I have very little video experience but a friend wants me to help him shoot a 30 minute long video. Wondering if I'm equipped properly and capable of seeing it through.
He's proposing a fairly simple project, a few people speaking for about 10 minutes each, shot in black and white. (It's for a presentation at the local bar association. It will be humorous in nature, so it doesn't have to be technically perfect.) I could shoot it with my 7D and I have Premiere Elements for editing.
My two main concerns are the length of the video (I've never edited anything over four minutes in length and that was a long time ago) and the challenges associated with getting good sound from the 7D. Equipment-wise, I believe I'm all set with the 7D, some good lenses, a good tripod, and some make-shift lights. I'm not sure what he plans on using for presentation, probably a digital projector and a fairly large screen.
Should I offer to help?
