Hi Michael, I'm basically repeating what I mentioned to Chris. It would be wonderful if we can all get crewed up with amazingly talented people. However, sometimes you are all you've got -- with no budget. I don't think that anyone wants to be a crew of one. But, if want your vision to be more than a fantasy, you do what needs to done. I speak from personal experience.
Hi Chris, I have to disagree with you. Obviously, it would be ideal to have access to a higher end camera. Unfortunately, life is not always ideal. I believe one of the big takeaways from the article is to use what is available to you. The world is filled with people who wait for that perfect someday and get absolutely nothing done. Shoot now with whatever you have. Get your film out there and move on to greater things.
