Thank you very much for all the replys! If there are is any more information out there, please by all means, post it. Ptx- My first movie isn't going to be 2 hours. And I have made plenty of movies before with my friend (a senior in highschool) Carlos. He has a lot of equipment (Canon XL1:S, Apple Computer, etc) because his dad makes documentaries or something of the sort. I have made some shorts with him and helped him write scripts and such. I on my own have written 2 feature legnth scripts (non-star wars ) and written many short movies. I have made around 20 shorts (1-10 minutes long). Some were made on my web cam (i am embaressed, yes) and some with some crappy camera my parents own. I'm getting my GL-1 in a bit so I can finally film stuff that's more than 10 feet away from my computer and actualy look good (my webcam can only go so far ). Yes, I do know how much work it takes to set up a movie also... but thanks for your concern.
