So I've been into photography for a while but have caught a bit of bug when it comes to wanting to do some video.

So I have a 5D mk II as you can see from my sig, but that's pretty much it except I am working on a DIY dolly system at the moment but what other things should I acquire of articles should I read for starting out in video?

Oh yea and I've downloaded Magic Lantern (haven't loaded it yet though) and I've checked out the thread on colour profiles for CineStyle etc. Watched tonnes of videos with examples of great videography that I would like to replicate somehow as well so I have a really good vision of what I want to do in my head.

really hard to teach or give advice. best way to learn is by doing

honestly watching other people is great but it doesnt help if you personally have limited experience shooting. you will develop an eye over time and learn what camera moves and types of shots work best in various situations

Do a search for stillmotion on vimeo and YouTube you can learn so much.

Both are great to learn. Hope to see some of your future projects here.

yea i would avoid wedding videos unless you are a very seasoned videographer with plenty of experience. totally different style of shooting and not something a beginner needs to look at when trying to learn in my opinion. start with the basics first then expand your knowledge. it takes time to learn so dont try and rush it

Best advice is to get out and start shooting. Shoot anything and nothing at first, just to get the feel and pace of DSLR video. You'll learn pretty quickly what you need help on, at which point you can come back and ask more specific questions.

Not trying to do wedding videos, really just wanting to make a short film. I have a story line in mind and am in the middle of making a dolly. I do have a Marantz recorder for high quality sound recording outside of my camera, but other than that I don't have much else. My plan is to make or buy a jib somewhere down the line but not the immediate future.
