a music video/XDCAM

We shot a music video in white screen studio. Operator was pretty much the best in our country. We used XDCAM for filming, one kino flo and some stage lights. Budget was $6000. It will be on MTV since 27th of Nov. It was directed and edited by me.
Link for 100mb fail: http://www.fff.ee/upload/MTV/SLIDE%2...igh%20reso.mpg
Link for 30mb fail: http://www.fff.ee/upload/MTV/SLIDE%2...low%20reso.mpg

I recommend you to download a 100mb fail, coz of quality.

Please let me know what you think. Bad and good things...

Thanks

Enjoyed it, great editing, overall, I'd add contrast, clip gives away a video/real look in low contrast shots, esp. all white background with chair, Problem is there is no pure shite color in video at all, it's kind of dirty white, which I dislike being a photographer and shooting model on white background, after a while they step on it and it shows dirt, add white in highlights...Good job!

thanks, im quite sure might be some more color problems. I was editing only on LCD monitor, which wasn't probably properly set up...

I enjoyed that a lot. Great timing, lovely movement. Nice one. Oh, what I'd do for a $6000 budget for a music video!

What camera and editing s/w did you use? And who is the band? Are they signed?

There's a saying in the music video business...

The only difference between a video with a $500 budget and a video with a $10,000 budget is that on the $10k one, the crew gets paid.

Nobody works for free on a $6000 video, leaving approximately $4.52 for all the cool stuff that needs to go in front of the lens!

Ha! Truer words were never spoke. Still, $6k?

On my first video (Spaceship, a few posts below) we had about a 25 budget. We blew that on beer. If I told you that the 'mysterious' red objects are a football, an old box, a waste paper basket and a cat scratching pyramid, all sprayed with some red paint I found in the garage, you'd understand why the model maker, to whom the 25 had been promised, was less than impressed.

Ian, we used Sony XDCAM(not that HD one) with wide angle lens. I edited in Premiere Pro 2. We added some grain and hide some wires/ropes on the walls with some other program.

The band is called Slide Fifty. If you are interested then, www.slidefifty.com
Im not sure what "signed" means, if you would explain i would answer your question.

Nate, thats true, pretty much nobody worked for free on this project. I got for editing and directing $400, cameraman got $640, make up artist $240.

We had quite a lot other expences.

Thanks for the info. By "signed" I mean do they have a record contract or are they an independent band?

yes, they are signed. They have released two albums and they are quite big over here. But the target public is 12-13years old girls...
