Modern technology has made it a great time to be a movie maker. Now everyone can typically afford to film their own projects to some extent. However, if you really want your project done right, you’re typically going to have to get a camera crew that really knows what they’re doing – and has equipment that’s a little better than your digi cam and macbook pro.
Things to think about (that are important) are lighting, sound, and getting the right angle. Often times if you’re trying to use your own equipment, it’s hard to get all of this going to create a professional finished product. Having a qualified camera crew is typically a better option. But, going back to how we mentioned that technology is awesome – camera crews are much cheaper nowadays – so you don’t need a Hollywood budget like James Cameron. Cheers to technology!
