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
As of now I'm just a JOAT, Master of none. I'm starting to gravitate to directing, writing, and production design
-Your gear if applicable
Looking towards getting the Canon EOS T3i as a starter, might post amazon wishlist later
-What school you went to
NC State and UNCW as of now
-How long you've been making movies
2-3 years
-Your inspiration and influences
Early Peter Jackson, Tarantino, Spike Lee, Nolan
-Your website/ youtube channel/ portfolio etc.
I have a channel but it's mostly a bunch of student films that I hate and that suck
-Plans for the future
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.

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.

I just attended the BANNF film festival when it rolled through the triad and now I'm highly interested in getting into filmmaking. I just need the time
