So the music is made by Frank Malm under the guise of Subliminal Moon and I wanted to do a test to see the quality using a mobile phone for filming. The video has some things to be desired but there is some parts that I think came out pretty successful. Also learned a lot specially what kind of lights would be more effective. There was two mobile used one Samsung Galaxy S3 and one Samsung S6. The S6 comes into play in the end of the video and feels that it is more digital but I think it has to do with that on the other mobile the ASA is set to 800 and gives a grainier look and to me looks more organic. There was no special lights used and it does look good under low lightning and feels better than the parts with more full on lights.
All the filming was done in just a little bit more than one hour as it was late wanting to film when it was dark outside. The children wanted to eat...
But that was great as it was another thing to see what can be accomplished under such conditions. Because if this is the result being rushed it can get very good if there is some time to plan the shots and rig the lightning better and in general plan everything more.
Need to point out though that it is edited in a desktop as do not want to torture myself editing on a small screen with too many limitations.
Maybe worth mentioning to that everything was filmed with hand held camera and with still shots as one thing that mobiles are not so good at is to have faster movements.
The movement can in part be added in the editing afterwards. It is just something to have in mind.
Frank is working on a new track and we will do another short film with mobiles but this time put in some more effort!
P.S- The music is composed in Caustic without effects and mixed in Reaper.
