Music Video Fun

It's a little past 12:30AM and I've just finished a rough cut of a music video for this really cool band singing this catchy, catchy tune.

I'm doing it as a favor, but either I'm not having fun and getting paid or having fun and getting paid or having fun and not getting paid. Oh, or having fun and paying (going out, for instance...). Confusing? Maybe, but all I meant was: I don't mind not being paid if I'm having fun!

Anyways, it's a really cool idea and I'm loving being able to cut this thing. Plus it was shot on the RED and that's always SO sweet to work with. Love it.

On the same theme, I shot my buddy Jean from the band Kites singing last weekend on his rooftop with my little Nikon D90 (a modern version of an 8mm camera). It was a lot of fun and I think the footage looks great. Got a cheap monopod to stabilize the thing, otherwise it will jitter like Jell-O. But working on a cut slowly and I'm pretty happy with it!

Cheers.
