Growing up, with endless hours to play and goof around, one of the things I loved most was making videos with friends. Whether we were lip syncing to Michael Jackson or making projects for school, I loved going back and watching what we were able to create. Things nobody ever got to watch because it was a different time before internet, all things digital, and Youtube.
As a grown adult, I’ve always dreamt about making videos in my spare time. The problem now, of course, is the lack of spare time and the lack of friends who have spare time.
When I was a college student, my friends and I would make videos of us snowboarding around the Northwest and skateboarding around campus. And it’s really what led me down the path to where I am today. Our videos were noticed by a small local snowboard manufacturer, and we started building websites to showcase our photos and videos, creating content, and eventually working our way up to learn more about eCommerce.
I’ve been thinking about what to do with stuff that sits and doesn’t get used much. That includes my Canon T1i Digital SLR camera and my Skylab Gimbal (the gimbal is designed to work with the iPhone 7 and 8. Not the Plus sized phones, unfortunately).
If you, or maybe your child, has shown an interest in videography and photography, hit me up on my Instagram (@jin411) and direct message me. I don’t expect too many people to respond to this, but my hope is that it will inspire someone.
