Washington Improv Theater wins 48 Hour HD Filmmaker showdown

The Washington Improv Theater (WIT) won the 48 Hour HD Filmmaker showdown with its fantasy short film, “Multiverse.” It was shot with Panasonic’s handheld, production-quality AG-HVX200 DVCPRO HD camcorder.

The team was awarded an HVX200 camera at the 48HFP end-of-year event at the Cinequest Film Festival in San Jose, CA. All five of the competing teams, including those from Cincinnati, Des Moines, Nashville and San Francisco, were loaned Panasonic HVX200 HD cameras during the event weekend to shoot their HD films. They also received Avid's Mojo Accelerator and HD Xpress software for their participation in the showdown.

The WIT team used the HVX200’s slow motion feature to create otherworldly scenes at an airport and a park in “Multiverse.”

The HVX200 combines multiple high definition and standard definition formats, multiple recording modes and variable frames rates, and the P2 solid state memory recording in a rugged, compact design.
