Finally! I got a video gig as shooter for a corporate shoot. 😃
Yes, they actually paid me.
And the first thing I did after getting my pay was go to the mall and get myself a Boya wired lavalier microphone BY-M1.
Because I didn’t have a proper microphone yet and I almost didn’t get the job because of it. Really.
The director’s requirements for the video shooter were simple:
- have own video camera
- have own tripod
- have own wired lavalier microphone
I didn’t have a wired lav mic yet.
Fortunately, a classmate of mine was willing to lend me his wireless lav mic.
After much discussion with our teacher (who was helping the director find a video shooter, and was reluctant and concerned that the only mic available was wireless), our teacher decided that both my classmate and I would do the shoot.
And that was how I got my first video gig.
I later did a little Behind The Scenes video to thank the director and my fellow videographer.
