog from the best video production company Durban. Today lets talk careers in video. My focus will be in Kzn. I will also talk about my own experience…you do know every experience is different.
I finished my studies at DUT Natal in the year 1999.
Below is a project I worked on in my final year at Video Technology. I have pulled the video off Youtube, please watch and let me know what you think.
It was great fun working on it. It was filmed over a period of about 6 weeks. How it exactly came about….my brother was a police reservist and I told him I wanted to film a reservist video for my final production at Video Technology. He told me to call ‘Andrew Mills’, Andrew at the time was also a reservist with Pinetown SAP . I called Andrew and got a very enthusiastic “Yes, lets do this” As a student I didnt expect such an enthusiastic response. We were normally told no or to call back another time so I was amazed this was where we were at.
To start we had a meeting where I told Andrew exactly what it was I was looking at making and how we shoud have the final video. Andrew, in return, gave me a few videos to watch from footage they had filmed over the years.
In part 2 I will talk about the production and the involvement with the SAPS Pinetown to get the production done. Andrew and any individuals taking part in the production needed to sign Release forms which allowed me to film them and use the footage for any purposes to promote the video.
I in turn needed to get permission from Pinetown SAPS to film on their property and in the police cells if need be.
