I like making films for the fun of it. My cast and crew are the friends and family of Studio Garrousset.
THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP! It seems that the general consensus is to keep saving and invest in Apple.
Now for the next question... which editing software?!
I would really appreciate your advice with buying a new laptop if you have a moment. I am a total amateur (only got a very basic tin-can camcorder at present) and have made a couple of simple, low quality short films using my (now stolen) MacBook Pro with iMovie.
I am looking for a new laptop, but don't want to jump on the Apple bandwagon unless it's adviced. I feel they are overprice and I really didn't enjoy using my mac previously (I found it kept freezing and jolted the videos, perhaps this was because I was using iMovie?!).
Any advice on which laptop to go for, bearing in mind I am just doing this for fun, and need to use it for life too... But then I am likely to become more geeky about film editing down the line! I have read the thread you commented on before but I don't understand half of the jargon used!
