It’s an idea that’s sat in the back of your mind for possibly years by now: traveling the world and doing what you love by creating films. How can it become a reality?
Peter Hutchinson and Toby Hart of Outsight Creations are two U.K.-based filmmakers who travel the world to make videos for their clients. As they explain in this quick five-step guide for Wex Photo Video, everyone has to start somewhere in the travel video business.
If you’re trying to get off the ground doing this kind of work, your first goals are going to be gathering up all the resources already available to you and creating a teaser film on your own expense. It’s the only way you can expect anyone else wanting to give you money for your services; they need to see a final product of what you’re capable of. After you pick up that first client, business can start to snowball if you play it right with networking and doing solid, professional work.
