Good on ya, Bill. Yeah; go for it. Depending on where you are, you absolutely can rent more pro gear as you need it. If you have the drive, do it. I've taught film, but formal training isn't the only way to go. Likely, you'll find that you want to grab some course work as you get into it, but maybe not.
Bill's right; it's important to act on the idea, rather than put it off. We're in an era where the field is open as it's never been. Jump in.
