For the first time I give up the Green Screen for the production. Even the on site recordings are not from myself, but what breathtaking material! In July 2020 a crop circle appeared near the Bavarian Ammersee. Mike decided to use this unique location for the shoot of his music video Luvsick. It’s about an outer space love affair and the mysterious unworldly cereals appearance fit perfect to this music output.
You can create great thinks with the studio screen, but i must admit that a one site recording will win for sure. It looks way more realistic and I claim that it’s less complex than a recording on a small 2x3m green screen.
The longest music video I`ve ever made has been created. Also the most cuts were done.
Learned many new things. The imported ones were the stronger video orientation on the base of the music and the usage of color gradings.
A great new intuition was the embedding of the lyrics. My first intention was the i use Apple Motion for that, but realized fast that this is to costly. So i search for the easier and faster option..
Found a nice affordable lyrics plugin for Final Cut from FxFactory. That did the job quite well. It’s fastly installed and easy to use. It comes with many presets and motions for the text, which can be customized with individual fonts, colors and text positions. Even if i should switch from Final Cut to a Adobe product, it’s still compatible with Premiere and After Effects. That’s a awesome service and made about 50$ a fair price for me.
