    Video is really only moving pictures if you really think about it. So use that same concept with your stills. Try to give them life through movement, size changes and so on. Your can make a real slick video with just pictures if you do it right.

    Don’t forget internships. Every studio I have worked with over the years has some sort of program for it. Sometimes you can even get college credit and I have yet to see a better way for anewbieto meet people, make contacts and really see how things get done.

    For my two cents, go with FCP. I have worked on Premier, FCP and Avid and to me. Premier is more consumer (mini-DV) while FCP is more pro (HD) and Avid is more old school (Film). Granted this is a rudimentary comparison. However, when we have to capture hours and hours of HD or Red footage. FCP is a breeze and I have always found Premier to be a headache.

    I have to agree with iakinnz. One of the biggest issues I have with the Flash card mania is that you lose a tape backup. I am not sure if the camera companies are trying to keep camera prices down by not including tapes or what. However I think it costs us more in the long run. Sure, you save 5 or 10 bucks on a tape, but then how do you archive footage. Say buy a $100 HD and put it in the closet and what happens when your HD crashes the day after you download critical footage. Maybe I am showing my age, but I really like to be able to open my storage closet and pick a tape by shoot or day and recapture it.

    For quality between MiniDV and tapeless it is really all a matter of the quality of the camera you have purchased. They all have pro’s and con’s and unless you have a really high-end camera they all have some sort of compression built in. I would spend more time looking at the bit rate, color sampling, depth and so on.
