Hi there Got a new MacBook last week and now have to buy video recording equipment to make small videos which I wish to put on the web. I'm trying to start a campaign for a small charity and use a variety of audio-visual resources in order to make it more attractive. We are going to start Podcasting with the inbuilt features of Garageband and the built in mike from the Macbook, but we also want to make short videos to put online which will be mini-documentaries. We all have to start somewhere I just need some help in doing that - my team are full of ideas. We just need a little hardware/software advice. Ok - I've no experience of video production so after about a week of surfing the web and getting increasingly confused about where to start I'm posting here. If anyone can supply me with a good link to a site that could answer the sorts of questions I will need answering - thank you! Our budget is variable - we can stretch to as much as it really needs, but we want to keep prices down as I will be working with a charity where money is scarce. What is important is that we can - record sound from events so that it is fairly clear - upload video to the computer and edit it (we have iMovie with the computer. I understand FinalCutExpress may be a better option) - film in fairly low-light situations - add extra audio tracks - make the video look "professional" so that it doesn't detract from the message we are trying to put out (there is nothing worse than amateurish shakes or poor audio for getting people to switch off) Ok - I'm sure these questions make me seem like a fool, but any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
