    Hi guys, I didn't know where to post this but yh, I want to be a person that films animals especially insects. I am starting college soon so I need to know what I need to do. The creative bit is here -> over the week I have been starting to video my animals/ insects and I am goig to get a better macro lense. Would this stuff be good to show colleges and that? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TT-Sfg3OnRE

    those are pretty cool
    ..you should definitely show them to the college if you think it might help your application, especially if you're applying for video/multimedia courses..

    ..though i'm not sure if the college will be sufficiently specialised to help and evaluate your nature filming skills in particular, so once you're there you'll probably have to do a lot of independent research, filming and playing around on your own in order to get a good portfolio of animal films and such

    I'm not an expert in the field but I would say that anyone is capable of pointing a camera at a caged insect..

    The real talent and employability of a cameraman to get involved in filming insects would be his ability to film them in the wild, this would require knowledge around an extensive range of equipment such as slow motion cameras. You'd also need plenty of Biological knowledge aswell, being able to truly understand the habitat and behaviour of the insect you wish to film.
