Creativity is born out of mistakes, the wrongs, the constraints, the limitations, the quest and every feeling of more we face and make… I guess that’s why God never holds us by those shortcoming of us.
” Less is more, and more is less…” “keep it simple stupid…” Hmmm, is discipline a catalyst to creativity or a purgitude of creativity?
To be continued…
Jacob cheated, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah was a drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossip, Martha was a worrier, Mary Magdalene was a harlot, Thomas was a doubter, Sarah was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Esau was hairy, Zaccheus was short, Abraham was old, Lazarus was DEAD. God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the CALLED! Re-post this if you know you are not perfect, but God is working in your life anyway!
Using the canon 7D with technicolors cinestyle on an outdoor shoot, provides u with a wonderful detailed picture that when optimized with color finesse and magic bullets looks gives you a filmic look. Which is so amazing especially in Nigeria, where the atmosphere is so dusty.
And for indoors? Hmmm… Wonderful! When lighted properly
The Canon Dslr’s are an incredible tool, yes have their short commings and defficiencies (which will be metigated in d new upgrades I suppose). But a great machinery to express how and what we feel, when we feel what we feel.
For once, equip manufacturers put the average young Film-maker in mind during their invention lookout (which might be their maketing strategy- “sell to every body, anybody”)-
That young film maker that never had the funds to enrole into NYFA or other film institutions, but diligently followed mentors like Shane Hurlbut , Philip Bloom, Tom Antos, who have constanly and diligently gave out knowledge at next to nothing cost and workshops on youtube.com like videomaker, abelcine and a whole lot of others.
That young film maker that resides in Africa( Nigeria) , Asia (india) and any third world continent.
That young film maker that has a thought and an idea and loves the art of motion pictures, and is ready to go all the way.
I personally know a lot cos’, maybe I fall into these category of film makers.
The Canon Dslr’s have just unleashed a new generation of thoughts and beliefs system ” POSIBILITY” , a generation that has no box enveloping them, so why should they think outside the box?
We are happy and glad that we can sleep wake up dream and shoot what we dreamt. We now have what to die and live for- Cine ma.
