“Growing Up” by Ryan McCartan was shot on a 7D with the 24-105mm zoom lens. We also used for the first time in a video the new Black magic pocket camera using an adapter we put the 10-22mm lens on it. The 7D was mounted on the Redrock shoulder mount kit, and the Black Magic camera was mounted on a monopod.
For Ryan’s new video this week we were keeping with the most recent aesthetic of natural light and light-hearted tunes. The song was a simple composition of some beat-boxing mixed together with a looper pedal. Once Ryan built the beat with the looper pedal, he was free to kick back and sing.
With this video we wanted a really laid back and relaxed look and feel. The light was a little cloud covered which gave us a nice consistent light, but it was a little dark. We didn’t plan out the shoot as much as usual and decided to kick back with Ryan and shoot in a relaxed way, shooting loose and going with what he threw at us.
He had a blast with the shoot and at the end we taught Ryan how to actually play a little FIFA.
The editing was easy and the black magic footage looked great. Unfortunately color correcting got in the way of us trying to release the video when we wanted to (Thursday morning at 9am) so we had to release it Friday morning(ish). Then after the video was released, we noticed a huge issue with the footage syncing with the audio, so we had to pull the video down, change it, export and load it back up as quick as we could. All in all the video turned out to be a little more difficult than expected, but new challenges and issues present themselves when working with new equipment.
Until next time.
