Someone on twitter shared this a few days ago. I don’t know what it was shot on but I thought is was well done. Check it out:
WOODKID – RUN BOY RUN – Video directed by Yoann Lemoine
I just wanted to include this video to really hit home the fact that you don’t need to go out and buy a $3000 camera to shoot great stuff, music video shot on two Canon 550Ds.
I was told that they only had 3 hours to get the coverage they needed and only 4 full takes with the ballerina as the routine was 6mins long.
“We knew we had to work fast when we arrived and had planned for that, only being able to do a few takes is something that I try and avoid at all costs as coverage is king when it comes to music videos.
Our original location was an abandon factory that had a great rustic space with missing sections of roof however after watching the already choreographed ballet routine we knew that we would need a bigger space along with tarkett to cover the entire floor space and tarkett is not the lightest stuff to be lugging around to abandon factories. The people at CarriageWorks Sydney were great, use to having shoots take place in their large refurbished train sheds were more then accommodating, what’s more they supplied the tarkett. Shooting and covering action that incorporates such a large space was difficult as planning for coverage is not the same as shooting what you can get as we kind of had to do working with limited takes. However you do what you can and work with what you have got and if the client is happy I am happy which he was.” Richard
