What's up hypebeast,

I'll try to keep this short and sweet.  I'm graduating college this weekend, looking for video related work, but I need to expand my portfolio.  I've been shooting/editing videos for 7+ years, but almost all of my videos are of skiing and snowboarding.  I have some random lifestyle ones as well, and an educational documentary.

Since I love music, I would love to try making a music video.  But since I have no experience with that type of video, I'm willing to do it free of charge.  I'll drive anywhere in NY state, or anywhere fairly close, for free.  No gas money or anything required.  Why?  Because I can't guarantee a perfect video.  This will be experience for me and for you.

I should be shooting with a Canon t4i by the time this goes into action, and I edit with Adobe Premiere Pro.

If you'd be interested in this opportunity, please send your song you'd like to have made into a video to:
bsweet@mail.niagara.edu

In the subject line, please put: Music Video

I will be choosing a person who I think has the chance to become something big, but since I can't guarantee I'll get a lot of people e-mailing me, you should test your chances anyway.

Final thing: please don't post songs here, or in my hypbeast inbox.  I actually rarely log into hypebeast, but I always check my e-mail.

Thanks,
Ben

You should be able to do a pretty good job. Youre probably used to lots of beat cuts and movements from ski videos that can easily adapt to music videos. Even if you dont have a lot of effects you can make it look great with getting lots of cuts lined up on those beat hits. PM me if you need some help with workflow or anything

5d is for people who suck, the camera compensates for that.  but if you understand how to use cameras to their every advantage like an actual skilled director or cinematographer should than you can pretty much use anything.
best camera i would say for under 1500, can be anything between a t4i to 60d to 7d

its more so the lens than the camera, anything that shoots in 1920 x 1080p is pretty much good for music video. but lenses that have silent and smooth AF and are good in low light settings with minimal motion blur are what makes the quality of music video. yes if you shoot with a RED or a 5D Mark III you will generally get more crisper pictures but you can get that with almost any camera if you just know your stuff.

^^ plus most people dont own REDs or any cinema cameras at that, they just get good enough to the point where they gain access to renting one for cheaper than someone who isnt experienced would.

lmao film school kids dont evvvvvverrrr learn how to shoot music videos. thats why a majority of them come out trash, it dosent matter what camera you use to film anything, but if your trying to work with people they are gonna want it to look like it was shot on film and the 5d does that better than anything else unless ur rich to shoot music videos on film.

Op could at least show us his work. The 5d is bit of bread, but I think it boils down to editing etc. 

Don't badmind me.
