JB, who are you?

I am a father driven by the needs of my children. Have a look at the home page for more details: Who Is JB?

Why do you create all these videos?

See the answer above.

Is this your full time job?

No, really, I am a web developer. However, if I can increase my ability to help my children by creating videos then why not.

How do you get all your footage and music?

Most of the raw footage you see on JB’s Man Cave, around 95%, I video recorded myself! The rest of video content, including the music, is ONLY used through contract or license. However, ALL 100% of the videos on JB’s Man Cave are owned and created by me. Keep in mind, it is one thing to take raw video footage, but then there is also another skill that requires editing and production. Therefore, all videos on JB’s Man Cave are copyrighted and should not be re-published, copied or distributed elsewhere without my expressed written permission.

Can you show me how you record and edit your videos?

Make sure to Subscribe to JB’s Man Cave because I will have (or it may be out already) a playlist concerning video production and some of my publishing methods. I get a lot of messages about how I did ‘x’ or ‘y’ in video production. Please don’t ask me for intricate details about the software I use, the camera I have, the mounts I own and so forth. Anything I wish to share I will create a video about it.

Can I copy a bit of your video(s) for a project?

No. I do not like people copying or reproducing my work for ANY reason. I created these videos to help my children not to share around. If you need to HIRE me to create an exclusive video for your project then I can do that see more under “Are you available for hire?” Additionally, if you know someone that is plagiarizing my work then please let me know via the Contact page.

Are you available for hire?

That depends on what you are hiring me to do? Please use the Contact page and be as detailed as possible making sure to mention both your BUDGET and TIMELINE. Please note, if you are asking me to do private investigation or take footage of someone’s residence then forget it — I do not do that kind of thing. If you are asking me to record a certain area as a whole, your business and / or you are a celebrity / person of interest and will like more coverage then please consider the below… “Do you take requests?”

Do you take requests?

People often ask me to record this or that but do not understand what is involved in their request. Video recording is not as simple as simply pressing the record button. One has to evaluate safety, decipher the weather, schedule time, travel (sometimes to remote or difficult areas), take equipment, correlate with people and dedicate time to the recording. All of that is just to make the actual raw video / audio recording. Then, comes the production where another period of time has to be taken to edit, produce, and publish the video! Therefore, in making a request you should consider in what way YOU will be helping me to fulfill your request. Consider the above “Are you available for hire?”

How do I contact you?

Please use the Contact page and be as detailed as possible.

Do you have more than one channel?

Yes, on the home page of my YouTube Channel to the bottom you can see a list of other channels we work on.

Do you have a site to discuss issues like a bulletin board or forum?

Yes, of course, go to International Discussions and register for free. Virtually any topic you can think of is there.
