Producing and editing a video
on Feb 28, 2010 at 10:31:57 pm

Hi guys …
I've been posting and reading posts at creative cow for a while … Now, I need help in a situation and I don't know in which forum I should post but as I already have had many help here I decided to make it where I more or less have exchange informations and knowledge.
Last year I took a job for editing a series of videos on food recipes (215 videos) and also did the direction on 25 of them. I did the edition of video and sound, compression for web, click the red icon written "Filme" on the link to watch one of them -
and DVD and I also author the DVD Collection (18). It ended up a good job.
A brazilian Chef (friend of a friend) that works in Italy liked the job and as next year will be celebrated as Friendship Year of Brazil and Italy (I don't know if I could name it that way in english … loll ), he is planning to do the same kind of videos showing the cuisine of Italy and Brazil.
Those videos I've mentioned before were shot DV - SD - 16x9.
Now I'm planning to shoot in HDV. It is not a very wealthy production. Two cameras and a led lighting kit. The producers are estimating 20 days of work in Italy.

My main questions are:

- Does anybody know a person in Italy that could help me on the questions below ?
- I guess it would be better renting the equipment in Italy than rent here in Brazil and transport them. Right ?
- Where could I find the price for that ?
- Should I use card or tape recording ?
- How much would cost me a cameraman for one day of work ?

Thanks guys in advance.

I've worked with Crew Connection. They're good people. I'm sure they can answer your questions. For comparison there are other similar companies such as Crews Control.
