This is me just having a good time experimenting with some video techniques I’ve been working on. One of my goals is to shoot some short films this summer, and I need practice with camera angles, story boarding, lighting as well as editing workflows. I really like the Black Keys and this song gave me an interesting idea for a video. It was actually a two part deal because I also am helping my brother with his website called Guns For Everyone and wanted a creative piece for a post.
I shot this using a Kodak zi8 and was literally coming up with the idea as I went. I did have a storyboard in mind but that’s because I liked the song and used the lyrics to guide the sequence. I used a small tripod and positioned i many different times to get all the angles I wanted then edited the video in iMovie. I love iMovie for editing because it makes the production simplified. For advanced editing I like Adobe Premiere. I hope you enjoy it and I will keep making more videos.
If you are in the Atlanta area and are interested in collaborating on some video ideas, please hit me up because I’d love to start a once a month meetup or something to discuss projects and even shoot some videos together.
