Shooting a high quality music video doesn’t have to cost the earth, and there is plenty of great kit out there to help you achieve polished, broadcast quality looks.
I’ll be taking a look at some of these awesome tools in a series of posts looking into ways to shoot music videos on a budget.
Two weeks ago we received a very cryptic message from DJI inviting us to a ‘product launch’ – but what product was this going to be?
We arrived at the launch a bit confused, not helped by the fact they were serving a strange looking blue cocktail in-keeping with their brand colour, each to their own! We then gathered round and saw a complex animation which was projected on a transparent screen whilst a man behind the screen was acting out the video through dance.
Just over two months ago we began the quest to find Richard Forne the perfect camera for him..
After having discussed quite a few options and finding out the things which Richard needed – he was finding it hard to choose one as there are so many great cameras around at the moment, comparing himself to a ‘kid in a candy shop’
One of the cameras that were up for consideration was the Panasonic HC X1000 – this was based on its ability to shoot 4K 50p but when Richard got his hands on it he found it wasn’t practical for his needs.
