New Camcorder

I've recently gotten hold of a new HD camcorder thanks to my friend Emma. I've been kicking around some ideas for a long time that would require one and, after much deliberation, I finally took the plunge.

Before I get to producing anything y'know, good with it, I've got to get the hang of actually using the damn thing, hence the above video. Rather than being all precious and secretive, I've decided to just keep filming and uploading any old stuff as practice. What did I film first? Well, just whatever bits & bobs were lying around the room. The shots that don't wobble look hella like photos, which is pretty awesome. The footage is maybe a little dark / dull though. I expect I'll be able to get way nicer stuff when I work out what the hell I'm doing.

I chucked in some music from The Clangers and, in combination with the constant zooming, it's made the video look like a cheesy screensaver. Hmm. Baby steps.
