How To Start Making Your Own Videos - PART #1

So you want to start making your own videos, huh? Good!

A little background, X3 & Madera have been directing and editing videos for over 10 years. Starting out with short films and music videos for artists like Wiz Khalifa, Hardo, and S. Money, X3 had the Pittsburgh music video scene under their belts in 2012-2016. After going on tour with Wiz Khalifa, X3 began working with ShopGLD on their e-commerce jewelry company.

CEO Frank Udavcak began filming back when the RAZR flip phone came out. His brother liked doing stunts so they filmed it on the old Motorola. From there, he grabbed his parent's DVD camcorder (also SONY). After taking out a small loan from a family member, Frank purchased one of the first DSLR's with 1080p video, the Canon T2i.

Using Sony Vegas PRO that was acquired someway, somehow, Frank began his 10 year, 10,000 editing endeavor by diving head first. Skip ahead some years, some Adobe After Effects, some big paying clients at the age of 17, a couple million YouTube views, a few videos on MTV and Cable, and now X3 has been working with small to medium businesses developing professional campaigns.

Because this post could go on forever, a summary will suffice.
