35mm adapter music video "Stay Up Late"
Last night I wanted to test out my diy 35mm adapter so I got a friend over and we made this music video. We recorded the song live also which I thought was a neat touch (crickets and far away traffic).
I used only a single lens (50mm 1.4) and I'm pretty sure I dont have infinity focus, but I'll get to that someday.
Anyhoo, the artist is Adam Pereira, and the song is Stay up Late.

you should upload it to Video. 30MB is a big file to wait for a .mov

Alright, lots of views, no comments about the video. Either it's really bad and you're embarrassed for me, or it's real good and you have nothing to add, or it's just boring lol.
I really would like to get some feedback about the piece.

I loved what you did. I am new to shooting videos so I have more questions than critiques. How many takes did you shoot. What type of dof are you using. And is the vignette natural? Also what workflow did you use? The angles were very good!!!!

I shot 5 or 6 takes with different angles. I am using a dof I bought/built myself. vignette would be natural as I didn't add any. I use FCP as my editor, my workflow flowed as follows, setup lights, record song, shoot angles, drink coffee, shoot angles, tear down, capture footage, edit, compress and export, upload to web, post everywhere.

I liked it a lot. What did you mic with. I'm inches away from doing the same thing. I think I will record in a couple of tracks in GarageBand with my Shure SM58 and my acoustic guitar and then sing and play into it while video taping. I improvise as I go to but they say it is easier than it looks to follow and sing into ourselves. -- So it would end up with the pre recorded GarageBand music and voice and a bunch of video like you did. I know there are better mics but mine works good and I like it. -- It is said that sound quality alone can carry a bad video and make it good. I believe that.

I mic'd with a sennheiser mke300 and tested a few positions between mouth and guitar to see which provided a balance we liked then we did the first take that way. then captured into FCP and played back while we did the other takes. Actually sorry, we captured direct to fcp and to tape. my bad I forgot.
the recorded music was done in one take, not split into guitar and vocals.
