Kerser – ‘Losing My Brain’ music video

A refreshing cyan blue coloured video here for a change. As of writing this, Kerser’s latest promo music video that I shot just last week. The weather was quite hot when I shot this. It had been overcast for most of the day, but thankfully the sun came out for the video. Half the video was shot with a lake in the background, as of course you can see, which worked quite nicely.

The biggest problem I had editing this video was the cicadas screeching in the bush around where the video was shot. They were so loud, I could barely hear the music playing in the location audio, which made it difficult to sync up. Normally I can look at the waveforms and line them up, but I could only see what looked like white noise.

The edit went smoothly, although I ended up spending a bit more time on the colour grade. You can see the before and after shots below, along with a screenshot of the project at the bottom which shows all the plugins I used for the colour grade. The AAV and fill light plugins were used to brighten his face a bit more. Levels adjustments as always, were also made to all the individual clips.

Something new I did here was composite some lens flare effects over the top. You can see those in the top track of the screenshot.

One thing you can’t see in the screenshot below is the film grain I added to the overall output. I used Boris FX’s BCC7 film grain plugin with the default preset, but with the grain amount adjusted.
