Need help setting up a movie studio

Well…the thread title is stretching it a bit.

For work I need to setup a mini-video studio. Nothing much, basically enough for 2-4 people to be interviewed.

Thing is no one in the office knows the first thing about this (me included) so naturally I get the task.

Basically I need advice on decent cameras, lighting and audio (and anything else you think is important).

This is not meant to be a super expensive, ultra-professional setup but neither is it meant to be what we can manage with a $100 camcorder from Best Buy.

Advice or links to sites with good info or whatever is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Find a good local camera store that has a professional section. They have tons of knowledge and you can give them specifics on the space you have available and what you’re trying to accomplish.
