And is it difficult to learn how to use the equipment and cut the film? I really know nothing about cutting real film, as I’ve been taught on all digital equipment (Canon HD video cameras, Final Cut Pro, AfterEffects). But I do know how to develop still film in the dark room – is it a similar process? Please give me all the information you can. Thanks!
