I did camera for most of this video, hope you like it!

**edit** this isn't the R&B video, by the way, I haven't finished it just yet!

Amazing stuff Blimpy, i'm always overawed by people who can create stuff

...not too sure about the song though, Nu-Metal with violins!! But it kinda grew on me by the end..

Blimpy, have you heard about the new Shane Meadows film, being released this week: 'Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee'?

An improvised mock-rock-umentary made in 5 days set in deejayland, apparently, with Paddy Considine as Le Donk. Here's a trailer link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-hmSRgZHc8&feature=PlayList&p=E98CC30ECBA3DA9A&index=0&playnext=1

Cool, it's like knowing a celebrity!

Now, Blimpy, even I know that's not the R&B video.

Beautiful murky underwater look. Nicely done.

@chris - it looks like a lot of fun!

@everyone else, you are too kind!

'course, if you can't hold the camera steady, or pay for more than one orange light-bulb, or stop the band from smoking on stage - or even get them to stay still for a second . . . you're bound to get results like this . . .

the singer threw up after the second take.

- which might improve the colour scheme

Don't knock it, Japanther!

I have to say that apart from the inadvisable scatting at the 3min mark, I enjoyed that.

Visually a bit too shaky for me; I imagine it wouldn't take too many consecutive plays before I complained of headache/dizziness, but then I am getting old!! But I liked the fuzziness - like sepia-tinting for the digital age.

Cheers, Blimpy.

What's this, a post to show off your cool job? Closely followed by a post with a question to remind me how much my job sucks? It's this kind of passive/aggressive behaviour that gives the 'Spill a bad name. Well that & the playground beatings of course.

(JK, looking forward to a looksie, orchestral metal sounds like a winner & can't wait for the R&B epic).

*hic*

While straining my utmost to be louche and careless - I completely forgot that what gets my goose-bumps shuffling is Electic Violins. In rock/pop ensembles.

This . . . 'thing' about EV's might have started with Jean-Luc Ponty. Can't remember the album or band.
But John Handy's extraordinary group had Michael White on the Live at Monterey album - and for me that's when the music took wing..
I do like this jagged music, and I think your reduced blurry take was bang on for this crew.
