JVC Cameras Bring Horror Film Havoc Into Focus

Filmmaker Robert Lynn previewed his new film Havoc at HD House during the Sundance Film Festival.

Shot with JVC's GY-HD110U ProHD camera, Havoc is a horror/thriller about a team of paintball players who stop at an abandoned prison and encounter a paranoid schizophrenic war veteran who mistakes them for a team of assassins.

"The technology in the GY-HD110U amazes me. I put it through some really rough extremes and it performed flawlessly," says Lynn. "The HD images are truly unbelievable. The ability to change lenses is really a great feature, not to mention the focus assist. It's terrible when you get the exact scene you want and in the editing process you find it's soft. With focus assist, I don't have to worry about this."

Shot at the old Tennessee State Prison, Lynn put the GY-HD110U to the test during rehearsals and the shoot. The camera endured excessive dust stirred up during the shoot, harsh humidity, constant running up and down staircases and direct hits from paintball guns. "I wouldn't have been able to shoot for the entire one take if I didn't have this camera," Lynn adds.

Lynn used JVC's DR-HD100 hard disk drive to capture his HDV 720p images. According to Lynn, "The hard drive saved much time. It worked flawlessly. We took the files right into Final Cut Pro and began the process of editing. No capture log, just one step."
