FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
INDIE WESTERN FILM ‘SIXGUN’ SHOT WITH JVC HD GY-HD100U
Camera Addresses Needs of Small Budget Film Companies
“We love the film-style-friendly lens that allowed complicated rack-focusing—not the clumsy non-mechanical lens which makes the assistant cameraperson’s job impossible,” says Scott Perry, Producer/Director of SIXGUN. “The GY-HD100U performed flawlessly in 107 degree weather and in extremely dusty conditions, shooting for12-16 hours a day over four weeks. We love that we were able to shoot 24p in HD for a film with a very small budget.”
Perry also chose the GY-HD100U because the camera has simultaneous HD and SD outputs, which they use for location monitoring, offline mastering and dubbing.
The film has been picked up by a distribution company and will be completed by the end of 2006. For more information about SIXGUN and to check out the film’s trailer visit http://sixgunthemovie.com.
SIXGUN is the story of Tommy Hill, an aging bounty hunter turned rancher whose relentless grieving over the death of his wife has driven him to the bottle and bankruptcy. When a former gang mate shows up with a plan to go after $25,000 of dirty money, Tommy ignores the advice of his eccentric sidekicks and sets them on a collision course with soulless killer and his haunted partner, Violet. The story features exotic locations of historical relevance, including the Alamo and Willie Nelson’s long-dormant western town set called Luck, Texas.
