Someday I am gonna need an assistant...

Doing videos. They just don't grab and get seen as much as others. I do the whole thing myself, pre, shoot, and post editing, so maybe things might work better if I had an actual cameraman sometime. :)

Me too.  I have to use an iPhone as a monitor to see how I have the pistol camera aimed.  Seems like I spend most of my time making sure the batteries aren't near dead or the memory cards filled up on two cameras, a recorder, and a wireless mic.  Takes longer to get everything set up than it does to actually shoot the pistols. 

Videos are tough.  I'm working on coming up with some new challenges, new camera angles, just to have something different and interesting.  Even I'm getting tired of my own shooting videos. 

I don't need an assistant.  I need a crew and some creative talent/director type to help me break out of the usual way of doing things.  I need some non-engineering artsy-craftsy director type.  And free music.  And editing time.

snakeye, no worries, I don't need someone in a leotard. :) Joe, all I have is one Canon Rebel T-3i camera with the 18-55 kit lens, a cheap tripod I originally bought for the Chrony, and one memory card. Editing is done with the free Microsoft Movie Maker program, at home on this PC. That's it, well, that and my ugly face and motor mouth! :D
