As a person with a passion for film, acting, and story telling; I feel as if everyone here really understands my pain and suffering when it comes to buying equipment. I'm in a situation where I'm lucky enough to have the ability to purchase the things I want instead of only the necessities. I guess what I am really trying to get out is whether or not the rest of you would spend every last penny you had on the things that you believe in most, in this particular case, film. I hear about directors selling their houses in order to gather the funds to produce a picture show, a commitment not many people I know would share.
how far would you go to pursue your dreams in film? what would you sacrifice?
Those of you following the thread about the Elite s35 lenses will know what I go on about. Something to do with spending ~$40k or upwards of $100k for cine lenses
