Zoom H1 Makes Greater Urban Film Fest Podcast Sound Great!

 On the recent episode of the Digital Life with Kevin Lockett podcast, I hit the road and attended the  second annual Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival

GCUFF is yearly film fest in Cleveland, Ohio which features minority filmmakers as well as  films about people from different cultural backgrounds.

Another great thing about GCUFF is that they also have  a variety of  engaging, thought provoking  panel  discussions.

 I attended  two of the panels. One was creating a web series with the producers and cast from “Black & Sexy”  while the other was a discussion on animation and gaming 

Following the animation panel, I interviewed three of the panelist: directors Eric Matthews (MadWerkz Films) LeSean Thomas (Black Dynamite/ The Boondocks) and gaming specialist  Tamar Medina (formerly of EA Games) using  my Zoom H1 Handy Portable Digital Recorder.

Now don’t be surprised by the slenderness  or the toy-like appearance of the of Zoom H1. For being a small recorder, it packs mean vocal punch!

All you do is press the red button and your automatically in digital journalism mode, (if you can find a wind muff for it,  is sounds even better).

I bought my H1 on Amazon last year for less than a  $100 and it hasn’t disappointed me yet. 

The H1 is also great if you are a filmmaker looking for a digital recorder on a budget.  

Now if you are filming something a bit sturdier, you might want to check into another Zoom recorder like the H6 , the Tascam DR-40 or other digital recorders including the Zoom H4N (right).

If not, just put a muff on your Zoom H1 Handy portable recorder and channel your inner J.J. Abrams.

You won’t be disappointed.
