Pitch my idea for a At the Movies style student run show to the Media Entertainment Guild yesterday and got a pretty strong response. A good few peeps interested and it looks like I'll be able to shoot a pilot next week (which is my spring break).
I checked out a lighting kit tonight which happened to be the very last night I could before break. But I'll have to use my old SD hard drive handy cam. I use it for all my videos but the picture quality isn't too hot. My other option was renting the last available mini DV handy cam. No thanks. So I'll borrow my roommate camera which...I'm sure what it is, but it's HD...I think.
The set will just be a community room here in the dorms. Probably no background, but my editing guy will add some graphics. I'm going to use both cameras for coverage and in the future I hear there's a multi-camera TV studio for student use. If this is true I've shit my pants in the future the moment I see it with my own two eyes.
I'll put up the pilot when it's shot of course. I might also be a actor in a couple projects soon too. One's a school orientation video. The other is a skit about a public bathroom brawl. I'll be playing a "bro", my toughest role yet. Looking like a pretty good spring break to me.
