In a previous lesson my group had the pleasure of talking to a professional in the creative sector for the Specsavers company. We were able to receive some feedback from him about our practise work and some features on premiere pro that will help us during post production.
One of the key elements we spoke about was lighting, this is because the rock genre benefits greatly from the use of shadows and highlights to give the environment contrast and life. We were told a great way of controlling lighting was to use multiple light sources to cover a larger or more specific area. Colour was also another mention as light walls reflect better and give a more even spread of the lighting throughout, dark walls on the other hand absorb light and may allow you to create a silhouette of the performers to give them that mysterious unidentifiable image.
Secondly, we were shown some editing features that allow us to modify lighting and image quality in post production. This included exploring the features of Lumetri colour correction, video opacity and overlay, and the many tint features which added a grain on a video clip. He then explained how using each of these features in moderation can give a very dark undertone which suits the rock genre fairly well. A final word from him was that although lighting is important, we have to focus on getting a good amount of it and not overdoing each effect in the final draft.
Having received this in depth feedback and being taught a few new features that may assist in our final video, my group will be able to produce a more appealing and unique music video.
