What To Do Before and After You Move To Another State For A Video Production Job

What To Do Before and After You Move To Another State For A Video Production Job

Fellow microbudgeters and video production ladies and gentlemen, this post is for you. It’s quick-ish (actually, it’s kinda biggish), it’s easy, and it’ll shed some light on some of the fog surrounding this big move of yours.

I’ve worked video production as a PT side gig. I’ve done it as a FT freelancer/self-employed/single-member LLC. I’ve worked at 2 different W2 (i.e. someone else can claim me as their employee) video production jobs - FT - in 2 different states. And since I left home at 18, I’ve lived in 9 different states/countries, sometimes as brief as 8 weeks, and at other times, as long as nearly 5 years. I’ve had more changes to my address than Prince did to his artist’s name. Part of that was being in the military, part of that was job-related. By no means am I an expert on moving, but along the way, I’ve learned a trick or two. While this list is by no means comprehensive, it’ll hopefully shed some light on areas you’re not thinking through just yet.
