Acid JAC – Deja Vu

Owen Conti and I have been working like crazy this week to film, edit and color correct our latest project, a full length music video for Acid JAC. Going into the project, we really didn’t want to create a sort of “cookie cutter” typical music video. We had plans for a story going on along with the jamming footage. After realizing that we had one day to shoot all the footage, and a week to edit, a cookie cutter video was all we had time for. There were a few issues we can address for our next video project, but we learned a ton about shooting proper flat footage and color correcting that footage in post.

Regardless, we are super happy with how it turned out. Check it out.

  1. Wow Jeff this is great, did you do a couple reruns of this and shoot at different times, or did you have a couple cameras set up?

    1. Thanks!

      We shot everything in one night over the course of about 4 hours or so. Set up was pretty much 6 hours on top of that.

      We basically shot the whole band jamming through the whole song three or four times with one camera shooting a planned tripod shot and the other mounted to a steadycam shooting improv handheld stuff. Then we did a couple individual shots in front of a huge softbox and a few runs through just filming drums.

      We had planned on adding a story line to mix in, and we had a bunch of shots planned but we ran out of time. Regardless, pretty happy with how it turned out. The color correction and grading took forever.

  2. yeah i thought you did have more than one camera set up and more that one rerun.
    must have been tedious work. its looks clean nonetheless, and i think its a job well done.
