As I stated in the last post, I have been fortunate enough to be involved in a music video. I and my creative cohort came up with the idea for the video storyline, I created the art for the animatic and then he and I animated the graphic art to make the animatic. It was approved and now we are off to filming. We first went location scouting and fortunately, there were only 2 locations needed for this shoot. Then we slated a full Saturday to film all the necessary shots.
It was a fun experience and I want to do it again, for sure. The only thing I can remember that was not too fun was the heat. I was not acclimated to the 100+ weather yet, so I was losing it. But, outside of that little hiccup all things went exceptionally well.
We aren’t done, however. Editing is now our workload. We have knocked out 1 full session of collaborative editing, but I foresee us doing another round just to tighten things up. Then if it’s approved, we’ll start color correcting, adding filters, etc. to really make this thing pop.
Below are a few stills from shooting day and below that is a small 20 sec. clip from our latest editing efforts. I want to put a thank you out there to the small cast that played the street crowd and also the awesome kids who jumped at the chance to do a little scene stealing.
Without further ado….
I’ll continue to post updates on the making of this video.
Hope you enjoyed.
Till next time…
