hi

i dp'ed and co-directed a musicvideo with a friend of mine for his band.
we begged and borrowed al lot, the budget was a few hundret euros
and everyone worked for free of course..

luckily http://vids.myspace....eoid=1405190794 a friend of mine
works as an electrician at
this studio, so we got it basically for only having to pay for used energy.

shot with an havx200 in 25pn mode with an m2 adapter and a 24 or 28mm canon photo lens.
the setup required about 90kw of space lights in order to get an stop of 4/5,6 in order to
make focus pulling a bit more human.

here's the video: http://vids.myspace....eoid=1810067905
looking forward to hear your feedback,
alex

what i forgot to mention was that there are actually two versions uploaded:
the one @ myspace is almost ok compression wise, but not really running fluently: http://vids.myspace....eoid=1810067905
the one @ youtube runs more fluent but looks terribly compressed:

i'm quite a fool with all things computer, so i'm hoping for your generous comprehension :)

one more thing to add: actually not all of it was shot with the hvx and m2 adapter, only the steadicam stuff and
the 3 or 4 transition shots from normal to all ascii .. the stuff that is completely ascii was shot handheld with a sony dsr500 operated by myself.

thanks again,
still looking forward to hear feedback,
alex

Its good stuff and typical of MTV type film. From a technical point it fits in well with a professional well turned out video.. My criticism of this is at a professonal level and would be that its a studio shoot of the band that tried to dress up the fact with some artistic work. People like looking at people and the band were all presentable characters that were filmic although perhaps a more individual look for the band members could help.. Thats how I would present this.. More of the Band? OR more Money and more of the band on location? Or even more money and animation? Perhaps?
