Shot this music video over the weekend at an Undisclosed Warehouse Location. Shane recorded a cover of Ne-Yo’s new single “Forever Now” which he wanted a quick music video of.
This was not a full production music video shoot, as with the When Boy Meets Girl music video series. Goal for this shoot was simplicity and speed.
Some of the things I experimented with:
- Convey open space. Did so through location setup: where the performer was in relation to the environment, and marking out distances through use of lights.
- 4 set angles: scene shot from the front, left closeup, right closeup, guitar closeup
- framing: experimented with tilted angles and kept facial features in left third and right thirds of the shot
- Camera movement in relation to framing, light sources, and key angles of the performer (usually above or below eyeline)
Color Correction & Grading
Front Scene Shot – Tilted Angle (reveal movement on dolly)
Right Angle – Mouth Closeup to Emphasize Singing
Scene Shot – Right Angle
