View Full Version : Shot with New HV20 A Preview of 'You Are Here'
2007 December 25th, 21:40
I am glad I got the HV20. So small to handle for so much capability. I take it everywhere, on my bike, wear it like a necklace sometimes,always ready to use. Bought mine 3 weeks ago to shoot a tv documentary we are making called 'You Are Here-The Bay Area'. Would like to hear any comments, questions good or bad. I used not the high def capability but regular DV and exported out of Final Cut in mp4
A Magazine show with an edge.

Not being from the Bay area I found this very informative. I am not much of a critic but I enjoyed it very much. :hv20-smilie03:

They're all sleeping off the Christmas revelry and pudding mate :)
I had a look Richard. Fascinating subject and you did a nice job filming and editing. I enjoyed watching both Pt.1 and Pt.2. I loved the "dragon rider".
Not bad for a pile of junk and a testament to creativity! Plus the vulnerability of not knowing if it would still be there tomorrow. That's real art on the edge.

well thanks so much. i was a little worried that no one would see my first sequence in the series and I really appreciate that you folks took the time to take a look. I will try to follow your lead and do the same for others! After all we are colleagues in a very tough business and need feedback and attention sometimes. Best to you both on the New Year!

the link looks fine to me this morning. contact me if the problem persists. thanks for the alert.
I am apprehensive to put this on any other website as the goal is to make money through a subscription. I have a series of these films I am making (with the HV20 I might add) that are part of an alternative magazine show called You Are Here. Anyone with experience with setting up a website for making money with their work? Or know of anyone who does?

Did you tape this on 24p with HD? I noticed the interview had a different look to it than the footage. Nice work on the audio quality too. Did you use an external mic with a windsock? Were you monitoring the audio with headphones during the shoot? Everytime I shoot near the lake the wind kills my audio (still looking for a decent and affordable mic)
I just bought my HV20 last week and I love it. I have it docked to my Steady-Cam Jr. now and am still trying to get it all balanced out. Will post my footage soon. Nice job on editing too. Cheers~

no this was shot at regular DV through out.
I noticed the interview had a different look to it than the footage.
I had some light problems the morning I shot the interview, it was all over the place with the sun creating havoc. Therefore I 'treated' the interview in Final Cut Pro using the color corrector and sharpen filter to give it a texture and color quality that I found appealing.
Nice work on the audio quality too. Did you use an external mic with a windsock? Were you monitoring the audio with headphones during the shoot? Everytime I shoot near the lake the wind kills my audio (still looking for a decent and affordable mic)
thanks, no I used a wired lavalier mic. and wore headphones. I have one of those beachtek type converter mixers attached to the HV20. Yes I monitored with my ipod headphones :)

Very nice work. I especially liked the twisted frame shots - did you simply mask in post, or shoot dutch angles and rotate the video?
I only have one suggestion - The titles take too long to appear, and don't stay on the screen long enough. To my eye, they would be more effective with a quicker reveal and a longer hold.

This is some good stuff Richard.
