I started out with a Sony handy-cam, and Pinnacle studio 9 and jumped in. As my skills built I added equipment as needed, or as a new project required. My training came from this site Videomaker.com and you tube, sites like film riot or the frugal filmmaker and I built many of my own tools like a camera stabilizer and a shoulder mount and re applied my tripods and lighting from my days as a still photographer. As the others above have started, get a camera and start shooting it get an editing suite and start putting together some footage. Post your video and get feedback from the knowledgeable people on this site. Also the video tips that this site posts almost on a weekly basis will provide you with a good foundation as you grow in this art/craft
