Vinny talks about his career in cinematography, how he managed to get his name out when he started, sheds light onto key ingredients of good camera work, his work ethics and also draws a detailed picture of what he’s up to next.
His enthusiasm and high standards of quality reflect in his work and are important components of his success.
Vinny, you own a successful video production company. When did you found the company and what is the field you specialize in?
Imperial Production was founded by myself and Ivan Narez and was started in 2005. […]
What is your advice to somebody who wants to choose a career in videography? Do they need to attend a school and have a degree in the field to get good jobs? How does one get a good videographer?
I don’t think you need to attend school to make a career in videography. Going to school can’t teach you creativity. The bottom line is if you really love it and have a passion for anything it will show in your work.
To make a career out of it you need to be a hustler and let people know who you are. You need to make people pay attention to you. Just like anything else in life, there are plenty of talented people out there but if you sit and don’t share your talent for the world to see your not going to go anywhere.
Just keep it moving and make people pay attention to what you’re doing and you will stay busy. […]
