Remember that silly project of mine? I’m still inching ever closer to being done.
I have space for two more random grinders in the video for The Grind, and I could still use a lot more Comandante C40 footage, which I am really surprised has been so hard to get more of because that’s a very popular grinder.
Historically, I’ve gotten a lot of people promising footage which never appeared. Early on in the project I got plenty, quickly, which is how I was able to produce the vast majority of the videos on the same day as the song, or soon after. But these last two tracks have taken so very long to fill out.
So I mean, if you’re interested, now is the time to do it, and don’t let the belief that it’s already covered or that you’ll be beaten to it stop you from recording things. And if I do somehow end up getting more than I need, I’ll still find a use for whatever comes in!
Anyway. I was really hoping to have this done by the end of December; heck, I was hoping to have it done by the end of November. But, y'know. Life happens, and especially right now a lot of folks are traveling for the holidays. So I’ll take what I can get.
I just really want to have this silly hour-plus-long music video finished soon. It’s the most ambitious video project I’ve ever done and I really like how it’s turned out, and I just have these fairly small sections where it’s just a black screen, waiting for some coffee to be ground.
Also I don’t remember where I’ve mentioned it, but everyone who contributes footage gets a download code for the album and a credits screen on the full video.
To reiterate on the tech specs: The final video will be at 4K resolution, 24 FPS. Really whatever footage can come from a reasonably-modern cellphone or DSLR or whatever is fine, but ideally the footage would be 4K resolution, and recorded at a higher framerate as well (30 or even 60 FPS) which gives me more flexibility in adjusting the timing. That said, given the choice between resolution and framerate, go with resolution. And please, please record the video in a horizontal/landscape aspect. Some of the footage I received has been vertical/portrait and I’ve managed to use it but it isn’t ideal.
Anyway. I’m really excited to finish this so that I can share the whole thing with everyone!
