48 Hour Film Project/Panasonic
HD Filmmaker Showdown
All five US city-winning teams submitted on-time films to the 48 Hour Film Project HD Filmmaker Showdown on the weekend of January 26-28, 2007. Congratulations to these teams! They were selected from out of all 2006 US City Winners to participate in the second annual HD Showdown.
Panasonic loaned an HVX200 HD camera to each team for use during the competition weekend. All HD films were shown at Filmapalooza in March, where the winner of the Showdown was announced and awarded an HVX200 HD camera to keep.
All five of the HDFS teams also received an Anton/Bauer ELIPZ system. This professional power, light and grip system provides stability, all day power, and a 6-volt light, powered by the camera battery.
