We first met Renee Ismail when she attended our content strategy workshop last February. A whip smart, affable freelance videographer, she even co-wrote a book called Inspiration For Success with 14 other specialists.
A peek at her social media profiles gives a hint of her admiration for Richard Branson (Renee’s Facebook cover shows a picture of the business mogul kitesurfing with the blazing quote above: “Get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Once you do, you’ll find that you’re living at a more exhilarating pace.”)
Are you a freelancer looking for success stories to reignite your passion? Look no further. Let’s find out more about Renee, lightning round style!
I started 4 years ago!
The ability to operate the camera and edit videos. Additional skills will be creating both the storyboard and script.
I was already doing videography… but in the IT Industry. 🙂
Through online courses and self teaching!
For online courses, depending on the tutorial video, I can spend up to one hour just to watch the tutorial and trying it out myself.
I don’t have a mentor, but I do talk to a few people whom I looked up to when I’m running a business.
I have a few favourite videographers from countries like Malaysia. They create great video content which Singapore has yet to explore.
All clients are unique but the most I enjoyed was my latest project with SIA.
I do! Especially Singapore Videographers FB Page. Clients know me through word of mouth or LinkedIn.
Two cameras, lightings, audio equipments, and tripod!
Yes, I do. Nowadays, clients want to have videos taken to be seen more credible.
Working with SIA, SaSa Singapore and Hungry Go Where. 🙂
