Offcourse, I’m a photographer first but have a urge to learn about the wonderful world of Video/Film-Making & create good short films. Since investing in an video camera is not a budget solution, I would be learning to make videos on DSLR camera’s which offer more than decent quality. For time-being, I don’t have a DSLR but I always thought of making a short film just to make myself happy & improve on my filming skills. Left with no option but my Canon Powershot SX100 IS still camera, I decided to film a short film on it.
