Since I work in the industry, people are always asking me how to get started.

Number one piece of advice? Get professional help. Organisations like LIFT offer workshops, discount equipment rentals, and networking (vital to finding an experienced DoP or editor to work with).

"Yes, yes," you say. "But how do I get money?"
