    My first 'movie' camera

    They are both solid tools within your price range. Both can shoot HD video at24p. I don't believe there is a headphone jack on either model to monitor audio. You will want to invest in audio. I don't know what you mean by "retro" look but if you are looking for stylized video, you would maybe...

    My first 'movie' camera

    The camera is a solid tool within your price range. I don't believe it has a headphone jack to monitor audio. That's a good time to point out that if you get serious about filmmaking/video production you are going to want to invest in solid audio equipment. A great looking film without great...

    My first 'movie' camera

    If you have a smart phone, a simple purchase of FiLMic Pro app ($9.99) will allow your smart phone to shoot HD video at varying frame rates including 24p. For someone just starting out this could be a cheap option to explore. Once you get more comfortable, one of the cameras in the Canon Rebel...

    Short people still care?

    Exactly. "Light's Out" was picked up by Warner Brothers and is being made into a feature with the same director who did the short. I realize having that happen would be like winning the lottery, but I've made countless contacts from making short films that could lead to me doing something more...

    Looking To Join a Film Crew

    I make short films a little North of Boston. I've only been in New England for the last few years so I'm just kind of putting together a skeleton crew. Right now we're a small group and everyone volunteers their time. I'm not working on anything now but probably will in 2016.

    I'm going to do it!

    Thanks! Yeah I've been here about 3.5 years and there is a good little film community here. I sometimes miss the Upstate NY community but a lot of them moved to LA/Austin/Atlanta. I think I remember you saying your gf moved here earlier this year? Or was that someone else on here? Anyway...

    watch Death in C Minor -- A Short Horror Film

    Already told you this in the comments section, but I thought this was one of the better short horror films on YouTube. Great camera work, fitting location. I love the fakeout with the broom.

    watch Creeping (Short Horror Film)

    I would love for you all to check out my new short horror film 'Creeping'. Other than a few episodes of a web series, this was my first film in 5 years. Like any learning experience there are things I felt I did well and things I really need to work on. I'm excited to be making films again and...

    wanting to make a short with $1,000

    Smart phone + FilMic Pro app, which costs $9.99. It can actually get a decent image out of your phone. Here is a test I did with my iPhone: It isn't without flaws but is probably the cheapest HD camera you'll get unless you have a friend/DP who owns...

    Funniest Truly Independent Comedy

    Exactly. A quick Google of his username shows that he as made 1 post on several forums/Reddit about this movie and then never posts again.
