You're either deliberately trolling or you're just myopic.
If you expose yourself to just conventional mainstream cinema you're still wrong.
Expose yourself to more movies and you'll realize how wrong you are.
What.....Why is this an article here? I genuinely want a response from you to understand why.
it doesn't make any sense.
Thank for this!
Just wanted to say how helpful these articles are.
I used to work as a cinematographer/editor
Now I'm moving into teaching film and you guys have some amazing articles and videos to use as recourses.
Thank a bunch ya beautiful bastards!
Usually, to find investments on a small project like the one your discussing you'll need something to give back to the source donating money (at least in my experience)
People will either want you to shoot something for them or they'll want advertising time in the video (maybe a screen card at the start or finish of the video)
Or you can try to crowd fund it, sure.
The trick with all of this is - Why - Why would people want to invest in you? There is no real answer for anyone to invest in a stranger other than 'That project looks interesting, I'd like to see it'
No real advice to give you, but if you're just starting out, I think it's a little on the cheeky side to ask for money, maybe make the money yourself, produce some content that looks good, so as to say 'here's what I've done on my own, it's great, with your help I can make things which're even better'
The best thing I ever did was move from a Canon to an A7s.
The codec on the A7 is far more malleable. The h264 codec isn't great, its a good start. The XAVCS codec on the a7 is so much better and you can take it a lot further.
It's still a mirrorless camera but it's a leap away from the Canon and can offer the next stage of learning.
