Barrett Closing Down
Well, I'm in a weird position right now. Barrett is closing down and moving all of their employees to Brainerd, Minnesota where InterMedia Outdoors (IMO) is located. I'm just freelancing right now, so I don't know if I'm going to still have a job. I'm kind of liking the freelancing gig and have found out about a lot of other companies that hire freelance videographers, so I'm sure there's still a lot of work out there for me if Barrett doesn't work out. I guess there might still be a full time job open at IMO, but they might want me to be in Minnesota. Who knows? I've been thinking more about starting up my own show. I have all of the equipment and have learned how things run at Barrett, so I don't think it's out of my realm. I also want to fly my octocopter a lot and start contracting that. Lots of companies are starting to use them, so the demand is rising and the money is great. What do I do? I'm young and can gamble, so maybe I should just keep working on my own thing. If I get tied down to a full time job then I wont have time to work on my own stuff, I wont make as much money, and its hard for any of the videographers to hold a good relationship with their loved ones. The full time job does have benefits, it's consistent work/pay check, and great experienced, so it would be hard to turn that down. Oh, the choices in life! Any comments or suggestions are welcome.
