The Weather

Very proud of this little music vid flick thingo for Canberra band Kempsey... You might dig it. If you do, let me know what you think. All made over a few nights with a crew of two, 50mm lenses and some hellraising. A million thanks to everyone involved for all your time and patience.



If you're having trouble viewing, you can also see the clip here -

The band are doing some new tracks and demos and there should be a proper single release and video release in a month or two. Until then, I'll just hide it here in the wilds of the blogworld.

what camera did u use?

The Buoy Archives said...

we used 2 x 5DmkII each with a 50mm lens. we also used an LED spotlight masked down with cinefoil for the vignettes. mostly we shot with the one camera but occasionally, when things were hectic, we ran both.

25fps or 30fps..?

The Buoy Archives said...

ah, it was prior to the firmware upgrade, so we shot at 30fps which has been a bit of a bitch due to the amount of movement in the chorus sections... frameblending has been a bit evil. we shot another clip on 25fps a couple of weeks later and that has been effortless. still, we reckon it comes up a treat.

This has come up a treat! Well done guys, love the energy, the faces and the light. Damn that 5d looks good, very exciting.

brilliant.

that one shot on the street with the smoke from that old van's tyres and the intense light. glorious.

there is something very brown + grey about canberra. which i always thought of as unattractive, but you made it look amazing. congratulations - you've sent me into a nostalgia spin.

the brown and grey is the best bit!

Beautiful clip! Great work Rhys! Perfect use of the 5D's low light capabilities.
