Film Maker or Digital Capture Artist?
I encountered some debate between the older school of thought and our current incarnation, generation what have you, of visual media artists that to call one's self a film maker is not quite accurate since most 'film makers' outside of bigger budget films don't typically
A. Manufacture celluloid or other physical types of film
B. Work with said physical capture films.
A older school of thought cinematographer that I talked to was so passionately against calling the younger generation film makers but more of digital capture artists. What are your thoughts on this matter?
How do you identify yourself? As a film maker? A story teller using the digital medium? At what point call you stop calling yourself a 'aspiring' film maker and start saying you are a film maker?
