This might sound like a crazy idea, but I recently bought a Canon Vixia HF 20 and it has all the bells and whistles for changing the frame rate and is great in low light visability. My question is it possible to use this camera to film my project to use at a festival? I don’t know what their strict guidelines may be or if they frown upon hand helds.
I do have the steadicam device for it and all the lighting and gels I will need for my scenes from the local home depot. I am trying to save some money here especially in this economy and starting out; however I would like to try it out at a film festival to see if they would except it.
