Indeed. I used the A7SII for family portraits for years. 12MP is fine with sharp glass, and proper framing.

I'd add A) Most directors make their money shooting commercials (if you don't like commercials, find a different day job to support your art). B) Many classic films were financially unsuccessful and panned by critics when they were released. C) There is now such a deep catalog of great movies that the average person can't see them all before they die. D) The world doesn't need new movies, but making them anyway is good for your soul.
