How Can I Move This Thing Along? Whats Next?
For the last few months I have been slowly but surely coming up with some of the gear I need to come in on a entry level to this business. I have a camera, just got the new laptop that can handle all of the video editing. I have a somewhat tolerable tripod but I know I will have to invest in another one soon. And most recently I just got in a new lens. Only thing left to get is a digital recorder because I found out my camera does not have an external audio input.
I have a bunch of different ideas for films I want to put to work. But lately I have just been feeling so stagnant. I want to do more but I still have to work and pay bills. I thought I had a team of friends that was going to be my crew but I found the only person that was serious about doing this was me. Ive just been researching and researching. Now I'm tired of researching, I'm ready to get out here and put my ideas on a screen. Im just not sure how to go about doing it by myself. Like how to meet the right people, or what to shoot when I am all I have. Lately I have been sticking to music videos. I have been trying to volunteer for other guys projects but i'm not sure where to find them other than social networking. And that does not seem to be working.
I guess im just asking how did you guys move your career along you know?
