I've recently set up a film club at my high school, but we have no equipment. I've always experimented with my own films on an HD Aiptek camcorder, but it's definitely not enough.. I don't have any defined experience in the area and I have no idea what camera to get. As of right now, our budget is $1500. We're working on some fundraising, but some money needs to go into good mics and lighting. So unless I come up with something fantastic for a bit more, my limit is $1500. I'm hoping for a professionalappearancein the videos we produce.
