Yo guys and the rare girl,

I was chosen and asked to direct a music video a couple of months ago, so here I am and its only a couple of days away! The budget was confirmed a couple of week ago and I've done all I can to get everything in place, have a crew of 12 people including some pretty experienced feature film assistant directors on my team. Have great locations, a great band and seven lovely dancers.

On the Saturday I film in a poledancing/private venue for the cutaways, and on the Sunday I film in the 2nd location and gig area with 150 extras.

150 extras. Oh what fun that'll be! smile

Anyways, if anyone from Fxhome wants to pop along and lives in the UK (the shoot is in Peterborough) then drop me a PM on here and you can come on the Sunday and get into the crowd for the video. It's going to MTV channels and music vid channels when its all done as the rock band launch their album and release the single in the next few months.

I also hope to have access to a Ferrari Enzo for the Saturday evening for a few shots. Which should be interesting if it does come along. I don't think I'll even touch it for fear of owing someone £500,000.

Here goes nothing!! wink

Well, you guys should be clever enough to know that with google you could use the clues in the original post to work out the bands name!

Keywords should be all there as a couple of press articles (local newspapers) have run stories on it.

Thanks for the good luck guys smile

We may be clever enough, but we're damned lazy.

Yeah- I figured out the clues rather quickly. I've never heard of that band however. Are they new?

Aye, they are new to the scene Bryce, actually knowing what kinda music you like you'd probably take a fancy to them!

Pretty sure you missed the point of him not revealing it, Donut.

Hey no worries! wink All revealed now. The Ferrari Enzo has just been confirmed as well but only for 1.5 hours. Will be interesting to see if I can get it to work in any shots at all unsure Maybe I'll just go for a spin and not return!

Hey guys,
So the shoot is over!

It went well, my voice is lost and yesterdays pace of filming was insane! The press came down on both days to take many photos for various magazines! Managed to get all the key ingredients into a music video that are needed! A black Ferrari, poledancers, dancers, gambling, gig scene, glamour models and lots of crowd.

Will post up some photos when I get them sent over to me!

smile

P.S - Panasonic HXP-500 is a brilliant brilliant camera, and the HJ21 Lens is stunning!

Probably something to do with the song...

Probably meaning he is blinded by who he is and what he has.
