It's the expensive, expensive part that keeps me from participating right now. Also the time-consuming, time-consuming.
My church is doing one of their regular plays. I like acting (except when it means I couldn't get actors and have to do that in addition to directing, producing, and camera operating), but I've decided that I should sit out on that and do the performance video again, since that way I wouldn't have to take so much time off of work and spend grueling months learning lines. I got into filmmaking because you don't need to spend forever rehearsing.
I did the video last year because I'd just arrived at home after they'd already been rehearsing a while, and I was trying to plug in at church and put my career skills to use. Afterward I kept hearing praise for how much better the performance video was than usual.
