i participated at this "i dig incubus" music video contest with some friends..
this is a contest where fans make the band a music video for free,
with provided greenscreen material of the band, or self shot material, or both.
this is our contestant:
and here are the others:
the budget was a few hundred bucks, i got an easyrig and remote focus for barely
nothing from a befriended steadicam operator, the camera for free from a befriended
production company and the rest was spent on lights.
the main shot in the flat was a long one, 4:20 trough the whole song and flat.
it was supposed to look handheld, since it would have a more voyeristic
feel to it. but unfortunately my back was hurting terrible that time because i
must have had a pulled muscle or something, so the shot is sometimes shakier than i
wanted it to be. if you listen real closely you can still hear me screaming in pain
as the camera goes up from the polaroids on the floor
we shot on the 4th, 5th and 7th of january and had quite a rushed postproduction
since we had to send it off on the 12th in order to arrive in the us in time.
so there are still some rough edges in it compositing wise, but nothing too tragic
as i think.
looking forward to opinions,
oh, and here are some pictures from shooting..
