The photography part means definitely you want a DSLR. I will get downvoted by everyone who hates Canon, but...starting from scratch with $2k, you could do well with a Canon t5i (or t4i or t3i), a Tamron 28-75 2.8, and a Tokina 11-16 2.8. And have a few bucks left over.
Whatever you get, start reading like crazy. Buying the camera is 10% of the battle. Good luck!

If this site's writers would realize how useless words like "incredible," "insane," and "epic" are, that would be incredibly, insanely epic. Otherwise keep up the good work.
I find it tremendously instructive--and comical--to compare the work of a commenter to the work he is criticizing.
I wouldn't find it necessary to belittle the site as a whole. On the other hand, I agree with you that this is a massive achievement of filmmaking that most people should be looking to learn from.
