new one...sorry I've been bad with updating this!!
Q: Are you shooting digital or film? And, if digital, are you shooting HD? How did you come to your final decision on shooting format?
A: We'll be shooting on miniDV. The initial reason was simply because I own 2 miniDV cameras and wanted to spend the budget on other things! I own a Sony TRV-900 and Canon XL-1. Since that decision though, I've read about the film, Broken, (www.whatisbroken.com) and seen what they've done with miniDV and it looks amazing!! That totally reinforced my decision to shoot on miniDV. I am curious about HD and want to eventually try it out, but HD's not going anywhere so I'll wait it out a bit...plus there are hardware considerations for HD in terms of my editing/fx studio and really don't have the time to see what upgrades I may need to take. So that's it! Btw, if anyone knows any good sites about tips and stuff when shooting with miniDV, send them over!!!
