" Attack of the Hadedahs" music Video
INT car day. Chase sequence
This shot is part of a chase sequence in a music video about a bunch of guys that get lost in the woods on their way to a gig and get attacked by a giant hadedah bird.The music video is designed as an B grade horror movie. I especially enjoyed this as it was fun to make. We used a lot of old primes that produced soft edges with a beautiful soft glow in the highlights. We approached everything in an unconventional way. We broke continuity a lot, shifted lines, moved the lighting around, over exaggerated performances together with the expected cliches of that genre.
This particular shot is a homage to Jurassic park. ( where the T. rex chases them) The interior was filmed in studio. I chose to over light a little to add a little surrealism. It feels brighter interior that exterior. I wanted to push that studio feel. I used a 4 ft 4 bank kino as a key through the side windows. This was softened with a 216.
I chose to only subtly back light the car for the key but left the interior dark except the driver so all we really notice is the bird and her.
The driving plate was shot separately and added later with the CGI bird.
