I'd like some feedback on a music video I directed. Cinematography/lighting, editing, anything!
Overall it´s a good videoclip, you got some great shots with really nice cinematography. As a director decisions i have a couple of questions: 1.- Why the dolls? like, you chose to present them in the beginning but you didn´t developed anything else through the video and at the end you close with the male doll. 2.- Why only one performance setup? Why only in medium shot? You could (should??) played a little more, maybe some full shots (i didn´t saw any instrument beside the hanging guitar)... And as a comment, be extra careful with the lip-sync the shot at 0:46 it´s way out of sync. Technically speaking it´s really cool (aside from the running part at 2:41, that´s not a good choice using DSLR). As a personal comment, the singer looks a lot like the guy from Billy on the Street and i fucking hate him D: ... Keep on working bro!

The camera work is probably the best thing about the video. Sorry I really think the song sucked and the acting was really bad. I felt so creeped out by the guy with the eyeliner and his odd looks to camera (how the fuck do you have so many views though!). As there's a lot of footage of this chap, you could have played around with a vignette or maybe a cool little lens baby to throw focus and make it a bit more interesting as the shots of him/her do become a bit tedious. I liked the outdoor shots and the lighting was really nice with all the autumnal browns of the leaves and trees which also matched the brickwork of the building which I liked. I think when making a music video with a narrative though, you really need to be clearer as to what is going on, I had no idea what the dolls related to or what the second couple were doing. Overall though, good job.
What sort of set up do you use?
