Dave Chung and Hey Buddy TV (aka Divers8emedia) have been working in the broadcast video production industry for 20+ years. My decades of experience and knowledge in broadcast production as a DP and field producer, will be a perfect fit for your company. Besides being a DP and Producer,
I have also worked as:

I have directed, produced, shot, lit, operated audio and edited TV, video and broadcast programming for the past 2 decades. I started operating camera (jib) for broadcast shows and newscast for ZDTV (TechTV) and did this for 6 years. After I was laid off, I started a small video production company (Hey Buddy) where I wore numerous hats – Director of Photography, Producer, Shooter, Editor, Lighting Designer and Studio Manager – while trying to combine the client's imagination with the realities of Broadcast TV production.
At Hey Buddy, I had to write, produce and DP a clear vision of the client’s video and marketing needs. As a company, we bid, budgeted, developed, researched and negotiated contracts to work with celebrities (Rhianna, Jay Z), companies (Maxim magazine, Louis Vuitton) and even built several multi-camera broadcast studios from a bare office (PJTV, Security Token Academy, IMF) to a multi-camera green screen broadcast studio.

Start-ups (ZDTV, Revision3), Fortune 500 companies (Apple), numerous media conglomerates (NBC, ESPN) and Jobs: live event productions (Dreamforce - George P. Johnson), E3, SXSW, NAB and Comic-Con.
