Sometimes you need a little help. Sometimes more than a little.
Yes, the Internet is a wonderful thing and google can help with your research.
All too often you may get down a rabbit hole - one that is difficult to answer.
Maybe you need some help with your workflow. Is it as efficient as it could be?
Maybe you need help with some of your compression templates. Maybe it's time to switch NLEs.
'm an independent - I have contacts at all the major companies along with hardware manufacturers. I have no problem admitting when I'm over my head - and either bringing in the right people or finding the right people to solve the problem.
I'll consult with you for free to figure out if I can help. If I can't (or I'm too busy), I'll tell you up front, and if I can, suggest someone else.
