Newbie needs some advice please

Hey all,

My name is Ben. Just about to get myself a nice new DV cam and could use a little advice. But I am not just here to be an info leach. I worked 7 years in Hollywood as a Voice Over casting director / teacher / audio engineer and have great perspective and advice (if needed) on any voice work needed for a project. Feel free to email me with any questions, or if you need good, reliable voice actor's names/agents, I can help in the L.A area for free.

OK, the project I am devoting my life to atm is a documentry on the Marsh in Arcata,CA (my current home). A project of waste water management that is world renouned in it's environmently friendly aspect. It has become a home or migratory stop to over 230 species of birds and many other critters. I hope to inspire communities throught the world to adopt this method of waste management. Therefor I am aiming for theatrical release internationally (aim high right? lol) It won't be your typical informational documentry, if all goes as planned. To best describe what I am trying for would be Ron Fricke (Baraka, shot on 70mm) type cinematography with about 30 minutes of info/interveiws. I will be shooting timelaps, using slow motion, and all will be nature shots. I am admittedly clueless when it comes to todays cameras and filming.

My biggest question to start off is... which camera? I have about 7000 to invest for the cam and another 2000 for acessories. I have read a bit about the cameras in this price range and am leaning towards the Panasonic HVX200. Seams to have all my needs covered except I might need (or do i?)a stronger zoom. I would apreciate any and all advice / input. If anyone thinks another camera would be more appropriate please let me know.

Thanks all,

Ben Jacob

Welcome aboard (H)DVInfo.net, Ben, good to have you with us!

I've copied your post to our documentary forum. More people will actually see
your question there since this is just an introduction forum. I've editted your
post slightly for a better fit in that forum.

Good luck!

Hello to all.

My name is Jay Villa from Houston, TX. I run a mobile DJ company full time. We are getting ready to offer videography to the services we currently offer.

Thanks!

Video Editing Schools

As many of you may or may not know I am taking a trip to Africa in the spring of 07. I am taking a year off before going to college to save money and prepare for this trip. I live in Victoria BC and I was wondering if any of the people from Vancouver or from Victoria on this site could perhaps give me some information on a couple schools in Victoria that I could take classes on Video editing so I can become competitive in this business when I return from filming the trip.

Thanks
Jesse

I live in South Africa and attend CityVarsity Film Production School (www.cityvarsity.co.za)

At the moment our first year full-time syllabus is made up of:

Directing
Editing
Camerawork And Lighting
Scriptwriting
Script Analysis
Visual Literacy
Media Communication
History Of Art
Film Appreciation

In the second and third year, you can major in one of the first three. I'm going into Editing.

Majoring in Editing will get you skilled in:

Premiere (8 workstations with 2GBram and 2tb worth of storage space each, four DVCPRO Decks for converting DV to High Res SDI)
AVID (2 AVID Unity systems)
Media100
Boris
Combustion
After Effects

There's a guy from New Jersey in my class and apparently the pricing per year for this high-end institution is the equivalent to the fee at a community college. So perhaps consider spending two years here, I can guarantee you that you'll save a lot of cash by studying here.

Good Rental Shop in Salt Lake City or Park City?

I'm from Canada but will be filming a wedding in Park City, Utah this June. I'm looking for a reliable shop where I can rent gear from. Can anyone suggest a shop to phone in either Salt Lake City or Park City?

Hello from Louisville!

I've been lurking around here for about a year... thought I'd introduce myself.

I'm a commercial photographer in Louisville KY, and have shot stills for advertising for about 20 years... from 8X10 film to 22MP digital on hasselblad bodies... in the studio with sets to location.

In the past 6 months I've gotten into shooting HD video for some of my clients... mainly for projection at trade shows.... using the same commercial lighting technics I use for stills.

I have a dof adapter to give a higher end look to my footage, and can't seem to live without it.

I'm in pre-pro on a documentary of artists, and hope to find a buyer when it's complete.

Thanks to everyone for all the threads and replies to just about anything on this site! I've absorbed allot!
