Welcome to the Video Creator Spotlight of the month!
This series of interviews highlights video creators and their work. I’ve personally learned most of what I know how to do by talking to other people and learning from them. The Video Creator Spotlight is my way of sharing other people’s stories with you in hopes that they inspire you to make better videos. If you or someone you know would like to be featured in the Video Creator Spotlight, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Who is Caleb Negassa?
I’m a filmmaker that enjoys telling stories by collaborating with various artist to help bring amazing stories to the screen.
How did you get interested in video creation?
I first got interested in film and video as a child. I always wondered how they made everything look so good and fascinating on TV. I used to wish that I lived in the film world that I saw instead of the one I was in. That inspired me to figure out what film and video was all about so I started making my own films. It wan’t nearly as great so when I got to high school, I enrolled in a television class to learn more about it. From there, everything was history. I was would spend everyday after school coming up with projects or completing projects I started. I created a film club with a couple friends and started producing shorts that got me on the track I am now. In high school I learned how to make documentaries which I won a student Emmy for and when I got to high school I learned how to make films. So I still have a passion for documentary filmmaking and narrative production.
What is your favorite part about video making?
Do you have a video that I can share on the blog?
What has it been like navigating the professional video world?
Give our readers one tip for making better videos.
Find out who inspires you in film making or whoever is your favorite person at doing what they do. Find out why they are good at what they do and learn what it is you, yourself, not what everybody else says, that you like about that person. Then figure out how to better do what they did. Film or video production is like building a skyscraper. You have your architects, electricians, plumbers, engineers, etc, similarly in Film and TV you have your producer, DP’s, PD’s, Editors, Directors, etc. By becoming someone skilled in one fashion of work, others out there will want to work with you. Then together you make something that will no doubt be the best and first of it’s kind
