Here's a really good audio discussion from the 'Terrance and Phillip Show' Podcast. (no southpark relation and no fart jokes) T&P discuss the topic of how the quality level offered by trained film & video professionals is becoming unnecessary because of lower expectations of 'quality' in digital media these days. From film to Mpeg4 and from Vinyl LP's to MP3's and more what is determined as a quality product has changed considerably.

The moment you have an idea for a new video project, you'll want to know what budget you're going to need and how you're going to get the ball rolling.
I've just put up a little online production planner - a little web ap designed to allow you to do just that in about 5 minutes - wherever you are.
Just add your title and deadline and you can start roughing out costs for elements of the production.
I've been doing video production gigs here and there, working as a sole proprietor under just my name, and I've been thinking of forming a single-member LLC instead, so that I can take out business loans, have limited liability, etc.
I also produce music (which I'd like to publish online soon), do audiovisual work for events, and design graphics for T-shirts and other items, all as a sole proprietor under my own name.
Is it possible or advisable to form a single LLC that would include all of these services?

I am looking to go on a kayaking trip for 3 months with no access to power. I am looking for a camera that will be capable of production quality audio and video. The necessities are:
Must be compact cause Id rather like to pack some food too
Must have alot of storage space with option of recording to sd card
Must have the option of purchasing larger batteries.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
