Yes you can make a film to satisfy your dream but you also have to think will I ever be able to make the next one. These guys are right on. Most creative people don't know how to sell or promote their work. Strongly recommend a course or book in the art of selling. I think that's why they call it "show BUSINESS".
Mikko, very interesting article. But now I would like for you to compare your top rated lens with the Canon L 50mm 1.2- If a $20K -40K lens is that much better than a $2,000 lens I would like to visually see why so I can educate my mind. I'm not making fun of your article I just want to see WHY the expensive lens are that much better. And yes I know, the Canon isn't a cinematic lens. Thanks
Typical lens are sharpest F8-F11. Lowest f stop is a no no unless needed for light.
Waste of time- Blending the video is the challenging part but he never covered it.
The best movie of the year is "Hidden Figures". This one movie is doing more for the future of this country than 50 "La La Lands".
