Our recent update ‘Sweeny 5-The Cut’ was actually shot last summer along with several other Sweeney episodes. We knew that Dillon Buck wouldn’t be available for a while, so we made a little stock for our members.
Then of course we continued shooting more great videos – each one vying for a place in the update schedule, and before we know it, it’s a year later and we still have a Sweeney episode waiting to go on the site!
Watching something that was shot a year ago was a little strange for us and brought back a few memories of that summer.
It’s also the last video we shot with a standard definition camera.
The main cam was hi-def of course, but being a young site, we couldn’t stretch our budgets to buying two hi-definition cameras until just after this shoot.
What few cam 2 clips we see are fine, but we’re glad we invested in state-of-the-art High Definition cameras a year ago because they’ve greatly increased the quality of our content.
As time goes on, we’ve invested further in new equipment to improve quality even further and we’ll continue to do so. Take a look at those very early videos in our bonus section if you’d like to compare!
Of course, video for streaming and downloading is compressed to keep file sizes down and while it looks pretty damn good, I suppose the difference will be really visible when we finally release some of our films on DVD.
