Lucky 13 Studios / Joseph Dunphy 1 year ago To start out ... would it be too unforgivably cliched for me to write something like "whoo hoo"? :) Finally, at long last, I have a videocam. Yes, I know, good ones can be had for a few hundred dollars, which might not seem like very much to a gainfully employed professional, but when you're living on a tutors salary, below the poverty line, it's a lot. So, it was a long wait, while I saved up cash, thanks being offered to whoever was listening that mom's people have as many recipes for rice and beans as they do, but now I have it. And the adapter and memory card, of course. This brings us to step two. For shooting my first few videos - architectural shots, people making coffee, etc, I have what I need. But eventually, I was hoping to shoot ultra-low budget movies, little theater pieces on film (OK, on memory card) and I was wondering how people had found cast members in the past. In particular, how did people find cast members on whom one could rely, when money wasn't being made?
