USE THE RESOURCES YOU HAVE
The Alexa mini and Phantom Flex 4K are Lewis’ cameras of choice, but he understands that an upand-coming director may not be able to afford a high quality camera just yet.
“Shoot as much as you can on whatever you can. Use a phone to create short films, and post your films online to gain exposure. Use free tools to edit your work. It doesn’t have to look perfect at first. Just keep working at it.” Lewis recommends any phone with a 4K camera, or a Gopro, for beginners.
“Success will not happen in a day. You have to be patient and stick it out. Use what you have until you can afford the type of equipment you really want.” PM
