The era of no excuses

Have you ever sat through a cinema class exhibition, I have just the once and that was enough for me. It was many years ago and most of the efforts where shot on one of the iterations of 8mm film, with no more than a couple of ’em having been shot on 16mm. The equipment gap, the gap between what was reasonably affordable for an amateur and the standard utilised by professionals was a cavernous void back then. So when it came time to review the abysmal standard of work produced by amateurs, it was always possible to fall back on the relative standards of equipment as an excuse.

Today it’s a different story, the standard of equipment used by amateurs actually exceeds most common broadcast standards. This circumstance offers a daunting prospect for the amateur of limited ability, no excuses.
