Professional networks are everything. As the saying goes, “it’s who you know.” I’ve learned the power of this after a dozen years working in video production. And production in particular, when nearly everyone is freelance or working job-to-job, this can be incredibly valuable. There have been countless times when I’ve been on set and heard someone say “Hey, what are you doing next week? I’m working on [insert job here] and they’re looking for another grip.”
The network we have access to is directly related to our success. Now that we live in the Internet & social age the geographic boundaries are removed.
Storytellers, Filmmakers & Video Production Professionals
From the success of this blog, in a short amount of time, I’ve seen the power of connecting with like minded professionals. It’s been incredible to hear from readers of this blog who share the same passion that I do.
I love seeing other’s work that is inspiring or addresses a problem. I love hearing about new technology, equipment and overcoming adversity. Why? Because if I haven’t already been there, a similar situation will probably arise in the future.
I can be more prepared and produce better work. And I want you to have the same benefits and advantages that I have seen.
It’s who you know.
I know this can be scary and intimidating, so the goal is to foster a community that is beneficial for all. I created two groups, on LinkedIn and Facebook, so all of us can connect with each other. Please join us and contribute to this great community. Invite like minded professionals who you think will also benefit.
Here are the links to join:
See you there!
