I don’t know at what point OK Go’s music turned into New Order but I like the new direction almost as much as their choice of camera!
Here’s the behind the scenes video of how OK Go made their latest video with the Panasonic GH4.
Featuring original music by HERDWHITE – “I Already Know What For”. Buy a special $1.49 expanded version of this song in MP3 format directly from EOSHD -
The E-M1 is a real surprise for a video.
For this review I decided to set myself a challenge with a musician friend, where we’d shoot a music video ‘Dogme 95′ style.

Shane Meadows (Dead Man’s Shoes, This Is England) is in my view the best filmmaker since Danny Boyle to come out of the North of England. While shooting his latest film, a Stone Roses documentary “Made of Stone” Meadows met Jake Bugg at a London gig where he was playing as a support act.
A big thanks to Ciecio7 for donating his superb OCT19 to E-Mount lens adapter for this shoot. This is available on eBay.
We shot this with the young German movie actress Lili Zahavi (IMDB) and theatre actor Niklas Brubach. A big thanks to both of them for their performances. This is a music video for my fellow friend from Manchester “Herdwhite” whose track Dreamleaver was recorded here in Berlin.
The Sony FS100 has a nice image but it isn’t as organic as the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. To make it more organic you use organic lenses.

In the last few weeks I’ve been locked away in a dark studio in Berlin working just on EOSHD.com, but I also found time with my resident music-producing mate to make this video, shot with the available lighting in the studio:
