Hello

Hi all,

Only recently joined (found) this forum but its great to know there's somewhere to get the answers to all your questions.

I'm 24 and live in the UK. I bought an XL1 about a year ago under the pretense of making a film. At the time i had no idea what to do and still don't. All i knew is that i wanted a good Camera to give me the flexibility to make films. The thing that really swung it for me in regards to getting the XL1 was the interchangable lenses, i was clear in my mind that no matter how good you are at making a film if you film it with a camcorder it'll look like a home movie. Maybe now i realise thats not true but i don't regret buying the XL1 just that i haven't had much chance to use it.

All i have done to date is my mates wedding and i learnt a great deal just from that. My line of work means i can get into airshows to film but what with 11th September last year all the US planes are not flying this year so i've not been to any.

I've played around with filming lightning and keep meaning to film my girlfriend on her horse but because i'm also a keen photographer i prefer to take my 35mm out most of the time (one of the draw backs of the XL1... i'm frightened to take it out anywhere in case it gets damaged... stupid i know).

So at the moment i'm writing a film script and still hoping to film that. So if there are any actors in the Norfolk area (UK) up for a bit of filming let me know.

Nick

Nick,

First of all WELCOME!

Second, I would love to be in your film. I am willing and able to travel, however, I need a plane ticket for myself and my girlfriend. I also would like 2.9 million pounds. Kidding! If you are in New York and want to create some work, let me know. I'm game.

I am working a film script myself and an actor. I just jumped in and I'm swimming about. Currently, working/shooting a short. I own an XL1S.

Anyways, welcome! You came to the right spot to ask questions and have them answered. Its excellent motivation...

To your film!

Cheers!

P.S. Insure the camera, it helps. I've been playing in the water with mine and it's nice to know its somewhat protected.

Hi Nick,

Nice to see another Britt on the board, where you live there is beautiful countryside (the broads), you could make a film about that?

As for insurers, if its for personal use, get it put on as a listed item on your house insurance cost about 10, for pro use, its worth doing a search on the net for business equipment insurance.

All the best from Hampshire, down here in the South.

Goodluck in what you do,

Ed Smith
