My Mask "music Video"

Hi Everyone
Here is a video clip shot entirely with M2 on SONY FX1.
It’s a low budget “wanna be big video” shot over three days in Montreal.
Most of the shots are “stolen” and impro.
Althought I had it scripted, I’ve shot it in a docu style; nobody really knew what we’ll do the next day.
We used the canon and Nikon lenses, skateboard dolly, and easyFX jib.

The singer is Manuel Gasse, he’s from Quebec (Canada)

Wow, I really liked it, that was pretty cool. I didn't understand all the words (took French like 4 years ago) so I don't know much about what it was about (the song). Location was really interesting, I liked the color correction and most of the lighting for being low budget. Some scenes seemed a little dark, but overall very nice.

How much did that cost to put together?

Lovely.

I mean, I don't like the ending. Rock singers always seem to be saving the world from itself, or single-handedly battering down the gates of Hell, or whatever.

But it was beautifully shot, the story was clear and elegantly told, the clunky animation seemed like a choice not a necessity, the music was pretty (even if I didn't understand a word of the song), and you plainly know how to spend your money, frame a shot, and (most impressive to me) coach child actors.

Good stuff.

Michael

I don't understand a lick of french, but I thought the song and video styles went very well together. It looked very good (some of the effects shots weren't quite seamless, but that's just being nit picky). The only thing I didn't like was the audio of the police radio was too loud, IMO, and was distracting.

Very well done, IMO. Great example of how you don't need a big budget to pull off a big budget look.

Loved the whole feel and story to the video. Location was great. All shots seemed well thought out.
What do you mean by Most of the shots are “stolen” ?

I agree with Michael about the CG work. Its not photo realistic but with the great color grading they some how still work very well together. Very high production values on this one. You captured the look of the high dollar music videos very well. I wish I could comment on the story but I dont speak French. Please give us a link to your other work.

Also can you share some of your favorite tools/programs for color correction - It looks fantastic

Thank you all for comments and encouragement :)

I cut the clip in Premiere pro 2.0, and then brought it into after effects, where I colorized it using the standard tools. I have used the magic bullet to converted it to 30p (I am using a fx1, and shot it in 60i mode)
The 3d was done with 3ds max.

Since I had no budget to shoot the clip in a realistic fashion (check the masks and the rubber stripes :), I went for a cartoon look.
It was a decision I had to make, but it always worried me if it'll blend...

Joel,
Stolen shots were basically shots taken in locations with no permits and totally improvised (interior city and train) those we did while moving from one location to another.

Agree with audio being to laud during the police "chase"

Andy,
You have two great cameras, both better then what I shot it with. You should get a 35mm adapter if you want to push it a bit further.
Canon is decently capable to achieve similar effect.

Michael,
I am just another 36 year’s old Peter Pan fun, and love working with kids.

Brett,
My favourite is Lustre ($$$), I've used it once. One that can produce great result (and accessible) is color finesse for after effects. It’s fast good and fun.

I've posted this one some time ago, but I still enjoy it.
It was a test and gift for my godchild on his birthday.

Shot with the same setup (FX1+M2 adapter)

Thank you all again
Albert

Great job!

You did a great job, I really liked it. The story is good, production is great! M2 rocks :) I should really try it (currently shooting with Sony Z1U). Color correction is very good and video and 3d blend together very well. In an all I was impressed and inspired. Keep up doing the great job!
