Hello to VideoUniversity Readers

I wanted to say hello and introduce myself to the many VideoUniversity® readers.

I am Anthony Burokas and I’ve been producing event and corporate video for over 20 years. I have also spent the last seven years writing for a magazine many of you may know about called EventDV Magazine. Now, InfoToday did shutter EventDV magazine with the December 2011 issue, so don’t go looking to sign up and get your free copy. 🙂 That ended about the same time as Videography and DV Magazine merged into one new publication. So there’s a lot of activity going on with regards to reporting the news in this industry.

I have a long history of event videography- starting with two piece VHS and 3/4 U-matic systems. I know, with that sentence, I got a few readers to laugh, and completely befuddled many people who are new to this industry and raised in an era of solid-state media, HD codecs, and online delivery. Well, I am also a vDSLR owner and still own some HDV gear as well. I could go on and on about the formats and gear that I’ve used but I won’t say much more than I’ve seen & used a lot.

Every company makes some nice gear and I’m not really partial to any of it. I’ve reviewed lots of cameras, recorders & other gear for Event DV and I look forward to doing the same in the future. I also have some salient business advice on what works and what doesn’t work for the solo producer and the small shop. Some of it I’ve experienced myself, some of it I’ve seen others go through.

I look forward to writing for you in the weeks and months ahead and, even more so, I look forward to the discussion online. Like my own TechThoughts blog, each article here allows for comments. I welcome them and I’ll be here to discuss anything in the article once it gets posted. So, unlike the printed magazine, we can have a dialog after the article”“ and I think that’s a great thing.

I’d love to hear from you. You can comment below, suggest topics, or just say hi. If you want to reach me directly”“ you can e-mail me: Vid Pro at IEBA dot com.
