A Recap of a Successful Year in Freelance Video Editing

Wow, what a year it's been for my freelance video editing business! Time sure does fly when you're having fun, and boy have I had a blast this past year working with some amazing clients like ISG, William Sarris Productions, and The Barnum Museum. Each project has been a blast and I've learned so much along the way. Here's to an even better year ahead!

One of my favorite projects was the opportunity to team up with my old coworker and friend, William Sarris Productions on a project with ISG. We were able to shoot live footage of one of their events, and it was a great experience to work with a friend and colleague. Here is some of the footage we captured!"

I am proud to have contributed to ISG's video-on-demand site as an editor for their live events. During my time with them, I consistently provided precise edits and quick turnaround times, which were greatly appreciated by the team. It has been a privilege to work with such a professional and reliable organization.

Another highlight was traveling with Will to shoot interviews for the Wireless History Foundation. We went to San Francisco, Kansas, Denver, and DC to talk to some of the biggest names in the wireless industry.

It was so cool to meet people like Dan Hesse (who did some amazing work at AT&T Wireless and Sprint) and Neera Singh (co-founder of LCC International, a top wireless engineering firm). I got to edit the induction videos for both of them, which was a great learning experience. Take a look at the videos I edited from the footage we shot!

We also got to have some fun and see some awesome places along the way, like shopping with Neera Singh in Vail, CO and hearing about Dan Hesse's friendship with Neil Young!

We also continued our work with the Barnum Museum and its awesome YouTube channel. I help shoot, edit, and upload pretty cool content like the Emmy Nominated "Showman's Shorts!"

And it all paid off - we reached over 2.3K subscribers on the channel and started a super cool podcast called "Becoming Barnum".

"Becoming Barnum" is all about the life of P.T. Barnum. We used a collection of 750-page letters he wrote during his travels in Europe in the 1840s to explore his life as a husband, dad, and businessman. Plus, we looked at his mentorship of the famous child actor-entertainer General Tom Thumb. It's a deep dive into the world of 19th century show business and gives a glimpse into the mind of the man behind the legend.

Aside from the podcast, I also contributed to the Museum's YouTube channel by editing and designing audio for their videos. It's been amazing to be a part of the Museum's digital presence and help them share their incredible collection of artifacts and stories.

I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Abide Videography owned by my friend and former colleague Luke Chase, some cool projects like weddings and local shoots. As a drone photographer, I was able to bring a unique perspective to the footage and it was well received.

All in all, it's been a great experience working with Abide and I'm looking forward to what's next.

Will, Luke, and I also had the opportunity to reunite with our old Firelight Media client, GE, this year. It was a pleasure to work with them again and we are grateful for the opportunity.

It was a pleasure to work with them again as a team and I am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with Will and Luke, who help me improve my skills. Working with familiar colleagues is always enjoyable and beneficial.

As the year comes to a close, I am filled with gratitude for the opportunity to work with such amazing clients. Every project has been a joy and a privilege, and I am so grateful for the trust and support that you have placed in me as a freelance video editor and drone photographer.

Throughout the year, I have worked hard to hone my skills and to provide the highest quality services to my clients. It has been a pleasure to capture dynamic shots with my drone and to create visually stunning videos through my editing abilities. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with such talented and creative individuals, and I am honored to have played a small part in bringing your projects to life.

As we look ahead to the new year, I am filled with excitement and anticipation for what the future holds. I am committed to continuing to provide the best possible services to my clients and to being a reliable and professional partner in your projects. Thank you again for your trust and support. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you and I look forward to many more years of collaboration.
