"Necessity is the mother of invention."
Having all the best gear will not make you a great film maker. It really, really won't.
Having a shitty old camera might make life more difficult, but difficult forces you to learn, adapt, invent and innovate.
Ideas will make you a great film maker.
You can follow the heard and make what everyone else is making, or you can create something new, develop a style, an identity, a flow that feels like it has personality.
Find your flow and let it grow.
