Bandana Splits Music Video

Last Monday Stephanie Testa DPed on the set of The Bandana Splits music video for their upcoming single. It was a marathon video shoot, from 3pm to 6am!

The location couldn’t have been any better, taking place at the now famed Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain. Now that we finally have something in common with James Franco, I can die a happy woman.

To get the perfect low light look, Stephanie did a ton of research beforehand to select the absolute best lenses for the shoot. We knew that we’d be using a mixture of available lighting, string lights and small spots. The lenses she ended up using were the Canon 14mm f/2.8 (widest rectilinear lens out there), 20mm f/2.8 (our new lens!), 50mm f/1.2, 85mm f/1.2, and 135mm f/2.0. To top it off, she shot many of the shots using a Glidecam track, so the footage really has a great subtle smooth movement.

But before we delay any longer, we want to give a shout out to our friend Bob Coen at Transformers Films (just downstairs!) for getting us in touch with Thomas “Tim” Harris, inventor of the “Hand Held Remote Camera Positioner” – think steadicam meets crane. Harris’ device is currently in patent pending, and we’re really lucky to say the Bandana Splits music video shoot last week was its debut on a full set! Here’s a quick demo video of the crane in action:

So huge thanks to Tim for operating his crane into the wee hours of the morning, and an additional thanks goes to Bob for letting us borrow his follow focus and rig!

So, with production wrapped up, we’re currently in post with the video – but we’ll be posting a copy of the finished video as soon as it’s done!

Not production related, but worth posting: extras in 1940's attire still can't resist checking their iPhones.
