Our very first music video - take a look!

We took this on ahead of our busy wedding season. It is my first real attempt at making a music video. Directed filmed and edited by one crew (myself!)

A little more info about the sequence:

'BLITZ' was overseen and produced by none other than the very talented and world famous Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Aerosmith, Dream Theatre etc) cavemanproductions.com/​discography.htm

The music video & record is a concept based on the theme of “paradise lost” and depicts the world’s fall from grace.

Classic Rock magazine described the work as “a sprawling cinematic epic!” and they were right. It plays like a Hard Rock, Star Chasing Spaghetti Western!


Be great to know your thoughts,

Cheers.
John De Rienzo

Re: Our very first music video - take a look!

I thought it was really good, was it edited in FCP?

Music is not my style but the video was good enough to make me appreciate it all the same, fast paced and each shot kept the interest. Good use of colour correction.

Nice one!

Re: Our very first music video - take a look!

Good to see a music video where all elements - band performance and acting - work together as a coherent whole.

I'd be interested to know where's the 'extended pill-box' location is? Great locations in general.

Minor point - didn't like the 'explosion'.

Awesome.

Man, You rocked! (more than the band itself hehe)

Very tense cut and angles. Now we've got to wait a feature film! Ok?
