MUSIC VIDEO SHOOT-"Pain" Current mood: busy Category: Music
-It's been awhile since CAROLINE BLUE did a video shoot. I believe the last one was with the song "Slave to the Hourglass" in 2006. I love being in music videos-not only for the obvious promotional reasons in helping a band, but also the creative side. Since Doc & Joe had never done a music video before and this was the 1st time we-as a unit-worked with producer Ron Bonk, I kept things pretty simple. Only a few scenes and even they weren't that hard.
-I 1st met Ron when he was doing a video shoot for the band Zadoc...& The Nightmare. I was impressed w/ his work on their video "Bathory's Web." We used to have UVTV shoot our videos but they've moved to another state years ago. I next came in contact w/ Ron last year when he was auditioning for his new movie "Ms. Cannibal Holocaust" (which I have a small role in). We talked on & off from time to time about him shooting some music videos for CAROLINE BLUE and finally, in 2010, the ball got rolling & here we are!
-This was for the song "Pain" which is on the CAROLINE BLUE CD "Not For The Innocent." I've had the guidelines for this video (and several others actually) floating in my head for a few years now. I'd even discussed it w/ Rich from UVTV when they were still in NY state. The video was shot on Monday 2/22/2010 @ The Gear Factory in Syracuse, NY. I'd met with it's owner-Richard Destito-a month earlier and felt this was the right place to help turn my guidelines into reality.
-It took just under 4 hours to get all the shooting done. Ron had brought some extra lights in-which helped a lot. I had Joe bring his lap top & surround sound speakers for play back. This was a lip-synch video-which gives things a more pro look & sound. Doc had brought some mic stands to make things look more "real" (like we were actually playing), but I scrapped that pretty quick. Take a look at our 'Slave to the Hourglass" and/or "Mine, Mine, Mine" lip synch vids. It's pretty obvious very quickly that we're lip syncing-which is fine w/ me. A big thing w/ me in regards to music videos is expression & creativity. We didn't do too much on the creative side, per say, on this, but I believe there's loads of expression in this one.
-Unfortunately, Doc slipped on some ice before things started and hurt his ankle pretty badly. It was also pretty cold in here. I remember seeing Joe standing near the lights a lot for warmth. Ron was very patient w/ us and it was great working w/ him. He even showed us some of the playback of what he filmed. I think he got some really great angles. I had my camcorder off to the side running-hence where a good chunk of the pics came from. I will say though that there's going to be a lot more camera work involved that what those pics suggest.
-There was a possibility of a girl being involved in this shoot via our management GIO Entertainment, but things fell thru at the last minute & they couldn't make it so we just carried on.
-We then went to a Chinese Restaurant to eat & talk over stuff. Joe had 2 1/2 plates and I barely had 1 (have to keep the girlish figure you know-HA!). Doc had 4-5 plates. He said "these places never make their money off of me." :)
-So now starts the editing-which wil be done by Ron. We're all very anxious to see the final results. As soon as we get a copy, we'll let everyone where they can go to see it. Hope you all enjoy the pics and keep checking back for more updates!
