Most everyone has used their own video camera to capture family home movies of memorable events or document important milestones in one's life. So what if you are ready to take it to the next level with a more professionally produced video or put your own story on film?
Evolving to the next level of film producing requires better quality video camera equipment. This does not necessarily mean using the film cameras used in Hollywood, but instead, starting with a good, basic, high quality video camera. Purchasing professional grade new camera equipment can start around $17,500, and that price is only for the camera body. Even higher quality video and film set models can go to $150,000+ for a full camera package. This investment is particularly pricey for a newcomer to the film industry or someone who simply wants to explore a new hobby.
