Nothing terribly orginal about this; rapper sings into the camera with his posse with intermittent clips of him riding in his ride.

I thought it an average attempt; nothing stellar but not at all bad. Just the usual stuff we see.

Thanks for sharing and keep shooting !

Stupid, boring, standard, no message rap shit - great video. ;-)

I really liked your filming and editing. Nice looks, nice composing, nice arrangements! I also liked the bouncing of the camera and the change in the WB - warm, golden light outside, perfect white inside - why not?!

However, as already said - big cars, golden teeth, girls, 'I've got the money'-talk - and they give you just 100 bucks? If these guys ever earn money with their music and this video you should get 90% of it! :-D

And - they should give you NOW (at least) the girl + the motorbike + 100$ for your video... ;-)

Regards, Oliver

I'm a bad audience for this. I hate rap and hate the attitude, as others here have said.

Despite that, I think this is a very well done video. Not exceptionally innovative but solid. I like the color difference between inside and outside.

Yeah, it differs from person to person. I knew off gate that this wouldn't be a "ground breaking" music video, just from the way the artist and his manager were talking, but I did know that it was going to be good enough for me to show to potential employers. A lot of people are blown away by it, which gives me some satisfaction given I wasn't able to do all I really wanted to do.

Overall, another video to the collection that taught me a valuable lesson. ;)

Now I just got to graduate and figure out where to go next. Anyone hiring in Wilmington, N.C.? :)

.. and that's what's important.

(I'm sending you an email)

EDIT

I wanted to send you an email but it will not let me. I am in the CAPE FEAR area.

I like it. I'm not an advocate of rap, for various reasons, but the video looked good. From the way it sounds, you had to put up with a lot of stupid stuff to get this done. I'd have walked. Good job on that. Question...

What were you using for the camera shake? Was it in post (I'm assuming so)? It was a bit much for me, but still good.

Nope, all camera shake was done in camera. However, for future videos I'm going to do any shakes in post (finally figured out how to do it in After Effects).

Great job John.

It is a shame that our clients love to talk about all the cash they have until its time to give up some...LOL I have been in the music business for years and this is the same crap I get when it comes time to pay the studio bill.

I actually like rap music but didnt care for this song. Thank GOD you did some outstanding work on their video. Stop screwing with these type of clients and find people that will appreciate your talent. Sometimes it takes doing work like this on spec just to build a decent demo reel so I hope these guys were easy to work with ;)

I look forward to your next video.
