how to have anormorphic (2.39:1) on HVX 200

Hi,

I am a film student and I'm gonna shoot a music video soon. I would like to shoot it on anamorphic (2.39:1) but we don't have enough budget to rent a lens. I would like to know if there is any setting on the Panasonic HVX 200 that allows you to know where the two "black bars" are going to be if I want it to be anamorphic. If not I would like to know how much gaffer tape I should put on the monitor and on the LCD Screen. I might use either a small portable monitor or a regular size monitor.

Please send me a reply as soon as possible.

Thanks a million

Yoshanka

Sure- create the matte as you want in your editing software. Output back to the camera and then put clear tape over or draw on the viewfinder with erasable pen- I'd go the former where the bars are. It's low tech but it works like a charm. Then you'll of course matte off the rest in post.

Just a thought but why do all film students want to shoot anamorphic? Must be something about that widescreen epic feel makes you feel more movie like... :)

Hi,
Thanks for replying so soon. I'm sorry but I didn't quite understand what you meant. How much clear tape should I put?

Yeah anamorphic makes it so cool too. We've always wanted to make movies and now that we have the possibility we just wanna dive right in. Most of us actually would prefer directly shooting in 35mm rather than beginning with dv and working our way up:)

I mean you would actually put horizontal strips of tape on the LCD monitor of the camera where the matte bars from your test footage fall. Then you will know where they'll be for new footage as you shoot.

That would be quite an expensive way to learn. If you can make a good movie in DV you can make a good movie in 35mm. Bad film looks no nicer than bad DV...
