New Music Video

Here is the link for my newest music video for Rap artist Nitro from Oklahoma. It was shot on a Panasonic DVX100A in one LONG day. I'd really appreciate any feedback/comments. Right click on the link and "save file as" to download the video. - Mario

Fellow Okie here...any reason you went with a low-shutter and not a high one? A bit cliche I know but most rap videos are all about cliche...and you have every other one in there =o) Also, you need a lot more focal lengths, everything is very medium, upper half, framing, that can get dull. Get a wide lens or a fisheye and throw those shots in there as well as some tight close-ups. On the CC, I would have gone more saturated and less crushed...

Yes, check the XL2 forums. I have used the Canon XL series cameras since day 1 and have developed most the custom looks for the XL2 and XL1s. I used to shoot all over the world but now I am settling down as I just had a kiddo. Surprising how much work there is to do just in OK... and, believe it or not I often make more on local stuff than in Dallas and LA. That being said, I currently have 3 national/international projects in various stages of development... You guys send me your info and I will throw work your way, I turn down stuff all the time...

Just wondering but, what did the clients pay for the video. and are you using a matte box? cause in some of the shots, theres like a black line on the left.

Hey,
The longer I use this forum, the more I become convinved that we got some great skill coming from Oklahoma... maybe the best. I mean, everyone is familiar with the legend that is Ash Greyson. His comments have definately helped me tweak my xl1s.

On mvwire mario posted that the video cost 5K to shoot. As far as I know he did use the matte box because its always on his camera.

in the right market, with the right reputation, you could easily charge 25K for what you made.

that goes without saying that it couldn't have been better, as posted the color could have been richer but you had the edit and feel for the genre.
