As you probably have determined by now, my name is Will Campbell. I currently live in Louisville, KY with my wife, but I am originally from Brandenburg, KY. I went to school at WKU where I studied film. I loved my time at WKU and the film program was great. I made a lot of friends in the program, and have even worked with a few since graduating.
This past year I freelanced primarily for a company here in Louisville. It was a great experience. I got to work with some really awesome guys and learned a lot from switching to a new editing software to better understanding audio production. This past summer they ended up taking their company in a new direction and went all in on a app that they've created and has taken off. The result of this left in me in a place where I needed to make a decision. I could either take over their biggest client that they offered to turn over to me, or I could go out on my own and take the risk of trying to build my own business. This was a decision that I weighed heavily. On one hand I could have a steady flow of income from this client even though it wasn't necessarily what I got into this industry for, or I could go out on my own and do work that I was more interested in with the risk of having to constantly find sources of income. After much prayer and discussions with my wife, I decided to take the risk and go all in on myself, focusing on projects that I enjoy most, such as weddings, commercials, and promo videos. It has only been two weeks since I made this decision and I couldn't be happier. Since then I have filmed one wedding, booked five more weddings, and have two upcoming commercials to produce. I know it's going to be a lot of hard work, constantly searching for new clients, but I am a firm believer that you should enjoy what you do and when you do good work will come from it.
