Contact Doug Johnson Productions
Purpose of Contact
While we are happy to answer questions, DJP is not usually a consultation or support firm, and we are extremely busy. Please be concise. For example:
- Do you like the Sony PXW-Z150 for shooting concerts? (Yes!)
- What model of PTZ camera are you using? (Sony SRG-300SE)
- What brand of case are you using for your equipment? (mostly Gator)
There are some types of questions that we can't answer because they are too general, would require research
to answer effectively, or can't be sufficiently addressed by a short answer. Please avoid questions like:
- Should I buy camera A or B?
(We don't know where or what you're shooting, your budget, what cameras you already have, etc.)
- What is 3G Level B?
(I have a video that covers that)
- What type of case should I get for my equipment?
(Again, we know nothing about what type of equipment, your budget, how the equipment will be transported, etc.)
- What kind of switcher should I buy?
(We know nothing about your requirements)
Please do not contact us with questions like: "I have a budget of $50,000. What should I buy?"
There's no way for us to answer that. We don't know anything about what you'll be shooting, where you'll be shooting, where it will be distributed, what gear you already have, the skill level
of your crew... just to name a few of the many variables that go into those types of decisions. And trying to communicate all of that information over email is just infeasible.
From now on, we won't even take the time to reply to these requests unless you indicate that you're willing to hire DJP on a consultation basis.
If you are having trouble with a product and need help your needs will probably be best met by contacting the manufacturer
of the product, as they will be the most knowledgeable and have the proper resources to answer your questions.
If you have a question that requires more than a sentence or two to answer, Doug is available to assist at a rate of $100/hour (1-hour minimum).
DJP usually does a great job of researching products on our own, but if you have something value-oriented that
is particularly useful, please feel free to contact us using the form below. We'd prefer to not be contacted
While we do have reviews on YouTube, we do not do paid reviews. We may accept free products or loaners
for review purposes, as long as there are no restrictions on the review content and no requirement that a review be
approved before publishing. And we will, of course, disclose how a product was obtained as part of the review video.
Thank you for your interest in using DJP!
We welcome your request, and you can expect that we will reply quickly. If, however, you are looking for a quick estimate for video
production services, we do have a page on our site to do just that. Feel free to use that, but we'd be more than
glad to hear from you directly, and we'll answer any questions you may have.
Thanks for your interest in working with DJP! We're always looking for talented individuals to join us.
Please note that DJP doesn't have a permanent staff. The very nature of the type of work that we do means that
job opportunities come sporadically, and labor needs vary wildly from one event to the next. So we work exclusively with contractors to
meet our staffing needs.
If you're interested in working as a contractor for DJP, please sign up on our site. Once approved
you'll be notified of opportunities in your area, and you'll be able to bid for jobs.
