Making Moves 6 – Making a Low Budget Music Video (pt. 1)

This past weekend was a busy one for me. A group of people transformed the living room of my apartment into a music video set and we successfully shot the video for my song “The One Who Got Away.” It’s the third low budget film set I have been a part of in the last two months as my roommate and one of his friends have shot 2 films over that time. Let’s just say that the smell of stale smoke machine air is quite familiar to me now.

It’s a beautiful thing to see it all come together, to see people devote their time and energy to create something bigger than themselves (for free). We rented and borrowed as much as possible, yet still ran up a bit of a tab. Quality has its price.¬†Although the video was in planning for over a month, there were still some unforeseen problems we ran into on the days of the shoot. The problems mostly involved actors (friends) not showing up, and shot setup taking longer than planned. But it helped a lot to write a detailed shot list and schedule.

Photos of the video shoot are up on my facebook page
