Music Video Shoot questions

Hi guys,

Shooting a music video and planning on doing it at about an hour before sunset at a park, already checked with the park service and we are good to go but had a few questions:

1) I figure I can only shoot several angles in one hour of the solo artist. And I plan to shoot the close ups first so that I can shoot the wide shot right as the sun is lower. Also, I'll be using a reflector and the 5D along with a 120 degree section of circle track. Does this sound reasonable for shooting this low key video?

2) The song starts out as vocals and guitar and then other instruments come in. Should I start the video with vocals and guitar and then go to my artist singing only as the other instruments come in (audio) ?
