I have 16 years of experience as a film director. I have used various cameras and production equipment and aften find myself useing my "complete" filmmaking skills. I know how to get the best perfromances from my actors and I have learned that the best way to make a film is to just go out and make it. We can't always sit around talking about movies. That's not to say that this type of interaction can't be constructive. It is simply to say that in order to truely learn, one must actually do the job. Whether that is with a production company or on our own there is not better way to craft our skills as complete filmmakers than to just do it. I know a lot of so called filmmakers who have never made much of anything in their life. What is important is that we all try our best with whatever equipment is available to us at the time. I wish I had this or that won't cut it. Action!
