Thanks a lot man. I am currently working on a short film about a psychotic girl. It features a guy wearing a freaky animal mask.

Yeah, the Canon HV20 has been a really good choice for me within a reasonable price range. The quality of the image is amazing and it has some nice 25p/24p (not real progressive), that mimics an amazing film look. There aren't that many manual controls on the camera, but enough if you're a beginner. I recommend you (and everyone else interested) to check out this link, http://www.dvinfo.ne...hv30-hv20-hv10/ . It was really helpful to me in making my decision. Also, look into the Canon HV30.

i've been learning some things about filmmaking in media class the last couple of months. i recently made some short commercials featuring two cute little birdies we bought from a farm. im not all that into making films though, but it's pretty fun.

what do you have in mind?

do you have a digicam? DV? cellphone?

you create mini videos and edit it through imovie or windows movie maker :D

post them in youtube!


I mean, I used to like to take clips from video games or something
and fool around with them on Windows Movie Maker.
This was years ago.
I have a Mac now, and have downloaded Final Cut Express.
I really just want to sit down and think of something to write and record,
or just go out and record whatever the hell I want and maybe throw some music on it/edit it.
I don't have a good camera yet, except this really old video camera that uses tape but the quality of it isn't too good.
I want to get a legit one but I don't have the money right now. At all.
And I need to have the discipline to sit down and learn things anyway, which I don't really have.
I guess I'm just too lost at where to start =/

16:9, AWB, Vegas + After Effects + Magic Bullet. And a lack of a solid plot.


i seriously can't get over how awesome your 'city' video looks. very professional for a budget HD cam. teach me your ways once I get the same cam.

Have you guys seen Synecdoche, New York?

Stars Philip seymour hoffman

From Wiki:

Caden, the main character, is a theatre director. After the inception of his new play, he discovers that his various autonomic functions are shutting down one at a time. The movie goes into themes such as the nature of family, of home, and of male-female relationships, all while blurring reality and representation in a nature consistent with the earlier work of Charlie Kaufman.
