What to expect with their concepts?

 Still holding on a response from the band, but Maxx Nunn seems great with the project so far. We want to hold a Zoom meeting with their group and start setting the ground for the project. For the mean time, I'm doing some homework about the stylizing and cinematography of alternative punk rock music videos. 

Here are some great examples!

Numb [Official Music Video] - Linkin Park

This video couldn't be a more perfect example. We have a brief story following a girl's personal story of isolation and self-reflection combed in with scenes of the band's performance of the song. They shot their performance within a garage/man-cave/church scene to deliver the goth and dark themes in the video. Nice flavors of layering and shallow-depth of field also contribute lots to the shot sequence. The story seems to also create a connection between the lead performer and the girl character, and she visits the now empty band room at the end of the video. 

Audioslave - Like a Stone (Official Video)

Much like Numb, this recording offers a setup in the early 2000s goth style. However, this video is solely the performance of the band in particular. This gives me some key points to recognize. Depending on how Saving Herald would like to structure their video, there are some things to keep in mind.
  • Set design for the music recording.
  •     Do we capture it live or overlay with the published recording?
  • Do we create a narrative story?
  •     What casting due to COVID-19?
  • Do we use my current gear or do we rent a multitude of cameras to capture the whole live performance in one fellow swoop?
More to discuss on Friday, cheers!
