Video Editing Autodidact

I throw the word Autodidact around a lot – it was one of the SAT Hit List words back in senior year of high school that really stuck with me but not a lot of people know what it means.

Basically, an autodidact is someone that learns on their own. They are a self-educator.

While I haven’t been learning Video Production and Editing all by myself, a large portion of it has been trial and error with our editing platform with reviews from our very patient video consultant, Russ Jenisch, and his many friends that he pulls in to help us learn.

Last year, my company made the decision to bring as much video production in house as possible. They committed to our newly formed video department by purchasing two very nice HD cameras, professional lighting set ups and hiring Russ. While Russ claims we’re “still learning to crawl” in terms of producing and editing professional videos, our knowledge and the videos we’ve created have improved by leaps and bounds.

This past year, I’ve helped the team tackle our largest assignment to-date, four HR recruitment videos and added a little humor into our corporate video mix with a special Halloween greeting capturing what happens when Psycho Salespeople snap and go after a sales engineer. We also offered our video services to the MBA Business Plan competitors at our annual Spirit of Enterprise competition.

I was the lead videographer on all of these projects and the primary editor on two of the recruitment videos, the Halloween short and the Spirit of Enterprise videos. Check them out below:
