This is the music video to go with one of my new songs. It took months to make and finally it's done! It's so weird to actually be putting it online now.
It's a stop motion video clip of a real time video. The video being held up on an iPad in the hands of over 500 of Sydney's finest women!
The filming of the actual clip (and the timelapse) was done by a guy with much more experience, using a Canon 5D. The filming of the one shot clip was really challenging because there was so much movement and we didn't have a steady cam. In the end we wound up taking a slightly broader shots and removing shaking and tightening the focus in post.
All the photographs were taken with a 1000D with a stock lens, which I'd actually borrowed it from my parents. Special care had to be taken with the environment since the iPad is back lit and Sydney is a really bright city in summer. In the end, the vast majority of photos had to be taken in reasonably well covered areas, unless it was a heavily overcast day.
A lot of work had to be done in post to get all the photos lined up. I wrote a program which automated a lot of that, thankfully. And then there was the actual piecing together of the different film sections, which was a whole different challenge in itself!!
If you enjoy it, please share it with your friends!
