I pump it out like an artery
Hello all. I haven’t posted in a minute but I thought I’d share a project I’ve been trying to get off the ground for a while and the problems I’ve had so far.
I have been planning a music video for an amount fo time I am too ashamed to disclose but let’s just say it shouldn’t have taken me that long.
Today was the first of two shoot days and It did not go well. The park I had checked out weeks prior was now a victim of a horrendous crime – mudding. The ground was torn apart and mud was everywhere I planned to shoot. The flat areas I had originally planned for walking were unusable, and that was supposed to be the bulk of the video. When I got there I really had to improvise to be able to film anything. So far the footage doesn’t look too bad but I definitely think I could have done better. On top of that I got a major headache mid shoot that I just had to muscle through.
I spoke to the 3 artists twice about the song and then I planned from home. I got hold of the lyrics and wrote down what I saw when I listened to the song a total of 348 times. Like I said above, it took me way to long to plan this and I think part of it was Rona making it difficult to focus on any projects. I had this weird feeling in me that I wouldn’t finish but it all went a way when filming started.
Really I think this showed me what steps to take in order to plan a video better, and the simple answer is often the right one. I may have gotten ahead of myself when planning this but let’s see how it goes.
“I pump it out like an artery” is a lyric from the song that I brought up during our meeting. I assumed it meant that rapping to him was like his lifeblood, and it was a part of him.
