This can be a place for people to show off their videos that don't have to be paintball related, and we can also discuss video stuff. Feel free to ask for tips, get constructive criticism, show off your videos/reels, or your setup(camera/s, programs, etc)
I'm currently using a Panasonic HXV200, and running Adobe Premiere and After Effects 6.0/CS4/CS5 depending on where I'm editing.

I've been fortunate enough to have had the chance to work on a couple feature films and I've done quite a bit for the company I work with now. The films were "Rocket Science" and "Live Free or Die Hard". I was a production intern on the first and a Locations Assistant on Die Hard.
My favorite thing to work on is editing though. Here's a trailer that I made last year for a contest. The goal was to mash two films together to make a trailer for a third. I chose Blacula and The Net and mashed them to make a horror film.

Cool idea for a thread, I hope it works out. I'd love to see some other peoples work and would love to show off my own when we get something completed.

How much money are you looking to spend Bear? DSLRs like the Canon t2i aren't too expensive and shoot really great pictures. My buddy and I have also used his t1i for video and its not bad either.

Be a sponge and soak it all in. You'd be amazed at how knowledge gained in one job or asset helps you on another.

Right now I can't spend anything. We're working with a friends Canon ZR500. It's consumer quality and standard definition, but with quality MiniDV tapes and doing the lighting right, we're not getting horrible results. We're currently working on a shoot schedule for a short acoustic guitar music video for a friend of a friend, and once that's shot I can put together some shorts and post for you all to see. I never though about using a DSLR for shooting, but it makes a lot of sense. I have a Canon xTi but it doesn't have video. It's be great to use the DSLR because it's the cheapest option I've found for being able to use different lenses and have the manual control over focus, exposure, etc. Only issue is audio but most of our shoots don't use the live audio anyway. Thanks for the idea!

Some friends and I are starting a small TV/film studio in Chicagoland.
We are into post production on our first TV series pilot...it is 'Hard Science Fiction.'
I have been doing the production design as well as acting.
I got to build 2 spacesuits....
Here is our teaser trailer.
And a production diary on the spacesuits here...
Guess which one I am....
I am a Disposable Hero...I get handed a job, I do the job. Shiny?

Anyway, it's not much and it'd be more impressive if I hadn't been following a tutorial step by step, but here it is.
Hopefully I will get some more stuff ready for upload soon.

From the looks of it, you do dang good work. Plus your technology side looks pretty convincing too.
One thing I would suggest is, KEEP IT REAL. I hate it when a show starts off good, but looses its realism in science to acting and drama. It looks great so far, and I like the theme. Would love to see more.

We put our glass to the sky and lift up. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya. So raise a pint for the people that aren't with us. And live tonight 'cause you can't take it with ya...

we made this one in like 25 minutes, with ten minutes of editing.
