In the middle of a big budget music video shoot. Extensive catering, lots of cameras, weeks of soundstage time.
Ok, untrue. But I am shooting a video. With Nai, and look, she is a crew.
It’s for ‘Run You Down’, and it has a long ways to go. But we have footage in and, so far, I think it will work.
I think video in the last few years has become like music like audio – all the hip gear and techniques are cool – but a guy with an idea and an ok little camera (and perhaps a relentless obsession with learning and tweaking) can give it a surprisingly good crack. I will try and be that guy, for five minutes of your entertainment.
I sure do like making a needless chopping motion with my arm while saying ‘action’. I assume that’s what directors do…. ?
I’m sure they do.
Here’s one of my afternoon test efforts to get a feel for this brave new world of eyes (as opposed to ears). The soundtrack is a quick octatrack jam. That part is for ears.
