View Full Version : My first music videoshoot with behind the scenes...

June 10th, 2010, 06:22 PM
Well I didnt know if this would be interesting to photographers being that it was a music video but I thought I display something a little different. I use to play around with personal videos but I was asked to do a music video for a local artist and I took the job. He been one of my loyal clients and insisted I should give it a shot. It has some explicit lyrics but its not too bad. A friend of mine let me use his Canon 5d so I really was excited to do it then, lol. It was shot, directed and edited by me at the last minute. But here it is, enjoy. :)

Pretty cool man! I think a few of the shots were stronger than others filming wise, but good choice of location for the video shoot. Looks like it was pretty fun, and great for your first time doing something like that! I'm sure they will really like it. I would throw in a few contrasty black and white scenes and maybe mess with the colors a little more with your video editing program. Keep it up though, I'm sure you might get a few more jobs like they with other local rappers.

Hey wassup Corey thanx man! Yea I need to play with final cut a little more and learn how to change to the black and white. And even add the old time video filter where it look all scratchy like an old time film. It took me about 5 hours to edit it. And yes it was fun I cant even lie. lol. But thanx bro.

Nice edits Bigram- the synch is a little off toward the beginning (mouth movement doesn't line up with the words) but all in all it's got a raw flavor to it. Those dudes in the background are lookin' hard- like I'd be scared they were gonna jack my camera and shit at the end of the video shoot! Is that outside the Chicago area? Good stuff, man. :super:

Thanx Matt, its like when I uploaded it to youtube it was more noticeable. And when I uploaded it on vimeo it really is off bad, lol. But lol! those guys are pretty cool. You know in hip hop videos you gotta be extra tuff and hard core. But that video was shot in my town where I live, Lake Charles, Louisiana. A pretty small town. Not much outhere but casinos. lol.
