Thavy Ear – ‘For Your Ears Only’ music video
Here’s the ‘For Your Ears Only’ music video I made for Thavy Ear, from her EP of the same name. The video was shot over a number of months and involved a number of reshoots, as Thavy was quite particular about what she wanted, which turned out to be a good thing for the video, even though it wasn’t my normal way of doing things.
Locations used included Erskinville, a rooftop in Surry Hills, a park in Marrickville and a few other random locations around Sydney’s inner west.
On one day of shooting, I’d actually left my camera battery at home. Quite unprofessional I know, although I ended up using the camera on my Lumia 800 phone which worked out quite nicely in the end, even its camera shot at random frame rates. It took a few tweaks, but I got it working.
Lastly, below is a screenshot of the finished project in Sony Vegas. This was from an earlier revision which still had some colour. I rendered it in colour as a Cineform avi file, and then desaturated it using the Cineform/GoPro software which altered the metadata of the video file.
As for the editing, it all went quite smoothly, apart from the usual Sony Vegas crashes every so often.
