Money can’t buy creative passion

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.

  1. I so agree with you on this, also I do not currently have the means to buy expensive gear, I don’t let that stop me in following my passion and learning about my art as much as possible until I can upgrade my equipment.
    I did buy a DSLR a few months ago, although nowhere near the fanciest one, just a nice beginner to Intermediate level, which does me just fine.
    You are right, you cannot buy creative passion, and working with a grainy camera can have super-interesting results.
