Satlan - (In)Sanity Music Video
Was a little bit busy last week after being involved with shooting and editing Satlan’s music video for (In)Sanity. I say “being involved”, it was just me shooting and editing so a fair bit of effort, but I had a lot of fun making it.
Here’s the final product! Also, like and subscribe to my Youtube channel as I intend to upload more stuff there!
Been a long time since I have undertaken any kind of video project, especially one that required a lot of editing like this one. It’s a frantic song, so required a few little tricks to enhance that feeling. One easy trick is to play the song back slower on playback whilst shooting, then speed the footage up to sync it with the song playing at regular speed. Every movement becomes a bit more exaggerated, which is what we wanted, and the skipped frames that would happen (as I shot at 25fps, and then exported at 25fps) made everything a bit more erratic.
Editing-wise I made a lot of cuts, and inserted some public domain footage that fit the mood of the song and lyrics. This was an idea I discussed with the band beforehand, so we had plenty of time to source footage before shooting. Then into After Effects to apply the film effects, zooms, and a few other effects to make the video a bit more intense and unpredictable.
