commercial/promo shot with HV20

Here's a link to a short I made with my HV20 for Stanley Furniture:

You need to click the link at the top of the page to watch the clip.

I did not encode it for that website, it's a little fuzzy, and there are a couple artifacts. But you get the gist.

They looped it at a trade show in Las Vegas, too. That was on DVD...

Nice job Jason. I was hoping to see more of Zack....but this works.

Zack actually doesn't exist - just that picture (which I believe is a stock photo they bought).
So, that was our way around it - show the effects of Zack without actually showing Zack...

I felt as though it needed more light. the movement of the cam gave it that "handycam" feel for home video, and i thought that was cool. Not a bad job - investing in a light kit would be worth it. Good job overall!

Thanks, Zach,

A bit of the "dark" look is the encoding they used for that website.
But, yes, it needed more light - looked fine when I shot it though.
I'm learning that the HV20 footage looks a lot darker once it's off the camera, and I've been adjusting how much light I use based on that.

The poor audio quality kills it for me. That is a dead give away to a consumer camera. Audio is 50% of video production, it has that consumer camera feel and look. It needs work all around.

Let me reiterate one more time - the encoding on the website really kills the quality - both for audio and video.

The audio is actually pretty good - I used an Oktava MK012, Mackie Mixer, boom and etc. That's the reason there's any quality to it on the site at all.
