It's All Wide From Here On In
So we have acquired our last missing piece of equipment, a Panasonic AG-LA7200G. If you're wondering, that's an anamorphic wide angle lens. That means that Defective Man! will be in true 16:9 widescreen, we won't have the fake black bars on top and bottom, we won't have any compression to make the picture quality degrade, no NO, it will truly be in widescreen. I think this will be a great aid once we get to the "looking for distribution" stage of this project. However, at the current moment, we're no where even near that stage! Here's a re-cap of what we've got to make this thing:
-Panasonic DVX-100A (soon with a true 16:9 wide angle lens)
-Azden shotgun mic with good quality boom and hock mount and the accessories
-Smith Victor lighting kit
-iMac to edit
-Trent Haaga & Monique Dupree & a host of other talent
So now we need to get our locations DOWN and we're good to go!
