If you remember from an earlier "update" post I said something about doing a video shoot that I would elaborate on later. Well, later is now.
For the past few months Anna and myself have been in love with a song by Absofacto called, "Done With Love". When I saw the video I loved the song even more and I started to realize how simple the video actually was. The only real difficult part was figuring how to sync the mouth movement that was moving in slow motion while the normal tempo of the song is being sung.
This is the actual video - > Click me
Once I learned how to sync everything, I talked to Anna and King Quise about doing the video for me. I got to give them a lot of love and praise because this was out of their element. They needed to learn how to sing the song going twice it's original BPM tempo speed while conveying emotion. At the end of the video you see a few seconds of what they are actually hearing while recording.
The other challenge we faced...it was a cloudy day. The sun didn't come out til the end of the shoot. I was trying to keep everything a natural lighting because we were in a small vehicle. While compared to the actual music video they were in a more spacious vehicle. It was hard trying to keep enough light on King Quise being that he was in the backseat and the light wasn't strong there in some shots.
I would have liked to have had a person as a driver too. Freeing Anna up to be in the backseat with Quise, but no one was available and I hate rescheduling shoots. So, we went with the backup plan. Anna is a Uber driver, lol.
Towards the end of the shoot it started to get cold and in this last part I couldn't be in the car video recording them. They came back 4 or 5 times with not hitting the record button on the camera. Which was hilarious. I threw some outtake clips in at the end.
All in all, this was a lot of fun. I like to say that this experiment was a success. I hope you enjoy it as well. Please leave a comment if you like and thank you.
