      `Buy Camera/(lights and mic) > Write every week > Film every weekend > Post weekly shorts on Youtube > Build a portfolio of my best work > Hope to gain attention/try promoting it on social media

      P.S what major things am I missing when it comes to filmmaking in my list below?**

      As the title explains, I’m trying to learn the craft of filmmaking. After years of thinking its too much of a risky thing, I said fuck it. If I want to make my dream come true, I should do it now. However I have never made a movie before and tbh don’t know anyone in the industry that can give me some advice. Thank god for this sub.

      I’ve been watching movies/making of footage for a while now. After my “fuck it” moment, I started watching tutorials on writing, lighting, sound, blocking, cuts/transitions, unspoken rules etc. I find them all interesting and in my head that was the theory.

      I am saving up for a Lumix G7, but have also heard that those €500,- are better spent on lighting, or a good microphone. How true is this? Because I would like to learn the ins and outs of the camera and how to use it in different ways.

      Also, once I have an actor (meaning a friend who’d like to help me out/learn some acting), my plan is to make short “simple” movies of a few minutes. Writing through weekdays and filming on weekends. After that, I want to put them on youtube weekly/every other week. Just to learn the craft slowly and hopefully gain some attention from people who are more familiair with the industry.

      Equipment isn’t everything, story is. You can have the best gear but it won’t make a lousy video any better. Also remember that sound is just as an important part of your production as the picture. If you are working with just one actor consider a wireless lavalier mic. An on camera mic can either be too far away from your subject, or pick up too much of the surroundings.
      A good YT channel to look at is the work of Philip Bloom. He is a professional film maker and a lot of his videos are great examples of visually telling a story along with using the right music etc.
