The T2i isn't bad. A lot cheaper than a 5D, and it can still take some great video with the right lenses, lighting, etc. I have an HVX with a micro 35 kit, but I've seen stuff shot with the T2i that looks just as good even when projected at 1080p on a large screen (that was without any color correcting or post manipulation either). The T2i can do slow motion (60fps) at 720p too just like the HVX. Of course, the HVX wins in the sound department, but you can just record audio separately with the T2i.

Me being an annoying whore, but this was shot on the T2i with very little CC. Yes, not very good, but it's practice and it opened a few doors for me out here. But, now I have a 5D and the difference is pretty huge, especially in low light. T2i has been downgraded to my B/C cam.

Currently the GH-2 is bang-for-the-buck king for DSLR though it doesn't get talked up quite as much as the Canons. Its factory video quality is comparable to that of Canon's recent C300 Cinema EOS system (at about 1/15th the cost) in recent "shoot-outs".

I personally do just fine with my t2i. If you use cinestyle and magic lantern.

I hadn't heard of Magic Lantern before. Looks like it can help a lot.

Has anyone ever made a gory splatter?

I'm good friends with a local metal band and we might go for a 8-12 min long videoclip that turns out to be a splatter flick.

Depending on the cost, we might have to look for sponsors. In order to receive any money, we need to do a cost estimation first.

What do y'all reckon, how much money does it need to create a 8-12 min long gory flick?

We only have a film crew, actors and locations so far. Most money will be eaten up by blood, make up, puppets and models etc.

Appreciate any suggestions.

Your post doesn't have much in the way of specifics. I am currently producing a horror movie and I can offer you some info based on the budget I have put together.

Blackmagic Cinema Rental
$700 (3 weeks) + $109 for insurance+ $28.80 (shipping)
To use this you'd need to rent an anton bauer battery and a mounting plate.
$215 (3 weeks)+ $6 for insurance + $23.80 (shipping)

You'd also need to invest in SSD cards which are pricey, but could be resold for close to value (maybe could be rented).
$146 minimum
Special Effects $1000
***
Contact lenses x2 $180
Fake blood x4 $60
Dead cat $50
Liquid latex $100
Effects artists $200
Makeup $120
Assorted appliances $120
Carpet $90
Additional $200 for unforeseen costs
***
Wardrobe $300
Lighting $100
Sound $400
Security for Day 5 $100
Camera Operator $700
Administrative Costs $200
Locations Fees $500


Also, I'd like to suggest that you use people around you as much as possible. In my experience, passionate amateurs are about as good as pros that will work for very little money.

With actors, I'd go on line and find wannabes that will work for next to nothing because they want to put a reel together.

If you do this, the bulk of your money can be spent on renting top of the line equipment.

I think you are way overestimating the potential budget here. The flick I just made is 11 minutes, contains some decent gore, and was done for less than a couple hundred bucks. Granted, the actors, fx artist and cameraman were friends who knew their trades well and were willing to do it for free, but even still that budget sounds steep.

That's if you're going to do it legit with a full on functioning crew and it sounds almost union-like. Hell, I could do a gore film, easily, here in LA for less than half that. Also, Black magic? At least recommend the new one. He's probably shooting low budget, so a DSLR would be great, since he's probably working with little in the way of lighting and DSLRs still do a better job low light than most high end cameras. There's a lot that goes into it, but unless we knew the details we couldn't give him a proper breakdown. Also, Switzerland might be very different in how their pricing breaks down.

I wish I was able to make a film. I have a great idea for a found footage style film and an excellent location to shoot it but no one else seems interested in participating.
