HD technology

While CILECT was happy with the film's subject, its main interest in the project was as a testing ground for advanced technology high definition Panasonic cameras, equipment and Avid post production software and file sharing technologies.

As part of the funding agreement, the producers and crew created an in-depth report about how the cameras and equipment behaved during "torture tests" while filming in the field and during the production and editing process. And, thanks to Levin's involvement in the project, UNT's RTVF program was able to take advantage of a deep discount and is now fully equipped with high definition cameras and equipment.
