Well, I thought i'd ask this question as i'm considering becoming freelance myself, a year after graduating. I'd love to hear how you guys all started out, why you started out, and the direction you are aiming for...? I'll start: I am an artist, originally studied Fine Art, but I wanted to experiment with Video. It became my tool. As i've experimented with a fair bit of photography, Video seemed to be a natural progression. I feel comfortable using lens based mediums. Now i'm degree qualified, confident with FCP, and i've had a good amount of experience with 3CCD cameras and HD, i'm considering turning it into a profession. Although I adore shooting, and being out in the field with the cameras, I feel more comfortable in the edit suite. I'd love to hear how you guys did it, with maybe some advice for anyone else in the same boat as me? Thanks in advance, Rich.
