First TV project

      I have shot some vids on my Panasonic PV-GS180, edited in iMovie HD, and posted to Youtube. They have a surprisingly film-like look for such an inexpensive camera, at least on Youtube’s small player. So on the strength on those Youtube vids, I got a job making a commercial that is supposed to have a Hollywood dark-suspense kind of look.

      The commercial is intended for the web, but the clients think MAYBE they will want to use it for TV, so they want me to make sure it will look good on a TV screen too.

      I am assuming I will need to rent a much better camera for this, so I have been searching a lot online and am pretty confused. Hoping for some recommendations for a camera that I can use to create that film look for TV. Hoping to rent one for under $1,000 for a week. Will edit in iMovie or Final Cut Express. Many thanks for any clues!
