Thanks for your message Leo
Many of these concerns are already in my thoughts.
Currently my business involves videography projects for companies with a strong focus on marketing
. I have a background in web design and have designed quite a few blogs for people. Granted, none of that guarantees success, but with the right positioning and high quality videos I believe it can be pretty successful.
I have a company or two (with a similar target audience to mine) who are willing to collaborate, but I’ll only be able to confirm that closer to the time.
I am very aware of the time it takes to produce quality content, but the more you make, the easier it gets. Especially if it’s part of the same series(over time you build up templates and project
files where you just replace new footage and keep the layout of an “episode”) currently all my work is for different projects so we start from scratch every time.
I will not be going alone as that makes everything more difficult, not just sailing, filming solo is also not the easiest thing and the kind of person I am, I need to experience things with other people.
I also sell stock videos, and If I’m in the mindset of filming every day I will be able to capture amazing things which can potentially earn money
All in all, nothing is guaranteed in life, there is no way for me to completely plan how to make money granted all the variables, but if I budget
correctly and start planning early I think I can even start a video series before sailing documenting the planning stages, just to test the waters.
Either way, if it all fails I can always go back to my day job freelancing in the film industry, shoot a movie
and get back out there (but I don’t want to do this)
