    I've seen articles in respected photography magazines where working professional photographers were given a $200 or $300 camera and 24 hours to produce the best images they could, using natural light and no Photoshop or other post-production tools. Some of the images they produced were breathtaking in their emotional power, composition and artistic style.
    It ain't the tools. It's all about the creative imagination and the soulful expression of that vision by the guy/gal behind the camera and the endless hard work they put in learning their craft. End of story.

    There is actually a formula for telling stories kind of lol. There is the "periodic table of storytelling" definitely worth checking out.

    You put this into such a clear perspective Casey, I hope there are young kids out there still filming mini movies on cheap point and shoots and camcorders like me and my buddies did when we were 10! The world needs that!

  • SubGlow Entertainment

    So far, Casey was a great teacher for filmmaking. We shot RoadTripGraz in similar style crossing over Cinematic, Music video and vlog styles. I'd appreciate if you checked it out on my TVclip channel. Thank you Casey for everything you've thought me.

    Watching this in 2019 and everything still appllies ;) As an complete video noob, and not having the opportunity to enroll in college or cinema schools, what is a good way to study on my own? Any books/manuals you can reccomend?

  • #AL2SmoothTheMountainbiker

    It was this episode that inspired me to start my own Vlog, I started with nothing using my cell phone and over time I started I learn something new everyday I will try and experiment with different things ultimately leaving meat to my biggest feat in a very very long time!!!! I have made it to 200 episodes of my vlog and it all started from this episode right here giving me the fundamentals or how to begin and I just wanted to say thank you!!!
    I'm quite sure you might not see this because you have over a million subscribers but if you do I'd like nothing more than you to stop by my channel and just say hello!!!!
    Thank you for giving me my start to being a TVclip creator

    I like that he basically says "I used these cameras 5 - 10 years ago where the lower quality was standard therefore they would be acceptable in the modern day"

    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.
