First off: By no means this is to Insult anyone or hurt anyones feelings. I wonder what is YOUR Story to fullfill you Dreams to become a Fimmaker?

What did you do to achieve Fimmaking? I really am currious about your Stories :)

 

My first contact with film was when i was 15. I got myself a little Super 8 Camera and i shot some family films. To bad i dont have these films anymore :(

 

Back in 2008 i started to become interested in film again and i really wanted to become a filmmaker. I was sooo rookie haha. I did not know nothing.

I started to work my butt to the bone. I saved all my money for 1 year. Sometimes i ate bred and cheese haha. I went to Filmschool in Brighton. The happiest time of my life.

The money i saved flowed thru the palms of my hands like sand, but it was worth it.

 

Then again i saved money like crazy. I spent months on Ebay looking at all the offers for 16mm and 35mm cameras and i dreamed to own one. During this time i learned a lot about cameras but i realize today i still don't know nothing at all. I don't care. I am happy to be here, read all the postings, learn from it. I am learning new things every day.

 

Now i am a proud owner of a Moviecam Compact. I still need a few items but i have the body, two 400' mags, one 1000' magazine, batteries and the complete mattebox compendium (Chrosziel). I only need a good lense and tripod. But theses are things i can rent for the moment.

 

I am totally excited and i can't wait to go out to the field and shoot my first footage. :)

 

Regarding filmstock, developing and scaning my film, i did my homework ;)

 

Tell me, what is your story? What did you do to fullfill your dream?

 

Respectfully

Randy
