@MNS1974

Producers stand to make the real big bucks If you’re serious about making money from moving image then producing is where you need to be. The rewards can be enormous, but you can end up carrying all the risk too.

HOW TO MAKE MONEY FROM MOVING IMAGE: EDITING

@MNS1974 / Just the Cut

Congratulations If you’re reading this then congratulate yourself for being a bit smarter than most. Editing is not sexy. Editing is not cool. Editing won’t get you girls. Editing is unlikely to turn you into a blog superstar. And editing is unlikely to earn you your own signature series endorsement deal. Editing, however, will pay the bills.

UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES: THE PHRASE THAT MEANS NOTHING & EVERYTHING

@MNS1974

There’s a constant and nagging thread that runs through the back catalogue of production I’ve been lucky enough to work on. At every turn I’m frustrated about something, might be a lack of budget, it might be a lack of talent, it might be an idiotic client, or it might be just something as simple as a lack of time.
