Double KO – ‘Avec le Vent Dans le Dos’ music video

Double KO - Avec le Vent Dans le Dos

This is a video I shot and edited for Double KO, a French MC living here in Sydney. The video was shot on my old Canon S95 and can be viewed below.

It was a very spontaneous shoot. I met with him at Central Station, and from there we caught a train to Bondi Junction, and then caught a bus to Bondi Beach. The whole video was shot during this time. And it went well too.

The beauty of a tiny camera like the S95, is that it becomes quite simple to shoot in public without raising suspicion. As you can see in the video itself, we shot quite a lot around the train stations, on the train and bus. One shot on the train platform at Central Station, a couple of takes on the train itself, and one on the bus. The rest were shot at locations around Bondi Junction Station, and of course at Bondi Beach too.

I had the music playing from my Panasonic stereo at a low volume, although for one take Double KO just had the music playing in his headphones. I managed to sync that up alright. In retrospect, having the music play from a phone would have been a better option. Especially one with a decent built in speaker. An iphone 4s woud do a good job. The trouble when shooting out and about is at normally the stereo always appears to be out of place, being so big.

Below you'll find a few before and after shots from the video.

With the colour grade, not much was done. Even though the video appears to be in black and white, there is colour being used. I blended a red to green gradient over the top. You can see that by clicking on the link to the screenshot below. Along with before and after shots.
