About Dave Dugdale Natalie Brown Shoot Broll - in the frame

I have been making videos primarily for the internet since October 2006. I got my first mini DV tape camcorder in March of 2003, and then in February 2008 I picked up one of the first HD camcorders, and in March 2010 I got the Canon T2i. I'm totally self taught when it comes to video. I went to the University of Miami in Florida and my background is in audio engineering.

First SLR Camera

This picture of me below is from my cruise ship days before my hair turned grey. My hair starting going grey at age 16. I used to run sound for the production shows on ships like the SS Norway or the Royal Viking Star. I had a total blast working on the cruise ships after I finished up at University of Miami.

It was a really nice camera (Minolta XG1) and created some nice DOF, but I had no idea how to use it. It got stolen one night when I left it in the sound booth on the SS Norway. As you can see I didn't know how to focus on a mirror back then.

I Used to be an Audio Guy

I was an audio guy for a long time. I used to design sound systems for airports, arenas, football stadiums, concert hall all over the United States. Here I am testing out a system at the sound booth for an arena I designed.
