Chapter 43: Upgrade!

Finally! Finally, I decided on what phone to go for. After much deliberation, I bought the Huawei P30 Pro, which seems to have a decent enough camera to start recording with (40 MP).

Now I need to look at a good audio solution, not just the different microphones I’ll need but also a decent way of recording them. I’ll probably spend a few days looking for cheap audio recorders.

But for now, I think it’s time to start writing! Or maybe collab writing with a few friends of mine for scripts. Things feel like they are slowly getting to where I want them to be!

Chapter 40: Filming on a Budget.

So let’s talk about a Youtuber I have recently started following. D4Darious.

I found this guy while searching around on YouTube for budget movie making. In fact, he was pretty much the first video I clicked I’m slowly working my way through his 160 videos.

I’m learning a lot from him, not just what equipment is worth looking at but also about finding locations, actors etc. The video I linked above gives a pretty in-depth look at filming on a budget. Even going as far as to show a short film he makes and examples of shots, shooting order, lighting, actors etc!

Please please check him out if you havee any interest in film making! Watching his videos has inspired me to bust out good old Microsoft word and to start writing again.
