Thread: BMCC music vid - lots of green screen

  1. #1

    Default BMCC music vid - lots of green screen

    I directed this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1WSn...ature=youtu.be

    We presented 4 different treatments and they chose number 4. The others contained too much violence and they wanted something showing a more dreamlike quality. The brief was:

    - Outside
    - Sunshine (lots of)
    - Bling
    - Incense (smoke) - they wanted tons of the stuff to represent something or other (they like their smoke).
    - Dreamlike (but still with the sun)
    - Words coming out of the screen
    - Show some elements emphasising some of the negative lyrics
    - Bling (check out their costumes)
    - Ital sun coming out of the eye at the end.

    Shot on a BMCC, Russian 85mm lens (with 2.5 crop factor), 28mm Samyang. We had a cage, shoulder rig etc... Shot over one and a half days, two different locations and green screen. RAW is such a pain as we were chewing through a 240 gig card every 10 minutes (maybe a fault somewhere?) We had two MacBook Pros in the background taking turns to download the footage and the data wrangler was the busiest guy on the set.

    Frankly, the DoP who edited the footage did the majority of the work. I just directed and made a couple of suggestions in post.

    What do you think?

    Nice - I liked the artists pop up with smoke and the mirror thingie. The bridge like thing at the water didn't fit the video for my taste. Overall coll video and cool song.

    Thank you, sir! Mmmm, the bridge. I wasn't crazy about that aspect as well. It didn't really fit particularly well but as a choice between variety and shot quality, variety won. It was the right choice but still not ideal.

    Great video - the stage covered with newspapers worked really well, especially when the guys were trying to fit through the imaginary door - I like this style of music so that helped too - good job

    Thanks! I was just the director, not the DoP or editor who did the bulk of this. Am really humbled at all the positive responses!

    Very nice job. If this had been made for me I would have definitely paid you.

    Only crit I can offer is the speed of the Banc Music logo was too quick at the end and the Film Autre was to large.

    Nothing to add. Brimming with ideas and superbly executed.

    Very interesting. Did shooting RAW/2.5K really give you an extra advantage on post with the green screen?
