ALAN KELLNER: DRUM REEL
Client: Alan Kellner
Alan Kellner is an independent musician with years experience playing for local establishments and private productions. Recently Kellner has positioned himself to record and play music as part of larger traveling performing acts and needed to formalize a reel promo of himself performing in studio along some known tracks. Alan reached out to our creative team and we planned and executed this in studio shoot showcasing both his personal instrument kit as well as some of the varying styles he’s comfortable playing as a musician. This demo piece is currently being used by his agent for promotional purposes.
Based on our clients needs we knew we wanted an intimate studio setting where we could control every aspect of the production from lighting, to audio mix and camera. We used our network of creative connections to find the perfect location to film this promotional piece for our client and deliver quality audio to match with the visuals we filmed.
Once on site, we setup our lighting and camera positions to best highlight Alan and his skills behind the drum. With a 4k Master and several insert cameras we guaranteed enough coverage through every performance to deliver a dynamic and fun edit that flowed well with each arrangement of music we included in the edit.
Color grading, syncing and editing all were important factors as we pieced together this multi-layered multi-camera shoot. Through years of experience and refined workflow we were able to deliver for our client a tight and dynamic video perfectly suited for his promotional needs.
