        You might want to consider a full taping of both days that you could then offer for sale. I’d consider buying it if the price was right.Report

            I really do wish I could see a way through to able to put the money and effort into a film that would make it something I’d be proud to offer for sale, but right now, the way things are, I just don’t see a way to make it add up.

            My wife and I had a 2 day strategy session trying to figure out where the sweet spot is for us on investment of effort and money so right now I at at this moment, shopping for a higher-end DSLR to make my “advertising media work” look better. (You all understand that everything I write, shoot, edit, post and publish is to promote our sailing business, right?)

            That’s kind of exciting. The last time I bought a professional camera was when I bought the Eclair ACL 16mm cameras the we used to shoot our erotic docs. The last professional still camera I bought was a Fuji GX680 back in 1992.Report
