Crew Call

Downbeach is seeking experienced videographers. Our 2010 wedding season is almost full and 2011 is now booking. If you're a seasoned shooter looking to pick up some extra bucks this may be good opportunity for you. I'd like to book multiple weddings on a weekend but need some talented people. You shoot, I edit and that's all there is to it.

Our weddings are concentrated around NJ, NY and PA but really we go anywhere.

Must shoot in HD!

Email me at jchrisrodgers@hotmail.com for more information.

Edit, Editing, Edited

I put every computer through the ringer attempting to pull every ounce of power. Overlapping projects are pretty much a daily occurrence. Today I'm editing one wedding, rendering another, working on a fun project and outlining a cool montage.

Downbeach Design also partnered up with an Australian Company to complete edits for them. Those will be rolling out soon and I'm happy to help.

So if you're reading this and are a videographer with a backlog or just someone with some raw footage I'm available and love to edit. It may be my favorite part of the whole process.

Email me for rates.

Autism Run-Walk in Sea Isle

My wife and I had the pleasure of taking part in the Autism Run-Walk held today in Sea Isle City. Yesterday was the polar plunge but somehow I was missed that. Karen works with Autistic Children as a Speech Therapist. Here are a couple shots.

You can see some more on my flickr site.

Edwin B Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

There's not much to do around here in the Wintertime. While everyone waits for it to get warm I like to check out some of my favorite places without the crowds, such as the casinos and restaurants. One of my favorite places is the Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife Refuge. It's never crowded and there is some great hiking and birdwatching. My favorite aspect is the 8 mile drive out onto the water. There's bald eagles and hawks along with more common cranes and gulls. I made it out there on Thursday and snapped a couple shots.

Anyone Can Make News

I found this pretty amusing. (Minor language)

Gerad's Florist & Decorator

If you are getting married down the shore or in and around Atlantic County check out Gerad's Florist, located in Pleasantville. Gerad and Eileen are really true artists and create some really unique pieces for weddings and casino events. I believe that Florists could be the most creatively demanding job in the wedding business.

I designed their website a few years back.
