Hi, A friend and I (both music composers/engineers) want to make up a couple of mock ads to present our music to potential clients. Its all very well using other peoples ads for this purpose but we really feel this completely dilutes our work and ideas. Theres also various limitations working like that. Were both expereinced in our relative fields of music composing and engineering and we work with Avid/Digidesigns Pro tools and can facilitate syncing to film and all the other aspects around post audio work.
What are the essentials we would need for our project? We think the Panasonic DVX 100 A or B would be a good choice. For recording audio we would like to use the cameras internal tracks via external mics. Weve also considered lights, monitors, and maybe something to stabilise the camera. The steady cam is way out of our price range but wonder if there is something else much cheaper? Apart from various incindentals we cant think of anything else.?
If anyone could suggest what we havent thought of and add anything you feel we would have to get, or maybe an alternative to the Panasonic.
