A live music video for All Our Exes
ginja ninja were asked to film and edit music videos of ‘All Our Exes Live in Texas’ performing two songs live without audience ahead of a concert they played at the Oxford Art Factory. This was to provide live music video content for fans.
Shooting a live music video is a tricky business because the nature of it’s ‘live-ness’ means that you don’t have a track to playback to – giving you the option of multiple takes in the edit.
We shot multicam using 2 tripod mounted 5D mark III’s cross shooting the stage on close ups with a Blackmagic production camera set on tripod for a wide and another 5D Mark II in the wings for a side angle. We did 2-3 initial takes per song and then once we had one that we were all happy with, we could this to create a live sound mix. This was then used as playback to shoot two more takes giving us the option to insert some addition footage during the edit to cover camera moves.
