Cameras for All

Always thinking about cinematography it is amazing how far the industry has some. 2-Perf Mind got me thinking about how easily accessible camera are compared to year ago when movies were made solely on filmstock. Nowadays many people can get just a fairly cheap DSLR camera and take outstanding pictures or videos. You don’t need to be a professional to be able to be a creative. The cost of equipment is still on the expensive side when comparing it to various other hobbies but you put in what you are willing to pay and what you want to capture. I believe this could be what separates pros from semipro and amateurs. When I looks at my future of working on films or perhaps even having my own studio I know I am store for a long line of expenses. Cameras, lights, editing software, sets, props, rigs, computers, monitors, mics, and so on. The list could go on. So while the camera itself can be easily accessible there is a lot that comes into play when thinking about cinematography. Its an exciting but expensive industry. For the time being I am fine with my DSLR, a few lenses, and some minor other accessories. Always looking forward to upgrade though.



1. Could this blog be helpful for feature film makers?

I would have to say no. This blog is basically about amateur filmmaking because that is where I am at currently in my life. I want to share some of my knowledge along with experiences. I hope that I can also learn some new filmmaking tricks from others in the process.

2. Should photographers check out this blog?

It certainly couldn’t hurt! I like to think there is a fine line between photography and videography. Each use many of the same elements to capture images whether they be still or in motion.

3. What is your experience in the field of videography thus far?

Well I am currently a college student looking to broaden my talents. I have done some interning a few years back for a company called New York Sound and Motion where I was basically just a grip but it was a great experience.

4. Where does most of your expertise lye?

Currently I am most comfortable with shooting and editing. And when I say shooting I mean camera work and how the camera is able to move through space. I still am getting used to how to light scenes properly and how to capture great audio for projects.

5. Have you made any videos or short films of your own?

Yes indeed I have. I’m just waiting for the right time to display them. I like to wait until I know I have a video that I think is great and I know that everyone will enjoy. I understand that wont always be the case but I figure that if it is something I’m not happy with then other people would feel the same if I uploaded that video.

6. What is your favorite kind of video to make?

I really enjoy putting shots to music so pretty much music videos. I think its fun to work with people who have such a great passion for music especially because it is one of my passions as well. I also like working on commercial type videos for practically the same reason. People put their heart into business so I like to work in an environment where people enjoy and believe in what they are doing.

7. Any questions left unanswered?

Feel free to contact me via email at I’d love to hear from all you guys.

Cigars for Class

There is always that classy feeling of being able to pull out a nice cigar and light it up. You always imagine the hot shots at businesses opening a box of cubans and spreading them around. Cigars bring people together for some great quality time and intriguing conversation. If you enjoy the occasion cigar with pals, then you are a friend of mine. Stay classy.
