i know how you feel, my school has an hpx170 with an adapter to mount 35mm prime lenses, and i haven't done anything at all, ive been there for 3 years. ive decided im gonna buckle down and bang out a script or two over the summer and get into production as soon as school starts next year.
im such an asshole. i have access to canon xh-a1, panasonic HVX and DVX cameras, and lighting equipment and all sorts of filming equipment, but i haven't shot anything because I don't have an ideas.

yeah it really is. i only have premiere at home. work on Avids all day and then go home to do "da real shit" and uhgggggggg. Wish I could afford a proper avid rig.
Premiere is awful for color correction, to say the least.
I'm just too lazy to use anything else right now.

I was using a Lumix but I've also kind of used a t2i. Both are really nice tripod cameras. Hate changing the exposure through menus though.

i like avid, it is clunky but i trained on it so i'm used to it. i use it at work. premiere at home. h8 FCP.
also i'm no critic.

I'm working on making my first short. college students are the worst at being reliable. shooting on 7d.
also my advanced film class has a really disappointing script, but we get to shoot on the RED EPIC so many K's

we shoot on red at work occasionally. shit is so boss. wish i could afford to go red. 7d is fine for making little shorts and stuff but it's pretty limited. problem is that everybody has 7d now and everything is starting to look the same. i tend to shoot super flat and underexposed. i can't stand those oversaturated images that most people make with them. if you want my $0.02, shoot super flat and underexpose by a stop or two, as long as you have the time to play with it in post. can make some much nicer, more film-like images that way.

after my roommate passed I gave his laptop to his family and was no longer able to do the fun kinds of editing I had grown to enjoy. earlier this year I invested in a more sophisticated hd pocket camera, but all I have is an ipad and I can't do much as far as editing on it. I recently got a job, so I finally have money rolling in and will soon be investing in a laptop, probably a mac.
does anyone have any suggestions for good editing software that would give me a fair amount of options without being too ridiculously expensive? sony vegas is really the only software I've used to edit videos so I don't know much. again, it wouldn't be for anything spectacular, just fun little random samples of life so it doesn't have to be crazy. I just enjoyed being able to layer videos and apply effects only to certain things like people's faces and fun things like that.
