Hey guys I was wondering if there are any wakeboard video companies located in Orlando, FL or Tampa, FL and if you had the names that would be awesome. Thanks

most are independent contractors and freelancers.

Do you have any websites or contact info for any of them?

There is no one company out here that shoots wake. Like Joe says all independent video makers. With that being said

What are you looking for?

Thanks a lot Brinks, I just got my AS degree in Digital Media Production and am really interested in wakeboarding videos and was just looking for people that I could possibly help out and get some experience myself.

if you're wanting to make wake vids as your source of income, i hope you have plans for a 2nd and/or 3rd job.

Where did you go to school? Do you have any of your own camera gear and what kind? Your best bet is just to go up to Owc and shoot, shoot and shoot some more. Lots of practice and get a vimeo account to start posting videos.

Went to school at Valencia. I have a Canon GL2 and final cut pro and a nikon D80 for stills. Working on getting a grant right now to be able to afford a Panasonic HVX200 and some new lens for the camera. Actually starting up my own business for video/photo stuff.

Maybe even a 4th job if you plan to buy gear!

Chariie,

I wouldn't let those comments defer you from the wake industry. There is a larger than perceived group of individuals working in the industry publishing media full time.

It just takes dedication, and making a name for yourself.

I would follow up on Brink's links and also consider working with local shops in your area for free to build a resume.

good luck

Charlie,
I am currently working on a documentary on the history of towed watersports. I am local and I do need help on occasion. I do not have a budget but you can get some great experience. I am shooting the project in HD. This project is aimed at national distribution on The Public Broadcasting System starting in second quarter of 2010. If you are interested you can contact me at 386.717.2777 or my office email is mrentnem@daytonastate.edu.

Mike
