No Budget, No Limits: Inspiration for Amateur Production

"Improve your films not by adding more equipment and personnel but by using what you have to its fullest capacity. The most important part of your equipment is yourself: your mobile body, your imaginative mind, and your freedom to use both. Make sure you do use them."
- Maya Deren
