What Camera do you use?

We own and operate these cameras: Panasonic AG AF100, Canon T2i, a bunch of Canon VIXIA cameras, some older DV cameras like the Canon GL2. Depending on the job we rent other equipment from friends.

What type of projects do you do?

Mostly videos intended for Web archiving or distribution, live or VOD streaming.

What do you editing software do you use? Mac or PC? Tower/Laptop?

Final Cut!

Do you use lights? If so what kind?

We have a bunch of light kits ranging from our "Home Depot Kit" to a Lowell Elemental kit. We have other toys too. A mini dolly for DSLRs and light camcorders that runs on skate wheels. A mini jib crane. A bunch of step-ladders hacked to support tripod heads. A hacked MiniDV-Steadicam.

Are you looking to meet new people and have some fun?

My dream is to start a local hackspace for video producers. As in: Can you hack the lenses off a consumer CMOS camcorder and mount a used Fujinon video ENG lens made for 1/2" CCDs?
