I've lurked here for a while now, trying to read and soak up as much information as possible.
Conclusion; it takes alot of time and effort to do what you guys do, but i've got to start somewhere.
The reason i'm posting this is because i'm trying to start off an idea thats been in my head for quite some time now, creating a reality based webseries about what i do.
For personal reason i'll keep to myself what it is (it hasn't been done before), but it has to do with sports and i'm really passionate about it.
It takes up all my time and effort, its a way of life, but its tough when you have no sponsors and barely get payed.
So i've come up with this idea, to create an outlet not only for myself, but also for the people around me who've helped me troughout my career, as well as other people in the sport with integrity and passion for what they do.
What i hope to gain out of this is to get a platform for sponsors to start investing in my career, and if not for me i hope it'll be for the people who are helping me.
It's a tough world and those people put so much time and effort in me i hope i can thank them by getting them exposure.
Note; i've got no experience or background making/editing AT ALL.
What i do have is alot of motivation to make a succes out of whatever i do, and im a firm believer of doing your homework.
But there's so much information out there that makes it hard to figure out how to start.
I've made my pc ready to start editing, installing adobe software, and watched a ton of tutorials on youtube (especially the "videomaker" channel) on how and whats and whens.
I haven't even bought a camera yet, but i do have money saved up (around E1200/1400) so i can buy a decent one.
But i do believe that the power of a good production comes not from having the best camera, but from smart editing and shooting, knowing what you are actually doing right??
I've read about storyboards and such but when you have an idea where do you guys actually start and what do you put on paper?
What camera should i pick? (note: i can only make the investment ONCE)
Is there any1 out there who has experience in what i've been writing above?
ANY help is greatly appreciated
