This is fantastic perspective! Especially from a young man who has every reason to fall into the trap of tech. The tech evolutions that have happened throughout the past decade are remarkable; we, as filmmakers, should feel fortunate to live in this time. But the rising obsession with gear has put our artists at risk of joining an elitist, "latest-and-greatest" thought process. If we obsess over the best-of-the-best, we risk reverting back to the closed-door industry of yesterday. Remember when we were young and aspiring filmmakers? All we wanted was the opportunity to create something, and every new experiment was an adventure! But there was a locked gate between us and being "serious" artists and producers. Now that the gate has opened, we should be careful not to let it close behind us. Thanks so much to Simon for reminding us why we began!
My team and I have been using Frame.io and in one week it has vastly improved our efficiency. If you haven't checked out the "Compare Versions" feature, it's fantastic!
