Fantastic as always. Love your work

What locations are in this video?

Thanks. The location that looks kind of like a set with the curved walls was shot at the Disney concert hall in Downtown LA. The other locations included Rodeo Dr, Venice Beach, a Burbank recording studio, and a hotel room with a view in Century City.

Damn it Mr Fox!

How is it that you always get to film beautiful women in skippy outfits in lovely, sun-drenched locations, while I'm stuck with making music videos for sweaty, male, ageing rock bands. It's simply not fair!

Anyway, nice work as always - obviously, the singer is very beautiful so I think you'd have struggled to make her look bad, but I do really like choice of shots - especially the reflective background and balcony. The video has a very simple narrative to it, but it does its job very well and look very slick.

Nice one, and again, you are one lucky MOFO!

Nice locations. What are the technical specs?

haha Thanks. Yeah, the video Im shooting in a month will try to have a stronger narrative arc. I'm learning each video.

technical specs- canon t3i. The reflective wall enviornment first verse was shot using a kit 18-55mm. I learned if you want to make the shot more filmic, zoom in and frame at 28mm or 35mm.

Dolly shots in the first verse were done by using a camera slider with a manfrotto joystick which allows me to move in directly without seeing the slider in the shot. Without it you can only move horizontally with a slider.

The lens used in the last verse with the sunset background was a 50mm 1.8 lens. You have no choice using that lens with afternoon light. The 18-55mm doesn't open very far to let in more light so the images will be grainy. The 1.8 opens wide enough with some amateur lights to get a sharper image with minimal grain.

Very nice. Really liked the flow of the video, no harsh cuts.

I enjoyed it.
