Producer/writer/director Chris Cashman chose the JVC Professional GY-HD100U Pro HD camcorder to shoot “Carts,” a feature film about an influential politician who was given a second chance to redeem himself.
Cashman selected the GY-HD100U because of the camera’s interchangeable lenses and ability to shoot in 24p on a small budget, which he and his wife financed. The camera’s short set-up time allowed the crew to start shooting sooner, which gave them more time for daylight shooting. In addition, its maneuverability let the crew move around its locations easily and more efficiently.
According to director of photography Darren Leis, the image quality was as crisp and clear in low-light shots as it was in strong sunlight.
