Some people like to work at their desk in an air-conditioned office, sipping on coffee and listening to music on their headphones. Others would rather be spending their day outside in the field, getting dirty, working with their hands, and creating something that will last. Every work environment is unique and has its own set of benefits and inconveniences.
In the video production world, we get to experience a little bit of everything, and that’s one of the best parts of working in this industry. Whether it’s a coffee-in-the-office day or filming in a factory, we get to do it all. Other people’s work environments become ours, and no two days are ever quite the same.
Some days we’re spending hours on the road to get to a remote location and then hauling around heavy film gear in the baking sun (or freezing snow) all day. Other times we’ll be at our desks for eight hours straight, editing away at the previous day’s footage, writing a script for a television documentary episode, or just brainstorming ideas and scheduling shoots.
Our work environment is always changing and keeping us on our toes, and it’s a similar story with the types of projects we work on – we may be shooting a highly artistic, cinematic promotional video one day, then covering a fast-paced live event with no opportunity for second takes the next day, then creating an animated instructional video from scratch, and so much more.
Our end products and the processes used to create them are highly varied, and that means that every day is an adventure. Variety is the spice of life, and there’s plenty of that at Honey Cut Studios.
