We recently shot and color graded the latest music video for the legendary nu metal band KORN, working with Director and VFX guru Giovanni Bucci, record label Prospct Park, producer Christopher Salzgeber, and production company Draw Pictures.
It was an intense full-day production in which we had to work extremely quickly to get the coverage needed in a single day. Then we did a series of macro and pickup shots in the following week for cutaways.
We wanted a constant sense of motion in the camera work to complement the frenetic, chaotic tone of the video — with a combination of handheld, jib, and fast-moving slider runs.
As the internal and physical collapse occurs in the storyline, the camera work gets rougher and deteriorates along with our lead character.
Color grading brought rich vibrant reds out while pushing the shadows cooler for contrast and a greater sense of depth. A lot of mood can be created with color tones; we apply a deep understanding of color theory to each project to enhance the story and increase the visual impact.
