Please enjoy a video I directed for Sam Brenner from his Here at Home Sessions. Shot in our home, it is the first of many videos to be brought to you by myself and our team.
This video was a collaborative effort of, Sam Brenner, Basil Pinzone, Brandon Slechta and Ross Newbauer. This video was recorded prior starting Sam’s Here at Home EP. This was one take and was one of four videos we recorded that day. These videos will slowly see the light of day.
Production was pretty simple. For cameras we had three static DSLRs and one camera on a rail mount. For audio we had six mics set up around the room. The two main mics are visible in the video and the other four were placed around the room to get the rooms presence. All of that was being captured to my 1640 and into Pro Tools.
It was all pieced together in Premiere in the span of a couple of days. It was a little bit hard to try and color balance the different cameras and we really just didn’t have the time balance them more. The audio was magic. There is absolutely no EQ on any of the mics. It’s just all balance of the levels of the mics. I could have done a little bit but i was so impressed with the sound that i wanted to keep it a little more raw and keep it sounding exactly like it did as if you were in the room.
All and all this was a pretty great first video. We plan on releasing one a month at the longest. They might not all have exactly as much attention to detail but they will all be very planned out and as original as possible. Thank you for all of you who helped promote the release of this video.
