I get the sense we have a pretty good handful of filmmakers on the huddle. Well here's a thread to talk about it. A few questions for you to answer to kick things off (if you want to):

-Your specialty
-Your gear if applicable
-What school you went to
-How long you've been making movies
-Your inspiration and influences
-Your website/ youtube channel/ portfolio etc.
-Plans for the future

I'll give my answers in a bit

More writing than filming although I wouldn't mind doing that.

As for influences I try to limit that so what I do or write is truly original andmy own. Subconciously yes I have been influenced but I try to make a concerted effort to be on my own.

I already told you my oldest son really wants to get into this field... He'll be graduating from HS next year. So I'll be interested to see what you guys discuss...

-Your specialty
[b]As of now I'm just a JOAT, Master of none. I'm starting to gravitate to directing, writing, and production design[/b]
-Your gear if applicable
[b]Looking towards getting the Canon EOS T3i as a starter, might post amazon wishlist later[/b]
-What school you went to
[b]NC State and UNCW as of now[/b]
-How long you've been making movies
[b]2-3 years[/b]
-Your inspiration and influences
[b]Early Peter Jackson, Tarantino, Spike Lee, Nolan[/b]
-Your website/ youtube channel/ portfolio etc.
[b]I have a channel but it's mostly a bunch of student films that I hate and that suck[/b]
-Plans for the future
[b]I'd like to branch out and start another channel that will be more professional and represent more of my own vision. Eventually I'd like to land on a TV production since my brain is more wired for episodic storytelling.[/b]

What kind of software are you using?

My son has a 15" Macbook and got a deal on a student version of the CS6 suite.


I don't know crap about video editing, but we use Photoshop CS5 here at work for imagery editing/production and it's pretty freaking awesome.
