My name is Dylan Baxter
Hence the name, Bax Lab Videography.
I started my business in late 2018 and love what I do.
Every project I work on is an opportunity to
get better at what I do. I like to work closely with my clients to
meet and exceed their expectations and create the best
quality content possible.
So let's work together.
Here's a little bit about me:
I started making videos when I was about 10 years old when I got my first video camera, which was easily the best birthday present I had ever received. Before that I was using my parent's digital camera to make stop motion videos
out of hot wheels and lego.
I created A LOT of videos with that camera, albeit bad ones - but that wasn't important, they were fun to make and my friends and I had a great time putting them together.
I of course deleted them all before getting into high school, scared that people would see them and I'd be made fun of for the rest of my schooling life. I would love to go through and watch them all now. Moral of the story is save your old photos or videos - because having the option to look back is much better than never being able to see them again.
A few years later I changed high schools and started studying Film and TV. My passion was back and I rediscovered that special feeling of creating something. Film and TV had easily become my favourite subject. My teacher inspired me to watch as many movies as possible, especially old ones, and from then on I was hooked.
I've heard a lot of people say: "Once you learn how movies are made, the experience will be ruined for you forever". But I didn't see it that way. For me, learning how much was involved in the production of a film made me appreciate it so much more. The amount of hard work and dedication that goes into a movie from every single person involved will never cease to amaze me. Every shot becomes something to analyse - you start to think: "Why did they put the camera there? What lens are they using? Where are the lights positioned? What sound effects have been added in post?" and about 100 other things. Every single movie ever, even the 'bad' ones (Watch The Room - by Tommy Wiseau), can be watched 100 times over just to analyse the technical aspects of filmmaking alone.
After High School I went to University, to study Film and television production. From there, I've started my business to keep on creating. My goal's to create a balance between professional videography and working on passion projects such as short films, music videos and documentaries. I believe every little bit of work helps in the journey to becoming a filmmaker and that's why I started my own business. I wanted to create as much as possible and why not do it professionally at the same time? Videography is a growing industry and more and more people and businesses are looking for reliable people to help them tell their stories. So that's what I want to do.
Thanks for reading this. I appreciate you taking a bit of time out of your day to read a little bit about my story.
