SHOOTING A MUSIC VIDEO AND...
Posted 16 December 2008 - 12:56 PM
I'm wondering the best approach to this. Should they fully play the song all the way through each take? And should we still play the song off a computer or CD player really f#*king loud so they can hear above their instruments? Or do they mimic the playing of the instruments the best they can and listen to the music on the CD? Any information would help.

As for playing it all the way through-- depends on budget/format.
If you could afford it multi camera-multi take of the whole song would be nice I'm sure.
If you can't afford it, single camera it the whole way through a few times (as a master/closeup) and go in for closes on all the "riffs" etc.
Just my rough thoughts.

Whether or not you shoot the whole thing through from beginning to end depends on the shots you need. But unless you want a one'r, there isn't much reason to do this more than a couple times for wide shots and possibly the singers single.
