First Indy feature shot with Panasonic AG-HVX200 HD camcorder

DP Robert Pitman uses Panasonic's AG-HVX200 camcorder to capture a micro feature film entitled, "Samaritan."
Star Circle Pictures of Virginia Beach, VA, recently completed production on a micro feature called "Samaritan." It is among the first projects shot with Panasonic’s new AG-HVX200 P2 handheld camcorder.

The HVX200 combines HD and SD formats, multiple recording modes, variable frames rates, and sold state P2 recording memory.

The camcorder offers full bandwidth, contribution quality HD with independent intra-frame encoding, 4:2:2 color sampling, and less compression.

Currently in post-production, the feature entailed 81 set-ups over the course of only two evenings of location shooting. Star Circle plans to exhibit the approximately 30-minute short via HD streaming media stations in theaters in addition to presenting it at festivals.
