Music Video (FS100, After Effects)

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

We recently finished this music video and wanted to share with you.  Shot mostly on the FS100 with a few pickup shots on the NEX-5n.  One of the biggest challenges and disappointments was how the camera performed in the club scene.  The internal codec falls apart whenever there is a flash of bright color (or rapidly changing color) as there is likely not enough bandwidth to represent the varying information using the inter-frame compression.  Surprisingly, there is very little info on this (we've researched before shooting).  An outboard recorder would have been really beneficial in this case.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video:

Cheers!

      Here's a new music video I directed, shot, graded and edited recently, for the Finnish punk/thrash metal band RiESA (Loosely translates to Burden). It's in Finnish, but I find it quite interesting even if you're not well versed in Finno-ugric languages. Their new album is a concept album, depicting a protectivist, totalitarian state controlled by a single dictator, and led by fear and propaganda. This gave us a nice opportunity to play with some 1984-like imagery and I'm quite happy with the end result.
      We did the video in essentially two days, with one day spent building the sets (the whole thing was shot in a basement of a local office) and one day of shoot. The interrogation room was mostly lit with practicals, with fluorescent tubes on the background and some IKEA spotlights lighting the posters. Only cinema lights used were two Aputure LED panels with diffusers used as fill lights. The jail cell was lit with one overhead 300W Fresnel and a 650W fresnel right outside the door to give us some heavy volumetric light. The propaganda scene was done simply with a home theatre video projector playing a video loop I prepared beforehand.
      I shot the whole video using modern EF lenses but with a Cokin P Pastel filter. It's one of my favourite diffusion filters as it gives a gorgeous bloom effect on light sources without eating too much into microcontrast or fine detail. You can see this if you watch the video in 4K, some of the skin detail is pretty astounding imho. And, not to sound like a Blackmagic fanboy, but I have to say the Ursa Mini delivered in spades, again. It's a fine workhorse. Visually the biggest downside is the youtube compression, which introduces banding, even here where the original image has some added film grain.
      Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, and if you guys have any questions about the production I'm happy to elaborate

      Wanted to showcase my latest album with a song fitting the 80s and what better way than a slot car racing track. Doesn't get any more 80s than that. Looked up a guy with a Scalextric slot card track and brought over my A6000,the kit-lens, the 50mm 1.8m two cheap LED lights and some blue gels and got to work. Lit everything so it would look like moonshine on a clear night and just got the angles. Edited in PP and stabilized. Some grading needed but no noise reduction used. Everything is handheld including the POV, although that took some DIY to get right.

      Hello,
      For a review of Fantastic Beasts and where to find them i recreate the magical newspaper The Daily Prophet from Harry Potter.
      I would love to get your opinion on the effects.

      Shot vertically to capture more resolution during green screen work (in my living room with two LED panels of the cheapest kind). Main song hook recorded in one take although there's a cut-away in the edit during the bridge of the song. Sony A6000 with the 55mm 1.8. Tunnel shots done on Panasonic GH2 and severe editing in After Effects for the light beams with text.

      'Get Free' shot for French alternative rock outfit Kids From Atlas. POV shots of viewfinder of old twin reflex were done with DIY wooden rig (see photos) with a6000 and old Carl Zeiss Flektogon 2,4/35. The close focusing capabilities of that lens (20cm) made it a great match for FOV and distance. The rest shot on the FS700 with speedbooster and Canon glass.
      Contrary to popular belief, inspiration for opening shots of naked man, awakening in a strange house were not based on this director's personal experience...
