Stuff we use:

LENS – Most people ask us what camera we use, no one ever asks about the lens which filmmakers always tell us is more important. This lens was a big investment for us and one we wish we could have made sooner. Started using this lens at the end of 2013 –

AUDIO

Rode VideoMic Pro – The Rode mic helps us capture our backup audio. It also helps us sync up our audio in post

Audio Recorder – If we had to do it all over again, this is probably the first item we would have bought –

LIGHTS – Although we like to use as much natural light as we can, we often enhance the lighting with this small portable light. We have two of them and they have saved us a number of times –

COMPUTER – Our favorite computer, we each have one and have used various models since 2010 –

EDITING – We upgraded our editing suite this year and we’re glad we did! This has improved our workflow and the quality of our work. Having new software also helps when we have a problem, it’s easy to search and find a solution –

    I worked as a CNA and I am now getting into music. His words could not have more accurately depicted his own and my personal point of view.

    "Caring and compassion… I don't know how far that gets you." It's tough to hear, but it's been the theme for me for the past two years. It CAN inform your art – it does make artists better able to understand the people around them and to create art that acts compassionately, BUT it doesn't get that film done.

    In terms of who gets published, drive is necessary. Compassion changes your art but not your output. One needs to be tough enough to push forward and be compassionate to make compassionate art.

    the way i see it, its a gift you have to protect because not everyone is given a gift of music or cinema or anything artistic. the world will see it and try to use you for it. you have to find a balance of wanting to share it and protecting it because once you lose it you cant just get it back

  7. Peter Green says:

    Does this really need an explanation? Why do some people persist? Why do some people not?

    I know why some black artists (Actors) give up.
    They don't want to suck Massa's Weiner.

  13. BIN says:

    I think most artist quit because they don't do it for the love. If you do it for the love you don't worry about the $$$$

    02:04 This is really words of wisdom. Even how supportive people around you might seem, it's you who's going to push through when things are rough. If you can learn to face this fact, you won't quit, you'll just say to yourself: okay, it's tough now, but I'll push through. And there you go, over that mountain top.

    working with this one guy, he knows i have the vision and he intends to take full responsibility for the finished product. but it's becoming clear that my vision will have to extend to the completion of the product and his responsibility for it will begin when that finished product generates acclaim. hot air balloon.

  17. Barbara Stewart says:

    Thank you sooo much. I have so given up on the sweet humanitarism I possed, because it was free and authentic. But I need to revisit the intent. Must pursue my passion on any level. Acting!! I am so good but not discovered, can approach almost anyone and Bam!!! That's my scene!!
