Video creation, or film-making, is less about your camera and more about the editing side. The video editing is really what makes you or breaks you as a videographer. Nowadays, the new iPhones shoot video in 4K and a guy can get a cheap tripod and start shooting really great videos with the camera on their phone. But I now see the bulk of your time is really spent in a shoe box of a room on a laptop or PC, editing all the video you have down to something people want to see.
Just a side note, I’ll give you a link to the video editing software I use just in case you want to give video editing a try and want to get something easy-to-use/ easy-to-learn. Use this link here called movavi.
The hours that go into a 30 sec commercial is staggering, 20 to 40 hours, sometimes more, depending on what is needed. This does not include the shoot time or sketching up a set outline (which really does not take that long) or a voice-over outline and recording which, in a controlled environment, takes only about an hour. It does add up. But done right, it is so worth it. Yes, 20 to 40 hours sometimes just sitting in front of a computer editing, animating, adding sound effects, music, knowing you will have to revise it the second your customer has a chance to see it…is a little disheartening. But video work is not for the weak.
