Every good learning material today on the net is not free at all. You will have to pay for seminars and good workshops.
It depends on your goal in life. not everybody has the means to go go to film school.
I think that there are some people in life who have it naturally . Others have to study, learn before they can get it.
I finished my associate in Graphic design and my master in computer sce before going to film school. the difference was clear between me and other classmates.
This article said so many things the wrong way.
I agree. Whether you choose to or not to go to film school in both cases you need to know that a good filmmaker is a well rounded person. That means that you need to have a broad knowledge of everything and be a good observer of things around you. In film school I was constantly working on a project.
Film school helped shoot my first movie without spending a penny in the equipment.
You don't have to attend necessary an expensive film school. There are some good film programs at the community college in your area.
I made good contact in film school. If you can
Personally I like to master my the gear or camera I am working with. This means that I need to spend more time with it. Renting is not an option for me unless I am hiring with it a camera operator who knows already the camera.
I heard you. Same here.
I am not buying new gears because I want them. I buy them because I need them to better tell stories.
Nice I like it !
