first narrative Music Video, shot on NX1, critique welcome

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

Made my first real music video, and it just came out. For the most part it was a two-man-band of me + my filmmaking partner for every step (writing/cinematography/editing/etc), with some help in lighting, transit, and makeup from a few members of the band and our actors.

In short, this is about a woodworker who has at least 2 accidents. 

It was about 50% scripted and 50% improvised, and we shot this over the course of about 12 hours in Astoria, Sunset Park, and the LES with no permits, no budget, and no crew (and our gimbal went haywire). Some things could have been neater for sure, and I wish I could change a few shots, but I'm also very happy with a lot of it. My big takeaways are I need to step up my lighting game a lot, and I just need to simply allow for more time in my production schedule for this kind of thing. Framing could use some work in a few places too.

We shot on an NX1 as our a-cam, and a hacked NX500 in 2.5K mode as a b-cam. Critique & suggestions are definitely welcome and appreciated. 

Thanks everyone!
