Hello, I'm a videographer for the navy and have been taught a lot of the lessons that you guys present or at least similar ideas. I've also had the opportunity to learn from civilian professionals and much of what they have to say is all similar as far as how to produce good video news stories. What everyone is pretty vague on is interacting with people. I am not at all a people person, and the general response to this is I'm in the wrong business. However, I would like to learn to be more relaxed, confident and professional around people. Mostly so I can overcome the fear of just getting out there and finding the stories and getting people to be comfortable around me and me around them. Is there any advice you can give other than "just do it", which is pretty much what I've been told. It seems that everything in this business is centered on people, not just the people who's story you're telling but also your ability to make connections and sell yourself. A person with strong social skills would have a definate advantage. Even if I learn to shoot and edit perfectly, I feel like my real sucess depends on how well I can interact with people. Any good books or info you can recommend? Also, would you consider offering a video course that specifically addresses this issue for those of us who enjoy telling stories with pictures, but might not be the best with people? Thanks for your time.
