another Band Video

This was shot over the weekend at a local bar, lighting was sporadic and dark at times. Shot with 4 A1's and two HV20's all at 24f. We are beginning to market this kind of demo product to local bands for use on their websites and promotional stuff...

mix/match footage

Hey Nathan,

Nice stuff. Any problems working with XHA1 and HV 20 footage in post?

Not really, I run the HV20 stuff through compressor that takes the extra frames out (reverse telcine) and gives me a straight 24 frame HDV file that matches the A1's.

Interesting.

I like shooting 30F on my XHA1 and I've been tempted to get the HV20 as a B camera, but the HV20 doesn't have 30F so I figured I couldn't mix them. The new HV30 has 30F, though... I'm wondering if I should just switch to shooting 24P. I'm not shooting any high speed motion. Hmmmn.

I was very cautious at first about shooting in 24f, but we made the switch so we could incorporate the Hv20's and I'll never go back. People are so used to seeing the stutter in most of what they watch that they automatically associate it with professionalism and film. It ends up being 30 in the end on your Dvd's (unless your using blu-ray) but it just sets it apart from the amateurish video look. You do have to adjust your shooting style (no fast pans unless your following an object or person) but at the same time it gives you some more liberties because you can get away with sloppy moves that would look terrible if it wasn't 24f.
