This past April or May a friend of mine (who would like to be known by her web identity “Lady Estrogen”) said she had an idea for a music video. I said lets do it. She said o.k… nearly 10 months later, said video gets done. We actually shot in August and I just found time to edit it this past week. Not having an actual deadline kind of lends to slackin’ off a touch.
Technical details… Shot on the Canon 5D MkII, primarily with the 24-70mm L/f2.8. All run and gun, natural/available light except in the club/bar scenes. There we had one cheap work light (the kind you buy at Home Depot) on a stand, blasting through the white screen of a Westcott 5in1 Reflector. Not ideal, but it did the trick. Editing was done in Premiere CS5.5, with Mercury Playback and a Blackmagic DeckLink HD Extreme 3D card. Colour was all done with MagicBullet Looks 2… so pretty nice and easy.
Anyway, it’s a great song, it was fun to shoot and edit. Check it out if you must. Hangover Square by Michelle Rumball.
