Camera For A Youth Filmmaker

Hello! If you don't know me, my name is Maddie and I'm a fifteen year old filmmaker based in Vermont. This winter I made my first short film, Bake-Off. It's been met with great success; from showing before a premier in a theater to winning Best Emerging Director at the Scout Film Festival. I have a few ideas for other things I'd like to create, but when I do them, I want to do them to the best of my ability. The camera I used to film Bake-Off is a bit glitchy, and sporadically stops filming. I was forced to watch the camera constantly to restart filming. In any future projects, I'd like to put my full focus on directing, and not have to worry about a glitchy camera. This will hopefully help me work towards a new one!
