Mike provides his own views on making films on a shoe string
The big question for a shoe string film maker is 'to buy or not to buy'? On the one hand if you purchase you can end up with a piece of equipment that goes out of style too quickly. On the other you have to beg, borrow and get pretty close to stealing every time you want to make a film.
I've been doing my research and concluded that for me, buying is the best option and I've gone for the Panasonic G7.
Why you ask? Well I'll explain when my new baby arrives. Bare with me!
