    I bet to differ about the gopro thing
    I have the hero 5 black and I got it for Christmas I make all my videos on it and they turn out pretty good
    But since I make all my videos on a gopro my opinion is very biased

    oddly enough the video camera doesn't really matter it appears to be the audio recording that really changes with the price. Interesting.

      I was able to get an amazing deal on a rode video Mic pro on ebay for $25 the guys cat had chewed on the cable but after replacing it it worked fine. But if you want something that doesn't require any work I would suggest a fifine wireless lavalier. They sound pretty good for $20. But if you can learn basic soldering skils i bet you can get some really great deals.

    Of course there are generic formulas for telling stories. All Hollywood films are all the fucking same because they use that same generic formula.

    Awesome stuff! I've been wanting to start a TVclip account about mountain biking and trips out and wanted some kit to get it going (70d sounds perfect). This is a really helpful vid Casey! (Plus I'm coming to NYC and wanted a new camera to film the trip)

    I find it awkward that I am reaching out to someone I don’t know to ask this question. But we don’t know anyone in the film industry.

    May daughter was accepted to both NYU Tisch and Emerson College Film. NYU Tisch is going to be $ 80,000 (out of our pockets) more than Emerson.

    Are the contacts and location of NYC worth 80k more ?
    NYU would put here into about 80k in debt.

    I would LOVE to hear how and where you started getting your music from. This video is the reason I started to fiddle around with a simple Point and Shoot camera. I'm just having fun - but I'm looking for a way, to find 'better' music. I'm using epidemic sound, and they're great.
    But, I'm currently trying to make a tutorial on how to make a owl only using a pierce of wood, a chainsawsaw and a anglegrinder.. But the speaking parts is'nt really some 128 MP electro fun stuff. - Ya. I quess my question is - How do you find your music is my question?
    Thanks for changing lifes. Do what you can't!

    DARK_CENTAURUS 4 months ago

    I got myself a t6s (coincidentally) because of the idea of diminishing return and getting a great picture quality at a great price. I'm glad to come back and see it's in the video as an example. I love it!
