So I bought an iMac with Logic and Final Cut Pro X, I also purchased 2 Sony HXR MC2000E's....and a small lighting pack from ebay just to get me started. I already own a few studio quality mics. I'm not going to buy mics a while as I want to get proper ones not cheap ones
What I want to get into is doing promo videos for bands and artists over here in Ireland not pop videos irish music and smaller productions...Obviously need some practice first! Getting the hang of Final Cut quickly enough and spent all day today filming random things and running after the dog at home!
I also need to buy some tripods any advice. I have my first project in a few weeks doing a 25 minute promo for a 4 piece band. I've done it on the basis that I'll spend as much time as possible videoing and editing and they will give me a couple of hundred as a token gesture if they decide to use it...if it's terrible they don't have to use anything. I'm going to track the video from their new album I think this would be the best way to achieve good sound quality and be easier for me taking several takes of them playing. Then do the interviews obviously live...
I'd like some advice for a beginner if anyone has some! Forums are a great source I always think so I'll be here to stay I think! ANy other resource links would be fantastic.
