So Just for fun over the last couple weeks I have been shooting a video for the band the civil wars for some contest. Here are the results of the shoot...
So been busy working on some production videos for some different music videos and commercial videos, but wanted to post something up here. Scary thing the other day a piece of recording gear that is part of my live set up and used for recording called a firepod fm10 started smoking in my rack system. If I hadn't been in the room, probably would have destroyed that whole rack station or burneded the place down. Anyway have to go repurchase that piece of equipment. Here is that video of a song idea. And update you soon on how the video productions are going.
Going through one of my laptops I noticed the high volume of Pics I have, these pics come from the Alive Video.
These are just a few of the photos from the actual video, check the photo area if you want to view some more of them. Overall this video was shot in a day, some during the day, but mostly at night around various locations with an old mirror as the focal point of most of the pictures. Later on in Adobe Photoshop they were edited into the pictures you see now. The song was written in about 2 hours, this version of the song has a few flaws here and there and some mixing problems. The official video is being shot around San Diego, parts of the Grand Canyon, and a few towns, and different beaches in Arizona and along the pacific coast line. It is a first person point of view video that focuses around living life to the fullest and will show a man falling in love even in his bleakest year of his life.
Be well. John (Long December Rain).
So during practice for solo shows, decided to film this video. This is actually the tenth take for this song. I kept having trouble with looping the guitar before going to horn part. I have actually changed it around so now the horn part is going to be four measures instead of just two, and the chorus drums have changed. I bought some different compressor gear for mixing and tried it on this kick in the song and it gives it an amazing deep kick. I didn't realize the lighting was so bad in this until I had already shot it, but at least fixed it for the Poor Boy song I did an hour later.
