Okay, I'm only 15. Next year I'll be a sophmore in high school. But I've decided I really want to be either a video editor for like movies... commercials, something like that OR a director. Film or theater. Well this year me and one of my (now) senior friends made a student movie. We used our cameras which weren't the best, but hey, use what you can get. And the movie editing program I have and have been using is Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0. I love it to death and it's pretty easy to use. I can do about eerything I want to do with it.
So basically I am saving up money to get a omputer solely for video editing. We went to the Apple store yesterday and the guy there (who happens to be going to college for video editing) said that a MacBook Pro is a great laptop to use for it. And with Final Cut Pro as the software. The computer is $1,999 and the software is $699. So about $3000 for the whole deal. Now I wondered if you think that it's a good computer to use and good software. He said Final Cut is what some companies use, movies and commercials. And the MacBook Pro is what they are required to use at North Carolina State School of the Arts (or whatever)
Basically I want some input on if I should stick to this career choice and what computer/programs YOU think are good to use.
