Just shot this.

‪Scarlet Jacks - Run Jack Run music video‬‏ - YouTube

It's the first time I've used DSLR's on a music video shoot, so any comments or suggestions for next time would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Henry

Re: feedback on music video greatly appreciated

Overall seemed a bit dark, a little to underexposed. Song was catchy and the camera movements seem okay I just kept wanting to see "Jack" running. :)

Also even though it looks like it was an overcast day I probably would still go for seeing color. Whats the purpose in going B&W?

My 1/2 cents worth.

nitpicking but I agree with the slightly underexposed. You could easily just change the gamma a bit to tweak it. I would want to see the sky a bit overexposed. I've gotten some really interesting looks from Magic Bullet doing B&W. Other than that...well done!

Thanks very much, Robert and Jacob, for taking the time to post and leave feedback, it's greatly appreciated.

The artist asked for the video to be in black and white. He also like the idea of exposing for the sky rather than the subjects as he wanted them as near to a silhouette as possible, but maybe we over-egged the pudding a little. I'll certainly take another look at it in light of both your comments.

Thanks again.

Henry

I really like this music video. I would have liked to see jack fade in during the different stages. Also I would have tried a color bypass on some of the scenes like maybe the tree itself.

Thanks very much for the feedback Ron, I'm glad you liked the video. The artists have asked for a few additional bits of footage so I'll put those ideas to them as well - they sound like they could really enhance the piece.
