You'll get to run your sets the way you want to run them. It'll be your dime.
Of course I would be open to changing my style. Doesn't mean I should be bad at it to force a certain style upon me. Also, I'd be wise to be able to instruct when your people are inexperienced. When they're not you I will just say what my vision is and we can discuss like normally. No point in micromanaging crew in that way.
You're not getting me. It's a bigger risk to your wallet to buy the wrong gear. Spending twice is never the economical move.
The thing is, I don't know if I will spend twice. There's also the chance of it breaking beyond repair before I upgrade.
When the future is unclear, never spend big. And yes, 2k is a lot for me. Wish I'd make it in a month.
Nothing good ever is. If you have the right skills, put the effort into making the right connections, and have the right resources, it's not that hard to put together a team.
Stop taking it out of context, please! I said: I WILL DO IT
Also, definition of easy = achieved without great effort; presenting few difficulties
It clearly does present difficulties since I've never gathered a crew. And I tried to 'recruit' during small talk whenever I can and the one time I found it right to ask, I was rejected. And the guy loves movies, lives near me, and I've known him for 4 years. So go figure.
But don't worry, I'll try again and use some other methods.
And I agree with you that everything worth something isn't easy.
In conclusion of this argument back and forth: It's not easy, it's not hard. It's very much possible with enough effort.
