What's the best look you've ever gotten from a GL2?

In several months I'm beginning production on a new short. I'm really happy with the script, it's the best short I've ever written, and everyone seems to really like it. I think it has the potential to be a really great short, sort of a really good Twilight Zone episode.

I want to make it look...wait for it...as much like film as possible.

I own a GL2 but am thinking about renting a DVX100b for the shoot. I really don't have the cash, but I want this to look as great as possible. How much can I do in post, with After Effects or Final Cut Pro for that look?

Have you ever achieved a really fantastic look with a GL2?

Lyndon,

On this forum there are some terrific trailers shot with the gl2, just search for them. Your camera will be fine. With the gl2 you already know what you are doing as apposed to shooting with a camera you haven't used.
have faith in the gl2. Practice getting the look you want long before the actual shoot!! I made that mistake Once and hopefully not again!!
