Festival Report

I recently posted news about an hour-long documentary that I edited--entitled "Sons of War" that was shot on location in Austria, Belgium and Germany. The acquisition format was HDV (1440x1080)using a Sony HVRZ1U. I on-lined and conformed the project in 1920x1080 with Cineform Prospect then exported to HDCam for presentation.

This past weekend, the doc was screened at the festival on a big Harkins Theater screen and it looked FANTASTIC. I saw other entries at the festival that were shot in full 1920x1080 (usually with a CineAlta) and also digitally projected but they simply didn't look as good as ours. I am now fully convinced that a feature shot in HDV and posted with Prospect HD can be released theatrically.

A Big THANKS to the the Two Davids.

Which Festival?

I just noticed that I failed to mention which film festival---it was the 2008 Sedona Film Festival. Our project made the cut from over 1,000 entries.

Congrads, Jim! Sounds like good news to all us little guys when someone can present something made with similar tools at a major festival and have such a reception!

It's our experience too, using the Sony V1. The cost/benefit is really way up there with the ProspectHD workflow. The only gain from what we're doing now, is capturing via the HDMI port for our chroma work. But even the bump up from HDV size to 1920 using CF for the whole workflow, has resulted in very nice final output indeed.

Again, congrads! Keep making good stuff!
