Welcome to the Palmetto Films blog! The goal I have for this part of the company is to share new ideas and developments in the world of videography, as well as take the audience on a behind-the-scenes tour of our Charleston video projects. Palmetto Films is undoubtedly going to be an exciting journey; I’m just so thrilled to be pursuing what I’m passionate about while being able to serve others in the process. I want to use this first post to tell you a little about my background and my goals for this company.
Video Production Background
My knack for filming and editing became evident to me during my high school years when I was taking a Broadcasting and Media Production class. I slowly learned the basics of creating impressive and professional work through a series of unbelievably humiliating music videos and other related assignments. (I might even share these embarrassing videos from my past if I receive enough requests). I further pursued this talent and was appointed Producer of my high school news show my senior year; I went on to study this field even further by majoring in Communication Studies at Clemson University and working at Clemson Athletics Video Services and Clemson Broadcast Productions.
My videography experience developed further throughout the years; in between college semesters, I worked as a summer camp videographer for a wonderful organization. I absolutely loved my job here. Once, as we were walking together, a fellow staff member asked me why I liked being the videographer. My answer was simple: “I love capturing moments that are never going to happen again.” Catching a teenager’s infectious laugh or a meaningful look between two friends on video would fill me with a sense of incredible happiness; I knew I was surrounded by beautiful moments happening all the time, and being able to preserve those brief points in time is an unbelievable gift.
My enthusiasm for preserving such moments is most likely why I started shooting weddings and why I enjoy this work as much as I do. Being a newlywed myself, I know the energy and giddiness that accompanies one’s wedding day, and I want to preserve as much of those feelings and experiences for others as I can!
Goals for this New Charleston Video Production Service
The mission I have for this company, Palmetto Films, is to use my talent and skills to create products that are both artistic and captivating. As a Christian, I believe that everyone is called to excellence; I, along with everyone else, have been blessed with certain gifts that should not be wasted, but applied to benefit others! We are expected to always perform to the best of our abilities in all circumstances; this is the attitude that I bring to every project I undertake.
