Slow motion alternative in music videos
Cassiano Zanon posted a topic in Camera OperatingHi guys, im new here, and i'd like some advice. I own a Canon 6d + 24-105mm, and i'm going to shoot a music video for a hip hop/trap artist. I've only shot a hardcore punk music video, and it was very fast paced and with several cuts. This time it seems to be different. Upon searching references, such as Post Malone, Travis Scott, etc, most, if not all videos rely heavily on slow motion scenes. Even the song the artist sent me is much calmer and sort of romatic than the others. But since the 6d can't shoot faster than 30fps at 1080p (if can with magic lantern, but the tests i made didn't turn up so good), i'm looking for alteranatives, and i strongly believe that the lack of resources boosts creativity and this might just allow me to create something different (I'm thinking different cuts, camera movements, etc) For instance, the artist want a scene with a woman in a white wolf mask at the beach at nightfall, kind of abstract, symbolic. And unfortunetely i can only thing of this in slow motion, but i'm sure it's just that i can find the right inspiration. I've been searching for movie scenes and music videos that could inspire me to have more ideas, and honestly i feel like slow motion is overrated and overused these days in music videos, so i'd like to move away from that but still keep this sort of poetic, emotional, abstract feel. Could you guys share some videos, scenes, thoughts, techniques and ideas that could work in a more symbolic and meatphorical scenario? I'll keep reading the forum and searching for more inspiration, but on google it's hard to find anything that DOESN'T involve slow motion when i search this subject. Thanks in advance! Cassiano.
Shooting with fake rain, water towers, etc
Manu Delpech posted a topic in General DiscussionI think I asked someone about this here but I can't find a trace of it. Basically, I'm going to have a big scene in a film involving rain at night in like a residential street. I've tried to find as much as I could about it but I figured I'd ask here and might gleam some good advice from folks who have experience with that. I plan to shoot the whole film very wide, long shots, few cuts. Which I guess will be a plus since there will be no use of any cranes, it'll be a lot of dolly work. So I don't plan to frame the action above a certain height, let's say a little above the height of a pick up truck. This means we probably won't need super high water towers. Now, what should I absolutely know or be aware of before shooting a scene like this?

Finding Gigs/ Gigs Finding you
Alejandro Ramos posted a topic in Jobs, Resumes, and ReelsHey everyone, I have a question I'm sure that gets brought up a lot, but I'd figure I'd ask anyway. How do you all go about finding your gigs and your work? More so, how do gigs/ producers find you? It seems in this industry when you ask someone these question, everyone wants to stay very secretive about it because they feel the need to protect where they're source is. So I wanted to post this here to see if any one would be willing to discuss this. Thanks in advance and happy filming!
Advice for filming in the desert?
John W. King posted a topic in In Production / Behind the ScenesHello, all! We are preparing to shoot a film out in West Texas (in the middle of the desert) soon. Our concerns are primarily with the heat (temperatures are expected to be a high of 101F) and bathrooms (as we will be far away from any nearby restroom). Additionally, we will be filming with RED cameras, and have a cast/crew of roughly 15-20 people. We have it in our plan to bring tents, massive fans, and water in bulk for breaks. And, we anticipate taking a 3-4 hour break during midday (when temperatures peak). However, we will have a lead actor in a fully black, long-sleeved/long-legged costume, plus another actor in a full body armor suit (a prop robot suit). Would any one care to share some advice, given past experiences with filming in similar situations? Thanks! John
