I'm looking to make a video that's filmed mostly in the dark outside. I was wondering if it would be better to film in the night and how I could tweak my camera to do that. Or if I should film in the day and add some effects to make it look night, and how could I do that also. I'm Editing using Sony Vegas Pro 9.0 and my camera a Panasonic HDC-SD20 recording AVCHD and sound is Dolby Digital 5.1 Creator. This is going to be my first short film and any tips for best quality video and sound would be greatly appreciated. I have the bare minimum for equipment and a low budget.
Any and all help is greatly Appreciated.
