    finished my first music video (took 4 months)

    Hey guys, i've just finished my first music video for a band called Big Face. they're debut single (i wanna be a style crusader) is getting released on Kitsune on the 26th of November.

    as noted in the title the video took 4 months, 3 months of planning, printing, pulling in favours, etc. then 2 weeks of production, 9 days of which were spent in a pretty mankey squat in east london (in a tent...) working 20 hour days. it was directed and produced by myself and my design partner Tim brown on the tinyest of bugets (pulled in alot of favours).

    i know this should prolly go into the video section but the reason i'm posting it here is to try and get as many people to see it and hopefully pass it on to friends, etc. if anyone knows any music bloggers or online journalists that would maybe want write a review of the single or video that would also be very much appreciated.

    there's virtually no CG in this video, basically the whole thing was done by hand using laborius stop frame, sometimes 30 mins setup between each frame.

    anyway hope you enjoy it. we're pretty happy with it, appart from the over contrast youtube compressed it with...

    Thanks.

    p.s. heres the embed code if anyone wants to embed it in they're myspace or anything:

    <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/HAhJdOpeWFo&rel=1"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/HAhJdOpeWFo&rel=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="355"></embed></object>

    gotta say the first minute or so was pretty slow and seemed very chinsy. However, once you got to about 2.5 minutes in, it got really good. I can see why it took you so long.

    I have two gripes.
    1) i wish you would have found a way to not see the tape on the box. I think that really takes away from your production value here
    2) Your discochimp footer is too big. Footer rules are here: http://board.flashkit.com/board/showthread.php?t=710156

    nice job on the video.

    hey man, cheers for replying.

    aye, in a perfect world we would have been able to take them off in post or get boxes that were self sealing. unfortunatly the buget was aweful, really aweful. to the point that we ended up spending a fair bit of our own money to make ends meet on it. but it was worth it to get the video finished.

    i'll sort the footer soon as i get near photoshop.

    Cheers.

    Things are good; not as good as you it seems though! Glad to see that immense amount of talent being put to good use and shared with the world.

    Again, congrats.
