Dz Driving - Mini-DV footage required
I may be needing a few seconds of miniDV footage for a video we’re making later in the year.
Scenic highlights of the places below that are clearly them, not just any old desert (can Incl. nomad interaction):
ÿ Maroc Anti Atlas and below (not High).
ÿ Mori: Ching, etc
ÿ Libya: usual Fezzanery incl. rock art
ÿ Niger (Air Tenere)
ÿ Libyan Desert (Gilf, etc)
ÿ Straits of Gib ferry & borders
ÿ Stuck in sand – usual recovery shots.
ÿ Getting it wrong
ÿ Crashed vehicles on the piste and other related dramas.
ÿ True dune driving - impressive only.
Footage needs to be:
ÿ MiniDV still in digital format – not VHS or other formats
ÿ In focus
ÿ Correctly exposed
ÿ Well composed still shots with movement (minimal panning & zooming)
ÿ No digital zoom
ÿ Nice ambient noise but no chat
If you can be bothered the best way would be to edit a tape down to the best shots and send it on a CD (.rm or .mov). Sorry, I can’t look through hours of tape to pick the best bits for you.
Your meagre reward?
A credit at the end of the film and a free copy when it’s out.
Deadline – End Jan 2003
