Shooting a Movie/Flim on DigiBeta Format
Posted 01 April 2009 - 08:36 AM
I think all of you must have already guessed the 'Lame Questions' coming your way in this post.
Situation at my end is that we are a group of friends and we have this amazing idea/story for a movie/film and like many others we are short on funds. Infact we`ll be investing ourselves in this movie.
I want to know if we Shoot whole movie/film on DigiBeta format - what are the following steps to get the Film Like Feel and what if later somehow we are able to arrange display on BIG SCREEN (Cinema) what impact DigiBeta format would have ??
I hope my question is clear - since this is my first post and I am not aware of alot of technical details related to this matter, I am hoping to get a bit details simple to understand guidance and suggestions.
P.S. - are there any movies shot on DigiBeta Format ??? and is DigiBeta ' SD ' format ?

Yes, it is a SD format, so perhaps it would be worthwhile also checking out the cost of shooting with some HD cameras. The EX3 seems to offer the best bang for bucks and has been used as second camera on some high end TV dramas.
On Digibeta, the DVW970, which shoots progressive frames would be the way to go, unless you happen to access to a Digibeta camera. However, you do need to cost out the extras like a player transfer to your NLE etc., which may be an issue on a low budget.

DigiBeta is "mature" but can be a good start.
