Hello there all!!
I just stepped out of the arrogant world of feature film after a 11 year stint, and have gotten the DV and HDV bug.
I want to get into shooting music videos, and have started practicing by going to various venues in my area, and shooting numerous bands for free ( or for a couple of beers!), just so I can get used to the movement of various band members moving around, and working around the fluctuating lighting effects.
I'm using the Canon XL2 to shoot with and the shotgun mic it's equiped with for the audio, with some pretty surprising results. The audio on the XL2 is pretyy darn good, and for free, a band is not yet complained. It's something that they can post on their Myspace sites. But I was wondering if anyone has any helpful hints on shooting bands with one camera.
