Director Ruspoli shoots 'FIX' with Panasonic AG-HVX200

Director Tao Ruspoli and wife, actress Olivia Wilde are featured in “FIX,” a new scripted documentary inspired by true events.

Shot with Panasonic’s AG-HVX200 P2 HD camcorder in August, “FIX”, which takes the audience on a one-day voyage through a myriad of worlds in Los Angeles, has already been submitted to the 2008 Sundance Film Festival.

“FIX” is the second feature produced by the Los Angeles Filmmakers' Cooperative (LAFCO), a mobile production company founded by Ruspoli. LAFCO is based out of a fully equipped school bus outfitted with HVX200s and Panasonic DVX100 digital video camcorders, three editing stations, a portable library, a screening room and room to sleep five.

“FIX,” shot in the first person by the actors in the film, journeys from Beverly Hills to Watts through 24 hours, as documentary filmmakers Bella and Milo, played by Wilde and Ruspoli, race to get Milo's brother Leo, played by Shawn Andrews, from jail to rehab before 8 p.m.

Director Ruspoli shot “FIX” continuously throughout August, working around Wilde’s TV production schedule and ultimately covering 36 locations in 16 days. Ruspoli purchased an HVX200 several months before the start of the shoot and spent considerable time with his LAFCO colleagues shooting dozens of music videos and trial documentary-style footage, acclimating himself to the P2 tapeless workflow.

The Best Deconstruction of a 4K Shoot You'll Ever Read
With higher resolutions and larger HD screens, wide shots using very wide lenses can be a problem because they allow viewers to see that infinity doesn’t quite resolve into perfect sharpness.
