Formerly: DIY Filmmaker Sujewa Blog - Werewolf Ninja Philosopher and other 2018 movies! DIY = Do-It-Yourself. DIY film = low budget indie films made and distributed by the filmmaker. This is a blog by filmmaker Sujewa Ekanayake. 2018 films - Werewolf Ninja Philosopher, Breakthrough Weekend, Brooklyn Fantastic, Agnes the Alien. Blog active since 2006. Since 4/28/18 blog is called NEW ART FILM (since 2018), see post below for more re: the new direction.
Since P2 cards cost around $1000 or so (so I hear) in order to shoot full HD, that would make both HDV shot on tape/MiniDV & Standard Definition MiniDV the new 16 MM. HD on P2 cards would be the new 35 MM - at least for the ultra-low budget end of the indie filmmaking world.
I definitely will not be shooting on full HD on P2 cards anytime soon.
But HDV on tape might be an easy step up from regular/SD MiniDV. However, I am still fine with SD MiniDV.
