Yes, it's amazing how much col stuff we have at our fingertips these days. Totally blew myself away when I first made a realistic lightsaber battle with me and a friend. I hope to make a little something of Tron someday too. If only I had enough people to help, a good bluescreen, and a few costumes.
Hey pal, I hear ya! But cheer up, there are some cheap and not too shabby ways to get yourself started. Of course saving your money is great advice.however if you are comfortable, ask for donations and when you get some "funds" together find a way to get some of these things cheap. You can make your own greenscreen these days for a pretty low amount of cash. Costumes don't always have to be "completely" handcrafted. See if you can do costumes with existing clothes that can be modified. Or perhaps cheap items bought from second hand stores and modified. With a little time and careful planning you can take a shirt and mould it into a costume component of great quality. My motto is "Beat it to fit. Then, paint it to match." Why just today I saw a copy of Adobe Premiere 5.1 Mac version (complete package) for sale on Ebay for a buy it now price of $19.99. It may not be the most up to date Premiere but at this price its a steal and it still will work for most editing tasks we all need.
Here's some stuff to inspire you...
Now..Go forth and make movies!
