I made my first film when I was 11. It was a claymation short with a soundtrack of Sublime and Sugar Ray. I was given a Hi-8 Sony Handycam for my Bar Mitzvah, we made Blair Witch imitation films and played with fireworks. I edited for hours on my VCR.
I picked up a DSLR a few years back and have since ditched it in preference for my relationship with film photography.
