“I talk to aspiring filmmakers who waste so much time asking people what kind of camera or format they should shoot on and blah blah blah. Grab the camera you can get your hands on fastest and start shooting with it. Everything else will fall into place.”
– Robert Rodriguez
‘Nuff said. Now get back to writing, shooting, or editing.
This can be summed up as Daniel Bean’s Law of Filmmaking #1:
Thou shalt not obsess over gear.
I have shot short films with $15,000 worth of camera gear, and I have shot short films with $800 worth of camera gear. They looked about the same.
Sorry if my blog has been sparse of late. I’ve got a feature film to make. And I realized that the more time I spend on blogging, the longer it will take me to make my feature.
Best wishes in your endeavors, and staty in touch!
