Hi! The band I made this video for finally released it and I'm very happy, so I wanted to share it with you guys.

 

It was a lot of work and it's not without its flaws, but considering the crew (three people including me apart from the make-up artist) and the time we had it came out quite decent.

 

Please tell me what you think!

By the way, I shot it with the Driftwood Apocalypse Now! 6GOP Nebula patch, and the lenses I used were:

 

· Rokinon 28mm f2.8

· Minolta MD 50mm f1.7

· Minolta MD 135mm f2.8

 

If you have any questions just ask!

I bet you used all pre-production tools of the trade, storyboards, moodboards, production design planning. What else?

Very impressing.

Thanks, Axel. I did make a storyboard which I synched to the song to get an animatic and build the idea tightly around the song. That way I also knew the timings I needed for each shot and added or removed as was necessary. I then printed that storyboard and wrote annotations on each shot by hand. That was my guide on the whole shoot, and it was a bless. The rest was in my head.

I will upload a three way comparison (storyboard/raw footage/final image) to my Vimeo account in the next few days. I will also upload the the music video in (hopefully) higher quality (I reckon Vimeo's compression holds grain better than YouTube). There'll be a 12Mbps video to download as well.

Really impressive stuff. Did you do all of the compositing and effects work yourself?

Thanks! And yes, I wrote, produced, directed, DP'ed and made the camera work, edited and did absolutely all the post production work.

Even more impressive. My hat is off to you. That was a real feat to tackle all of that and come out with a product this good. Congratulations!

This is incredible. Love the look of the Minolta lenses as well. Been looking into getting a few of those and this may have swayed me! Amazing VFX work as well. Mad props.

Yeah, I bought these Minolta lenses because they were cheap, back when I bought the GH2 and they were used. I've become very fond of them. I only wish the wide open performance of the 28mm was better, but I still like the organic feel they bring to the table. I want no digital lenses today!
