That sounds great. You got me curious.

FYI, the tone of the first The Master teaser (I finally watched it after I saw the movie) is completely different than how the film actually feels like. That first teaser is pure audio/visual poetry.

But wouldn't a Go Pro show a distracting (and annoying) drop quality-wise?  I don't know if I'd like that...  Are there any more options available?

Research some video of underwater Gopro videos to find out if the quality is to your standards. I wouldn't suggest it if you were shooting the rest of you short in film but since you'll be shooting it using a DSLR I thought it could work. I think some color correction and post work would create a decent result.  GoPros have become the standard tool in risky situation in digital film making. For example, that tv show Whale Wars uses GoPros when shooting on the small boats going against the whalers.
If you think this is going to have a happy ending, you haven't been paying attention.

well, gopro looks like gopro. there are other cameras that you can put underwater that isn't gopro. there also have been pretty good casings made. gopro is on whalewatch because sometimes the camera crew isn't around to run it.

Save up for a 16mm Anamorphic lens too, it compliments the GH2 well, for full frame suckers like me (5D Mk II) our anamorphic lens options aren't as broad. You should also get the old Russian m42 lens 'Helios 44 58mm f2.0', fast lens with beautiful spiral bokeh, it's bokeh looks like the lens used in Inglourious Basterds when the Basterds are in the forest before the Bear Jew beats the shit out of the SS Officer. Anyway try to capitalize on the old vintage m42 primes, some have better or should I say more interesting optics than the lenses of today, and when filmmaking you need to pull manual focus anyway, so what's the point of cashing out thousands of dollars for modern autofocus lenses. The Helios 44 can be found on ebay for $40

I'm cynical as all get out, but the shot they pulled off with the camera operator on rollerblades, hanging onto the side of the taxi, made me squeal like a schoolgirl.  It was like getting to watch a great magic trick over the magician's shoulder.

This alone makes me want to trade my 60D for the GH2. Is it worth the hassle? I'd love to go anamorphic. Fuck. Conflicted here.

*Edit: your whole post in general just sold me...but still, swapping bodies is such an ordeal....shit...how much is it to adapt these lenses to the GH2?

The Canon 60d you have is a cropped sensor, so your Anamorphic lens options are broad as far as I'm aware, you don't need to change your body.

They're like the anamorphic lens experts on dslr, I haven't bought the ebook yet, but I hear it's all kinds of useful to figuring out which anamorphic lens to buy and how to use it.
