Thank you so much for the insights you have, I'll definitely keep some of those in mind. It's always good to get opinions from anybody who is interested in the same career path. Although the issue is I'm not sure where to start in my area to find people who share similar interest. Barely any of my friends have any interest in film but they'll watch movies and such lol. I might have to go to festivals or something like that. What my gear set up is right now is a DLSR, Nikon D3400, with a gorilla grip tripod and regular tripod, Rode shotgun microphone, GoPro Hero 4, a phone mount and tripod, so I could probably work with that.
P.S. I like that film short on your page, interesting and creative. Keep on learning.
Wow!, I really love your filmmaking background that's definitely a good road to travel down and yeah I bet it's tough. My exact thoughts on some film schools, it would be amazing but very unaffordable. What if your artsy friends find out it's not for a school project? hehe sneaky
I'm definitely looking to making films but the problem for me is I barely have any filmmaking friends, haha and I'm not sure how to find filmmaking friends in the area. I have a small gear set up and not super professional, I do have some ideas down for some projects I would like to work on but that's the challenge for me, I'm only by myself. There is a saying "the gear is only as good as the person using it." and I think that is true.
If you have any more insights or solutions for me I would be happy to hear them.
I've had a passion for films when I was a kid and growing up but I never realized it until I was halfway in my graphic design program. I want to make films which I want to do because I used to and currently make youtube videos, and work on other solo projects. I love to do stuff through cinematography, film editing and maybe some directing or producing.
