Buddy Brett Ramker

Emmy Award winning producer, operator, editor

I’VE BEEN CREATING CONTENT PROFESSIONALLY SINCE 2012. IN THAT TIME I’VE WORKED WITH SOME INCREDIBLE BRANDS, COMPANIES, AND INDIVIDUALS IN A MYRIAD OF ROLES. I’VE WON 2 SPORTS EMMYS FOR MY WORK ON THE FOX SPORTS 100K CAMERAS DOCUMENTARY SERIES, AND LAST YEAR I PRODUCED MY FIRST FULL LENGTH DOCUMENTARY.

I LEARNED THE HARD WAY.

I DIDN’T GO TO SCHOOL FOR PRODUCTION, INSTEAD I DOVE IN HEAD FIRST. I WORKED FOR NASCAR PRODUCTIONS FOR 5 YEARS, LIVED ON THE ROAD, AND SLEPT IN EDIT BAYS. AT NASCAR, I LEARNED HOW TO SHOOT AND EDIT TO BROADCAST STANDARDS. I WORKED ON A 3 PERSON TEAM, SERVICING AN ENTIRE SERIES (IMSA). BEING THE ONLY “PRE-EDITOR” ON THAT TEAM MEANT I HAD TO CARRY MOST OF THE EDITORIAL LOAD. ONCE I STARTED BRANCHING OUT FROM NASCAR I REALIZED THAT I DIDN’T HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING MYSELF. THAT EXPERIENCE SHIFTED MY PERSPECTIVE FROM HOW AM I GOING TO DO THIS? TO HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS?

I HAVE A PASSION FOR SERVICE.

I’M A GRADUATE OF THE ROSEN COLLEGE OF HOSPITALITY MANAGEMENT AT UCF, AND A 5 YEAR VETERAN OF THE RESTAURANT INDUSTRY (BACK OF HOUSE). RESTAURANTS ARE A VERY CHALLENGING PLACE TO WORK. THEY ARE HIGH PRESSURE BUT REQUIRE YOU TO REMAIN CALM AND THINK ON YOUR FEET. YOUR SHIFT IS ESSENTIALLY A FAST PACED GAME OF PROBLEM SOLVING. WE WORK FOR 8-12 HOURS IN A HOT KITCHEN ON OUR FEET. DO YOU WANT TO MAKE MONEY? WELL YOU BETTER BECOME A MODEL OF EFFICIENCY. IF YOU CAN’T DO ALL OF THESE THINGS WHILE MANAGING YOUR TEAM, THE CLIENTS, AND A RAPIDLY EVOLVING SCHEDULE, YOU FAIL.

SOUNDS LIKE PRODUCTION DOESN’T IT?
