Hi! Video is of Les Trois Accords, a really funny silly band from Quebec, mandate was to make the singer look like Mister America taking a walk on a nudist beach, surrounded by his bodyguards, members of the band making sure the path is clear... We had a prostetic of his head moulded but ended up doing most of the head on the body scenes on a green screen on the beach... I shot this in 7217, transferred in BW on Spirit in post. We were a bit unlucky with the weather and did not have budgetted lighting, all we had was a sungun powered by a battery belt... sketchy but in the end it worked out.

Let me know what you think! The camera was SR3 and unfortunately I was not able to rig it so that I could frame with my left eye, (the viewfinder does not flip to either side like the SR2.. I just figured this out on location...) I had to frame with my right eye, so have the camera on my right shoulder, which I am not used to at all, so things are a bit wavery...




Thanks for watching!

Very Sharp Footage, Very Nice Compositing Job on the Head! Beatiful Exposure Every Shot!

Nice looking video! The one-joke thing wears thin by the end but I agree that the compositing was done very well. Throwing in a slightly larger variety of shots plus a few more jokes might have made this one a killer. Not a bad effort!
