Have you ever been guilty of living up to the cliché of being a filmmaker? This
long short by IFTH lists the 32 rules of becoming a filmmaker. The name is a bit misleading though, I would consider renaming it The 32 Most Annoying Clichés About Filmmakers. Sadly I am probably guilty on all 32.
Here are some of the more annoying ones:
Step 1: Buy a camera, wait 6 months till camera is obsolete, buy a new camera. Repeat
Step 2: Buy a lens, buy more lenses, sell and buy prime lenses, sell and buy Cine lenses.
Step 3: Can’t afford brand name gear? do It Yourself!
Step 4: what are you making fun of DIY gear??? This is it, I am done with this film! (no really watch it till the end, it is hilarious)
