how to transfer from DV to 35mm : LUSENET : Shooting DV Films : One Thread

Hey, everyone. I'm shooting a film starting this weekend but I have no experience with DV. I have a Sony VX2000 and would like to know how can I shoot now in order not to mess up something when I transfer it to 35mm. Should I shoot on 16:9 or 4:3. When I tried last night shooting 16:9 when I transfered it on tape(VHS) I couldn't see the wide black shades of the look of 16:9. Any suggestion is welcome. peace, greg

dv is for independent film makers. independent film makers generaly should'nt worry about getting cinematic distribution. dv is not a real format. It could be compared to... kia's or geo's. They look like cars, and run like cars but they're not reeeeaaally cars. in addition it just looks rediculous when people supe them up and put nice sound systems in them.

Big Justin Daniels seems to have it all together. All us "Indie" filmmakers, I guess, should just wrap it up and get a job at McDonalds. After all, I don't make movies to express an idea or to tell a great story. I make them for the sole purpose of arguing about who is and who is not warranted to call themselves a filmmaker. Besides, big Justin Daniels is so well known as a filmmaker, he probably nabbed the last spot the industry has to offer people with talent and intelligence.
