Today, I put my Canon T2i to work. I was excited because it was the first time I’d shoot all day on a project using my new DSLR.
It was a music video for a local pop punk band named Public Gluttony. The title of the song is “Lip Ring Girl.” Their sound is inspired by bands like Blink 182 and Sum 41.
It was a one-day shoot that required 6 scenes in 2 different locations. I worked again with familiar faces from the SF 48 HFP. Bing Lim wrote the concept and directed the video, and Rhia Abarquez produced it. I also met Roland Posados, who was A.D., but as the shoot progressed, he offered himself to be second camera using his 7D. I think we worked really well together to make sure we covered scenes thoroughly; he also shot several inserts that I think will turn out nicely for the edit.
It was a long and exhausting day, but we accomplished to get all of the shots we needed for the music video. Juggling time, shots, continuity, equipment, transportation, food, actors, etc. from 7am to 11pm!
I had a great experience working with the cast and crew. Everybody was on task and ready to work.
One thing about this production that’s different from any of my others, is that the edit will NOT be handled by me. Editing is my favorite part of the whole process because that’s where I think a lot of the magic happens. But because of my commitment to other projects, I decided that it would be best to have another editor piece this music video together. It will be very interesting to see the result! It wasn’t the easiest thing to do (letting go of my own footage), but I’m confident they have an editor that will piece it together how we visualized it.
Awesome way to spend my birthday weekend, doing what I love! More to come when the post-production process is completed.
