I have been given a shot at creating a music video for an upcoming local CD release. At this point the band has not given me any direction or even a copy of the lyrics but I am trying to get as ahead of the game as I can so I am ready when they do.
What would be awsome from the community here is if I could get any ideas for camera shots that you have had but may not ever get to. I have logged about thirty on my own so far and any ideas would be appreciated.
Example: Long alley with band members placed about 100 meters apart. Film distant shot of first band member (no others in view) Band member on left side of alley - move from far shot to tight to face - then once face completely framed move to right and continue on forwards to next band member who is on the right side of the alley and repeat only showing one member at a time. Members don't move during filming. Then the footage could be sped up or slowed down as needed
I bet there are some great directing ideas out there
