Hello everyone. My brother Matthew and I just wrapped our second ever music video on Saturday.

The band are Blue Coma from the UK, about to release their debut E.P.
We shot in a warehouse in Herefordshire, UK.

We used the Panasonic HVX200 and captured live straight into Final Cut Pro via Firewire onto RAID 1 Drives and backed up periodically. There were occasional errors with capturing, but we think this is down to the Drives going into 'standby'. We shot at 720p.

We had three Arri redheads andmam KinoFlo DivaLite 400. We went for a very backlit silhouette look.
This was our first time shooting with this camera and are very pleased with the results so far.

Here are a few production stills and screen grabs from Final Cut Pro.

Assistant Director: Samantha Riley.
Special Thanks to: Cue Media Ltd. James Bennett & VMJ Services.

The simple answer is we didn't have any! The person who we had loaned the camera from had just bought it second hand quite cheaply but without the P2 cards.

For our situation, capturing live straight into FCP suited us quite well - no need to stop shooting to unload video from cards etc. Being in a relatively confined space meant being tethered to a laptop wasn't really an issue. We had a long BNC running from the camera to the directors monitor anyway.
