I'm pretty much a newbie at film and editting but I am looking forward to it being my career. I'd really like to get a 2nd opinion on some of these movies. Here's the site: http://midwestfilms.tripod.com/mwf/index.html
It's absolutely essential you get the basics of shooting video mastered before you start filming. Editing is, of course, fundamental. But if you don't have decent footage "in the can", it's not even worth transferring it to your PC.
