Any helpful tips would be nice!

My name is Jasen and I've just started a company that mainly does Graphic Design: Print and Intactive. Some projects just came up and I have to shoot a couple 3:00m videos. I have a XL1 but for the past year and a half I've mainly used it for personal use. The video I have shot looks pretty good but it's nothing special. Well, I want to push my Canon and make these videos look great. For starters, I'm renting an old western dolly and jib arm but I still need a lot of help. I see tons of XL1's with filters, different lenses, microphones, etc., and that's the kind of info I need!

I'll be shooting mainly outside and interviewing about 10 people. Any helpful tips would be nice!

thanks

Hi Jasen,

The first step should be to try to figure out what it is that you don't know. Try browsing all of the threads on the message boards here, and maybe that will help you to determine what kinds of specific questions you have. There's a lot of information here, check it out and maybe that will give you some ideas.

Yeah, I've been doing that for the past 2 hours but still no real answers for a beginner like me. I know my way around the post production side but when it comes to shooting, well, I'm just a baby.

What I really need is someone to tell me what they used to have a succeful piece. And then where to buy all the goodies.

"Where to Buy" is easy... see my thread on that at the top of the forum listing. Go to http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?s=&threadid=22

-- applies to accessories as well as cameras. Hope this helps,
