We shot it at CAC studios in Santa Monica. One Cam, no additional lighting. We were really going for a backstage, reality, gritty feel which I accentuated by adding some grain, contrast and muting the colors a bit.
I also added some lighting effects, 2.5D text to integrate with the footage via camera tracking, and I also did a little rotoscoping. I may have been a little heavy handed with the color grading, but I like the overall look and feel as it fits the vision and is an improvement on the stock camera images. I’ve been doing a fair amount of editing, but it’s been a while since i shot and edited a project start to finish so this was pretty refreshing.
J.T. is a talented artist who is coming into his own musically and is definitely worth a listen. Check him out here : Allow me to reintroduce myself EP
