This, by far, was one of the funnest sets we have been on yet! It was great to work with these group of guys again. This music video will also be accompanied with a narrative. The shooting for that is Saturday, April 13th.
The original plan for this video was outside in a field, however, rain was in the forecast. The drummer, Josh Qualls, was able to hook us up with his grandfathers warehouse and it was a perfect location. The warehouse surroundings provided a great depth to the shoot. Another perk of shooting inside a massive warehouse was we were able to drive the vehicles right in. Instead of carrying all of the equipment up two flights of stairs (like on our previous shoot), we only had to carry stuff a few feet. I was also grateful for Jared, Justin's brother, to help us with the shoot. This helped with me having to carry and lift much less =). Another plus!
I shot this entire session with the 16-35mm lens. It was a fun creative lens to use for a shoot like this. I hope you enjoy all of these pictures. The band did a phenomenal job once again and they are such a great group of people to work with!
We are so thankful for the apple boxes my Pa built us! We just showed him what we wanted and the next time we came in he had them made and painted for us! He is so awesome and we are so blessed to have him! Justin used them on so many of the shots in the video, such as having to stand on them here.
Our set up in the middle of the warehouse.
Oh, ya know, just Justin doing a little free lensing for some b-roll shots.
Sometimes photography requires awkward positions. Apparently videography does too!
We were even able to use this forklift to get a cool above shot. Props to Quall's grandfather for coming up with the idea!
We even made time at the end for a few band photos.
And thank you Jared for standing in to let me check my lighting!
