Director : Guy Davies
Southern skies music promo was scheduled as a 2 day shoot, so spent the weekend down in Bristol.
Down In Bristol , I left a day earlier so myself and Guy can discuss the look and feel of the video, also how to fully execute the backgrounds changing consistently behind the band members effectively. Which was all tied in to doing a recce.
First day we shot the band performances in three different locations, which meant for quick setups and turn around. The last location of the first day, the weather faired in our favour, It began to downpour which is what we wanted, we got some amazing shots of the water splashing off the cymbals in the rain and created a look which strongly contrasted the model in the wheat fields on the second day. Bright sunny and beautiful. of course if this was scheduled the other way around, well it would be a completely different story. Matt Allsop did steadicam and usual was stellar.
Shot an RED Epic with an old school Angénieux lens and a set of Superspeeds I was very happy with the look and feel of the video.
A good few day’s shooting.
