Any independant Video business owners here?

I have been running my own business for the last 9 months.
I produce websites and videos for small business.

I was curious to know if there was anyone else here who did similar work.
Maybe bounce some ideas off each other.

I've been running my business almost the same amount of time with 2 of my friends. We're shooting and editing films full-time now and are finally making a living of it...

You can see our work here: www.gotfat.dk

Strange - it should work in every browser... I have tested it in Chrome, Safari and Firefox with no problems...

Anyway - here's our Vimeo-channel: https://vimeo.com/gotfatproductions

We shoot on 60Ds with Røde Mics and/or lavaliers. We edit in FCPX and do some stuff in After Effects as well.

Hampus,
thanks for showing that work. I don't know what was up with my browsers.

It was kind of cool to watch videos in another language. It really made me focus on the shooting and video work. It is very well done.

How long have you been a business for?

I have had my business since 2005. I'm mostly hiring my self out as a DoP, but I do produce a few productions on my own. Most recently making 30 films for the Norwegian Police Academy to be used in their new shooting simulator. I've also produced (and shot) quite a few extreme sport films (some for broadcast).
I accumulated a few cameras over the years and rent those out as well.
Last camera I got was a RED EPIC, so I finally don't have to keep looking for the next camera to get ;-)
My Sony EX-3 have been my workhorse for many years. Still use it
