Do you think that you have to have expensive equipment to make great videos?
The answer is NO!!!
Just because you see other people using equipment that costs thousands of dollars, doesn’t mean that they know what they are doing.
In fact, more people buy expensive equipment and don’t know what they are doing compared to people who know what they are doing.
When it comes to me, I am not just a filmmaker. I am also a collector. So I will not necessarily use all of my equipment ALL the time. I bought some of my gear just so I have it. It’s my guilty pleasure LOL.
But for those of you think that you need a “shiny new whistle” every year, which is not necessarily the case.
For example… The Canon 5D Mark II. An excellent camera, but old (from 2008). It is still considered an industry standard camera and can be found on the internet for well under $1,000.
If that price point is still too high, you can even get away with making fabulous videos on point and shoot cameras. Cameras that cost less than $300!!!
Here is the thing FILMMAKER…
It is not about the equipment you own.
It’s about the skill.
How skilled are you?
The more you do with less, makes you a better filmmaker. GUARANTEED!!!
When I first started out with filmmaking, I used a $150 camcorder that gave me subpar picture quality, but I was still able to capture interesting footage and make it look great!
If you are starting off your filmmaking career, never rely on equipment. Rely on your skill and imagination.
I cannot wait to see what you create!
