The £1000 Music Video - Aracara 24/7

Aracara music video Ursa Mini 4.6K

We created a music video for Aracara for £1000… This is how we did it!

Aracara contacted our video production company with a budget of £1000 for her new single 24/7. Her only requests where to keep it minimal, pastel colours and incorporate slow motion. We felt like being a little bit frugal and 500+ miles of driving later we had a 2 man crew to pull the job together. Aracara had a couple of small bits that helped us to make this possible. Her sister is in dance school and came down with a male counterpart to add something a little different to the video.

I have had a slow motion paint idea I have always wanted to put to action, so I showed Aracara some sample images on Pintrest to give her an idea of the vision I had for the video. After we had figured out a basic idea of what the concept and was we booked Cineview Studios in Woolwich, London for the day for £120 which was the perfect size for a small music video like this.

We went with a pink/purple and green colour scheme, blasting a CineoLighting Standard 410 tuned to pink/purple against the back of the cyc wall. We had octobox placed in of to the right in front of Aracara with a green/teal gel. Slightly further to the right we had a Arri 2k firing through a sheet of diffusion and hiting one of our custom made gel frames with a green gel in.

The music video was shoot a BlackMagic Ursa Mini 4.6k with Samyang Cine lenses. Switching between 24mm, 35mm, 50mm and 85mm we got our wide, Mid and close up shots for each scenario we set up.
