After criticizing Mr. Vegas's music video, I came across a music video I produced and directed myself a while back and well, boy o boy, I can criticize it until infinity.
I was young (still am actually) so I was younger with less film experience. Excitment and the chaos of film making got to me and I over looked some things that would have made a big difference in the video, to make it go from 'Ok' to 'waoa'. However, along with inexperience comes lack of patience, hence when you get things done, you do not necessarily think thoroughly about it. Check out the video;
Problems? Where do I start!
Lack of a solid concept & story line. Choreography? well, needs ALOT more work done. Camera movements could have been more dynamic, but it's not so bad. And talking about lighting on the artist in my previous post, yes ladies & gentlemen, I know my ending has bad lighting on my artist specially, but hey, I was only about twenty one and still in film school? does that pardons me? Nahh, I think not.
One thing I am happy about though, three years later, I know I can do ten times better :) And I think that's what counts most.
