cool man. you made it visually interesting by switching up the color of the video and the editing. the shots were nice too. how did you light it? 1 or 2 lights and a bounce card?

thanks for the comments! all the green stuff was 2 pro-lights as back-kickers, and a kino divalite up front. and a lot of smoke.
the blue stuff was a bunch of fluorescents right next to the lens. and a lot of smoke.

A good example of a simple performance video that is well done. I liked the diffusion and the lighting was creative. I didnt know JHF was still around, I actually really liked the song as well...

Very nice job on the lighting, the camera work, and the editing. Totalment gai.


I'm a total rookie so you'll have to forgive me: Did you do much color correction to get the green and the blue looks, or was that a function of gels on the Lowels and gels or maybe nothing on the Kinos?

oui oui, c'est tout gai.

i try to do as much color work in-camera (i also was the DP for this video).
if you know about subtractive color theory:
the green i got by white-balancing with a magenta gel in front of the lens, which made the image quite green.
the blue was just daylight-balanced fluorescents, and the camera was set to tungsten.

Thanks George! Yep, I've played with white balance, I just wanted to learn what a real cameraperson does. K.I.S.S. method in this case. Turned out awesome. Take that, Color Finesse and Magic Bullet! lol

Ok, one more question I just thought of, before I close this baby. Why do you prefer to do as much color work in-cam as possible? To keep it simple, or to not have to discard color info later, or to save time (and therefore money) on doing basically the same thing in post later, or what?

Thankya again

well, i knew what i wanted, so i just did it. it saves time in post, and it saves the media from going thru too many digital renders, re-renders, spit-outs, etc.
and it looks better if you just do it in front of the camera, i think.

Compared to the typical "we can just tweak it in post"... I like your approach.

You are far more brave than I, for fear that I would kick myself later after viewing my raw footage, wishing I had gone the post route.

Nice job!
