Great job!

I am not a big heavy metal fan and yet I found the song and the video thrilling! It is a top notch production all the way. I have nothing negative to say. Beautiful evocative images, skillfull exciting editing, good song and a kick-ass performance by the band...I recommend this video to everyone whether you are a fan of that style of music or not.

All that head bangin made my hair hurt. Seriously, I really enjoyed it. The talent was excellent, the song was good, the scene changes from b&w to color were well done and the editing was tight. Although I (50+) am not in the video's target audience.... for what it is worth you did good!

Regard

Top notch. I am a big metal fan and this was better than alot of stuff I've seen on the music networks. I love that shot of the girl standing on the bridge with the traffic time lapse. How did you do that?

Very nice Ben - very nice indeed.

Can you tell us what the encoding specs were on the Flash side? - specifically the frame size (width/height) & the data rate to create your .flv? I'm assuming it's the On2 VP6 codec. It looked very nice and played well from the site - I'd just be curious about the encoding details/process (did you use the standard 8 encoder, another program (please mention & other capabilities - dual pass, etc), was it all true 24fps or 30fps, etc). I've been doing a lot of testing and encoding with the standard Flash 8 encoder - so I'd love to know more.

Likewise, tell us what you used to shoot with with (HVX?, etc)? Also looks like you shot or cropped for 2.35 aspect?

I'm a fan :)

Looked to to me. I was a big metal fan back in my youth, so I had no prob with the music. Can you give us a little info on what it was shot with, setting and such?

Thanks for the kind words guys. Nobody makes these music videos to incite workplace incidents, but it's always nice to hear.

Shawn: e-mailed you on settings

Mike: I kept the tripod fixed, filmed the traffic at 12fps (sped up a lot in FCP as well), filmed the actress at 60fps, matted 2 shots together.

Adam: Shot on HVX200, band scenes 1080i/24PA, everything else various frame rates in 720PN mode. CineV, BPress, that's all I can remember! The rest is c.c. and FCP filters...
