JVC GY-HM100 ProHD Camcorder Used to Record Metal Documentary
Filmmaker Marcus De Leon used the JVC GY-HM100 Pro HD camcorder to record “Ebb and Flow: The Misery Signals Story,” a 90-minute documentary about heavy metal band Misery Signals and its 2009 tour throughout Europe, Asia and North America.

Interviews with the band were shot using a GY-HM100 camcorder and tripod and lit with portable, 60-watt clamp lights. De Leon held the camcorder above the crowd with a shotgun mike for concert footage.

“Because of its compact size, I could shoot in very tight spaces, like a concert in the hull of a ship on Paris’ Seine River or inside a van full of passengers,” said De Leon. “It was very unobtrusive when shooting in spontaneous social situations, like backstage parties, where a bigger camcorder might have inhibited people’s natural behavior.”

De Leon transferred his recorded files from two 16 GB SDHC memory cards, each holding almost an hour of 1080/24p footage, to Final Cut Pro 6 on his MacBook. He also stored video files on three external LaCie hard drives.

Deluxe New York will transfer the video to 35 mm prints for film festival release.
