I registered on here a few days ago but this is my first post.

I've just graduated with a degree in animation here in the UK this summer, specialising in CGI, but over the past two years or so I started to lean much more towards live action and film and away from animation. Got experience of DV and editing whilst at university using their cameras, lights and audio equipment.

I got an XL2 just this past week. No other equipment at the moment (the camera itself pretty much wiped me out!) besides a Velbon DV7000 tripod which i've been testing out and seems pretty good and solid.

If anyone in the UK is interested, i got my XL2 and the tripod from my local Jessops. There RRP was 3300, I'd seen one for less online, and they agreed to take their price down a bit, and knocked a tenner off the tripod as well!

I'm hoping to make a start on some music videos if possible but we'll see where it takes me. Other than that, maybe a few short projects to get the necessary experience and fine-tuned skills.

Very interested in the whole 'cine-look' subject, and seeing what others are making, so i'll continue to keep an eye on the forum. From what i've seen so far it looks extremely helpful!
