Music video in Pal land 24p or 25p

Hi chaps

I am soon to embark on a music video shoot for my brother and cannot decide whther to go 24p or 25p. We are in the UK and I do undertsand the issue of shutter speed and 50hz lighting etc.

If I shoot 25p and then ultimately need 24p I can slow the video down I guess but do I then need to pitch shift the audio? I may also use my HV20 as a b cam or for deep DOF shots which only shoots 25p. I guess I am just concerned that 24p is more widely acceptable than 25p.

All thoughts welcome
Cheers

Shoot 25p. Edit 25p. Render to 25p. If you want to distibute in 60hz countries then just take your final rendered file (video and audio) back into your editor, re-interpret it as 24p then drop it on a 24p timeline and render it out again. There may be an easier way to do this with other software/utilities by just changing the file flags or metadata, but in either case the difference in speed is so negligible that you shouldn't need to pitch shift.

Stick to 25p throughout as John recommends.

There's no perceptible difference in terms of 'the film look' and if you ever need 24p, you can render it out again as 24p from the 25p master and there's no need to change the music at all.
