Technically accomplished, aesthetically rich, great looking girl with good voice.
I just didn't get the point of it, I felt it was weak when it came to narrative and this was belied by the repition of angles and shots.
You have the skills, maybe some more time on concept and treatment.
If I was shooting stuff this nice looking a year and a half in I'd have been delighted.
May I ask if everything was down to you? I eork extensively with a producer who can't even rig a single light, but two heads are better than one, I just think this video needs more ideas, all the elements are there, just needs a stronger foundation or structure.
I really hate to come accross as negative, or even condescending, but you asked for my opinion, which is largely positive, especially considering the modest kit used.
Final grumble. I hate idents. You don't see them on mtv. It detracts from the act, and sorry to say, ultimately you are subservient to the act, you are making a video for them, they aren't singing for you. Sad to say but uf you are doing your job well most folk won't even register you were even involved.
Just an opinion. You should be very proud of this. I really look forward to seeing what you make next. Without an ident.
Thanks Paul! To be completely honest, her & I had planned to execute a different song. After about an hour in the studio down & still not sounding right we decided to completely switch everything up, & I had her do a song she was much more comfortable with (Marvin's Room). Given that, we had run out of time and I was only able to get 2 takes inside the studio, which didn't come out too great in my opinion, but we still thought we would use a few clips.
As far as the Ident, if I understand you correctly. We just released a new brand of ours (Motif Media Girls) with her (Kirin) being the first feature. So It did feel somewhat necessary to tag the beginning, considering we do want people to know she is in-fact our artist.
I really appreciate the input & your time!
