I may have cracked a few lenses but have broke more hearts than boards. IPTP thingies are anywhere from $2000 to $200 depending on who you go with. with me 4 people can split cost of IPTP. People can get in for very little if in a group of four. Most operate that way. The good thing is it is so intense and also videod that you will literally get months and months worth of training from one. They are designed to people very good very quickly. It really is a new way to look at training
The equipment is fairly expensive. When I lived in Tampa, the local cable system had 'public access' cable where you learn how to run the equipment and basically make your own program. I wonder if you could weasel studio and equipment time to record a semi-decent quality video?
I have several friends who made videos with Panther and TRS and they get all the rights yet the videos are done at no expense to you. Good PR bad business for you in other ways though. You can make one digitalnd mix it on your computer.
Have you checked with students or other instructors to see if they have this kind of experience? Heh. I have a friend in film school at USC, but I'm pretty sure he's into feature films and not martial arts technique videos I'm trying to convince him to let me be fight coordinator on any film he does
If my instructor was still in the U.S.A.F., he could probably whip up lots of multimedia stuff, considering that's what he did while in the service.
Man...I was talking with Vu last night and he just continued to mention the same things....promote, promote, promote. In essence this is why I am interested in better quality (professional) videos. The ones I have done have great content but lack in quality. None the less I have gotten positive feedback on them. I have checked with some people. There is a guy doing an internship for media stuff and he could do it all as a project for his certification in this stuff (media stuff) Vu also stated he is looking to relocate and open a huge JKD academy. Sounds great to me. This would be a departure from how he teaches now
use my personal e-mail and send me demographics of the area. Include correctional facilities, Federal offices, municipal law enforcement any military bases and number and types of martial arts schools, growth rates for last 5 years and projections. If it looks good he will check it out He has asked a few of us to do this for him and assist with the development of it in this way. he reported to me that it was a two year program. What do ya think?????
I printed out a mess o' demographics for the county. I have to extract the pertinent information from it, as it is rather long. If the decision to locate a school is based solely on demographics, I'm in deep doo-doo. We'll see.
I've still got to look up military installations and law enforcement stuff. The big installations are Cape Canaveral Air Station and Patrick AFB. Kennedy Space Center is here as well. I'll also point out proximity to the JKD instructor in Orlando.
