    I shot this for a local band/my friends, Zack Mexico. I did a music video for them about a year ago, and we are currently working on a new one. This was just something fun that I threw together rather quickly since they have a new album coming out this summer.

    Shot all with a cheapo eBay CCTV 25mm/1.4 C-Mount lens. ISO 3200. Shutter speed, 1/40. Aperture varied, but mostly wide open. GH2 with Driftwood's Moon Trial 5 patch. Audio is from the show, recorded with a Tascam dr07 mkII.

    If you have epilepsy or sensitivity to flashing lights, you may want to pass...

    Thanks for the video.

    The sound came out great. The moving/flashing lights, smoke machine and the flare from the lens makes a pretty image.

    Nicely done. The c-mount lens worked for the artsy effect. The only thing that I would change is making the text at the end a little easier to read.

    ^ I thought the same thing about the text, but I got tired of messing around with it. I showed the guys and they didn't mind, so I left it as it was. Thanks for the comments

    I would try adding a slight outer glow in a white or a very light color to the text. If it is very small and say 66% opacity I bet it would help make the text far more readable without detracting. I like the font however, what is it?

    Thanks for the tip. The font is 'Blake,' I got it from dafont.com
