Hi

I wonder if anyone can give me some leads regarding something I'm trying to set up. I've been involved in a project to document dances from the Himalayan region for some time - we're using Sony HD cameras for the main work - and wanted to see if I could get some footage from within the dance itself by using some sort of lightweight camera possibly mounted on a mask worn by one of the dancers. I've no experience of this field and wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction in terms of the kinds of equipment available and/or any other sources of information relating to the field that might be helpful for me in gettig to grips with the various issues.

Thanks in advance

Don´t thinkthere is something that small and light around really. Remember reading the article for "ALI" in the american cinematographer where they had combined two lipstick pal cameras to accommodate the 2,35:1 they were shooting. Don´t know all facts though. Do a Google :-)
