After picking myself up off the floor following my discovery of the sticker price for Canon’s C200 batteries, I decided to look at other options. I have seen people using V-Mount and Anton Bauer Gold Mount batteries for while, but they remained a mystery to me until push came to shove once my new camera was on its way.
I recently purchased the new Canon C200 and decided to shoot some test footage to compare it with the Canon C100.
As a Chicago music video director, I am always striving to hone my craft by using news tools and techniques. My latest music video for Marcus Matteo was my first 4k project and I shot it almost exclusively in 4k DCI with a Canon 1D X Mark II camera.
Caleb Minter asked me to create a black & white music video for his single ‘Gone Too Soon,’ which is dedicated to his older brother Clarence Minter Jr. who was killed by gun violence.
The mood of the song ruled the day when it came to coming up with the art direction for this video. Long cuts, smooth movement and soft yet dramatic lighting was used to bring out the emotion’s of Marcus Matteo’s voice and the precision picking of guitarist Daniel Peters.
