So thats why Im here. To learn.To see if film is where I really belong. I was hoping some of you would be kind and teach me some things.Trust me there is nothing more that I want than to work on a film. Where can I get started and learn all the basics??? etc.
Well Im done making a fool out of myself.Sorry if I came off in a bad way.Im really willing to learn.

I suggest you check out the ASC bookstore: http://www.theasc.co...egory=Bookstore
Try to get an internship at a camera rental place to learn about the gear. Try to get an internship at a lab to learn about the stocks. And study classic painting to learn about composition and light. To quote my DoP: "if you don't know how to light, light like Caravaggio. You can't go wrong!"
And try to get whatever job at a shooting to learn about the real world.
