I've had the camera going on 3 years, and I have over 100 DV cassettes as we speak, 1 - 89 of them are numbered and catalogued, in Excel, the rest waiting for a spare moment. I always keep my original film, and the edited film goes back on tape, sometimes several versions of the edited film, before and after soundtrack, voiceover etc. Sometimes the edited film goes on the remains of a tape with raw film of the same subject/place, sometimes I have tapes just for 'final' versions. Some of the film goes back to 1997, as I have put my old analog film onto mini DV as well.
Some tapes are ongoing if I am filming a place round the year or whatever.
My desk looks very like Marc's
I am starting to save project files now, with the relevant avi files, onto DVD, if the raw film will fit. (2 DVDs per project?...3?...) Anything I think will be worth tweaking or reworking later.
