The dark footage also looks more effective. We also wanted a wall of fairy lights in the background for the crescendo of the song and the original location would facilitated this but in this location it wouldn't have worked.
Yes this is our first official music video. We shot another one a few months back for another band and are in the early editing stages so I'll post it once it's done.
Have you guys shot videos yourselves?
Yeah unfortunately with video making comes all these problems, i know them
Good result considering what happened, and yeah id say this is better than if you had had the bright sections in. You would have needed maybe a story section of video to bridge the contrast change or something.
Yeah i make films and music videos, here is a link to my first proper music video (which is my best so far i think)
and here are two others that are just ok, nothing special.
and here is my facebook page where i just put all my
videowork as it comes out
