MOJO HD’s ‘The Circuit’ shot with Panasonic P2 camcorders
MOJO HD, the all-HD Web channel, recently launched its first Web-only series, “The Circuit,” shot entirely with Panasonic’s solid-state AG-HVX200 P2 HD camcorders.
Manhattan-based studio Creative Bubble developed and is shooting, editing and designing the new HD series. The company partnered with Scott Broock and Emery Wells, creators of the series, which takes an irreverent look at the world of technology. Each episode runs eight to 10 minutes.
The production is using two Panasonic HVX200s in 1080i, one in the studio for green screen, the other in the field for acquisition. Editing is on Apple’s Final Cut Pro. Uncompressed HD QuickTime files are delivered to MOJO HD each week via a FireWire drive.
Panasonic recently introduced its new AG-HVX200A, an enhanced version of the HVX200. The 1/3in 3-CCD handheld P2 HD/DV camcorder features improved progressive imagers, a DSP that increases sensitivity while lowering noise and smear, and a new 13X zoom lens.
