As a solo creative, i shoot most of my own footage but there are projects where I act more as producer/director and will send others to do the shooting. I also have several clients that I just edit for, and two clients that I just have me do audio mastering/colour grading.

I've been a freelance shooter/editor for almost 30 years but I've occasionally worked full-time for production companies and I've maybe spent four years out of those almost 30 just editing.

If it's just me, I own a Sony FS100, some Panasonic GH4s, some Canon DSLRs (7D, 70D, 550D), some Go Pros, a DJI Osmo and some video cameras (an ancient Sony FX1, Canon XA10, XA20). I'm primarily capturing ProRes via my various Atomos recorders but otherwise it's AVCHD, MP4, or similar. I also regularly get footage from a Sony EX3 and occasionally from HDV tape.

Being solo, I've had the luxury of editing all of the above exclusively in FCPX since the day it was released.


(For some reason I can't edit my own posts so apologies in advance for the stupid mistakes and bad English that I can't go back and fix)
