"Pick up your camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister stars in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee." ~ James Cameron

Film Snippet

Low Budget. Low Experience.

All that matters is that you start somewhere. I did.

This is a snippet of a short film I did when I first started.

I was using a cheap camcorder, a ladder to hoist myself up into trees so I could get higher angles, a tripod-on a skateboard-on a carpet as a dolly effect, friends as actors, and a flimsy tripod.

I thought I would post a small bit of the film to show that even if you don’t have $$$ worth of film equipment, a story can still be told.

It also shows that although it may not be the best film, or the clearest storyline…you can still do it, gain experience and learn from your mistakes.

Happy film making 🙂
