Since nobody has complained very much so far – and since, after all, this is still my blog – I don’t suppose it would be pushy if I kept pimping out the various video projects here and there that I’m working on in my non-reviewing life? Okay? Excellent, because I’ve got another one.
This is, in fact, a momentous step forward for me: the first time I’ve actually finished a music video that I started (after three stalled-out attempts). I shot it for a buddy of mine from college, Robert Jarosinski, and his band Convergence (their site is right here), as part of the lead-up to the band’s new album Umbrella Spokes, coming out later this month.
Do please pay special attention to how elegantly it has been formatted. It took me way too long to figure out how to make a 16×9 mp4.
And cutting off the obvious criticism at the pass: yes, that’s one hell of a shaky tracking shot. One does what one can with the equipment at hand, and on a no-budget shoot of dubious legality, a dolly is about as easy to come by as an anthropomorphic unicorn to push it.
