I am probably the only video editor who doesn’t own a DSLR, a Mac computer, or a video camera. How do I get work done? Well, I make use of the resources around me. I bought a film camera at a Goodwill and use my church’s video camera sometimes. Everywhere I’ve worked, I have always had a Mac with all my editing programs.
I know I need to get my own equipment so I can finally experiment and reach my creative potential.
This year I plan on saving up for some good equipment, that and save to move to Paris. So though I may not have the best equipment I do have creative passion. And you can not buy creative passion.
I love what the Bible teaches about how God looks at the heart and not the outer appearance. It reminds me that where I go in life it will be because of the passion that is in my heart not because I can create the best video in the world.
And that helps me create the next video with DV footage or take photos for fun with my grainy film camera.
