Just a fresh film maker trying to find his way.
NO. NO. NO. You and all the other filmmaking blogs have been posting this like it's fucking gospel. JUST NO.
This hurts us all. DO NOT, work for free. NEVER EVER do it. If you don't know your shit, then don't work. Learn, and keep learning until you know your shit, then once you do you can offer your services. BUT NEVER work for free. It devalues all of us in this craft. This is just a common story among all creatives. For some reason people think that creatives love this shit so much they are willing to live in poverty and make cool shit for them.
The only time you should be working for free is with your friends or at school.
Totally the wrong lens in the picture... HA! That's the old A-Mount lens. The new 50mm looks like the new 35mm that was recently released as well.
I love filmaking... but I have to live too. One day I'll have to support a family, etc. So it's a tough dilemma, do I do what I love and have the rest of my world suffer, or pursue something more lucrative that I can enjoy the rest of life?
So no, when 99% fails it isn't healthy. For now all I can do is weekend films, with no to little budget. Films won't pay the bills at least not yet. We may see more netflixes, and amazons pop up. While not as lucrative as hollywood big budgets, they can still provide a livelyhood for filmmakers.
The last one has me scratching my head... if any camera works... why not just shoot everything on a 5D?
I was kinda hoping for a more in depth reasoning of why people chose these cameras... but looks like it was a just because. I'd rather just pick a camera and use it for everything, but that's me.
Dell XPS 15. That's what I'm using currently, and I absolutely love it!
I would... but they are a bit much to haul around, and a bit on the pricey side. I'm trying to keep myself as mobile as possible. Thanks for the input!
