I am leaving school for good at the end of the summer term and some friends and I want to make one last film together as we have been making them over the last year and a half at school. We are planning on filming a documentary about 2 of my friends cycling from John o Groats to Lands End (This is in the UK by the way) a distance which will total around 1000 miles by small roads on the bike staying at various campsites in tents along the way and its all done for charity. The idea is to film a bit of the build up and then basically the entire journey which will probably take about 2 1/2 weeks max. I basically need to create a list of equipment I might need so as to get a real budget together. So far I have: Panasonic HDC TM300 My friend has a large van with a sliding side and back door which we can film out of. I have two seperate cheap tripods which do the job A wide angle lens for the panasonic Reflector However these are the things I think I will need: I would like to rent/borrow/buy/steal! a Canon 500d/550d/5d/7d to get some really nice depth of field etc. and great low light quality Two small weatherproof cameras (SD due to budget) which will attempt to record all day from the front of the bikes (Either on the face or facing the road or maybe the riders would alternate who would have the cameras each day) These would essential have to have really long battery lifes or are connected to a switchable battery pack. Lappel mics and some sort of superior mics to the camera mics A 12V to mains plug convertor so we can have the camera plugged in the whole time in the car Bike spares and repair kit (won't need help on this on this forum!) A nice light for outside use and low light use in/out of the car and at the campsites. Hopefully not to yellow! Batteries, Batteries, Batteries + SD Cards Maybe some homemade rigs for the camera to get some arty bike shots If you have any experience with using any of the required equipment or think I should add something to the list please do tell me! I've started the preparation early so that I can try and stay on top of things! Thanks for the help.
