Recent work & hands on footage shot on the pocket camcorder Panasonic HX-DC1:
I wanted to do something a little different, having worked to create animatics and 3D animations, I have been waiting to test out a pocket camcorder purchased a few months ago - this is personal choice, not for the studio, but I wanted something that could fit a smaller budget and could slip into my pocket and have decided to post up the results - I like to see videos from video equipment and figured I might as well upload my own for people to get a feel of this device from - its the Panasonic HX-DC1, been about a 12 - 18 months now but features a great zoom function. The footage for this clip was taken along the UK coastline at nearly minus 3 degrees and very blustery winds which made for a difficult experience - especially since my tripod would not even stand fast. But if you do not suffer for your art then you've not put 100% in right?
The project it was shot for was an awareness video regrading a book on catamaran sail racing - year on year, many of the races happened at this location.
Hope you enjoy watching!
