It would mean a lot to me if you'd go check out my go fund me and help me get the tools I need to elevate my cinematography.
cydwhitIn the world I live in people usually get something back when they invest. So what will you give us in exchange for our hard earned $$$?
Sorry, but dude I really don't get this at all. Your edits are NOT being held back by your gear at all, they are held back by your creativity, experience and skill. This is not the camera's fault and upgrading with other people's money is not going to fix it
Get a real job, you're gonna need one if you want to survive as a filmer anyway, and keep creating, keep learning and practicing, but please, don't come asking for money if you don't have anything to offer in exchange.
So good luck! And don't get me wrong, I can't wait to see you progress, I'm just not going to be your mom and buy you new gear.
Dub_DigitalI agree with Slowaimer, put the gear you NEED on a credit card. I did this, and it gives you incentive to work harder and get jobs and pay it off! It also gives you incentive to purchase the things that you actually NEED

Alternatively, when you contract work you could simply rent gear (why is that such a bad word among some people?), then use the profits afterwards to buy whatever you want. That way you have the same flexibility as using a credit card without incurring interest and risk because you had to fill some internal void by buying shit you didn't really need.
