Company Man

The standalone video for “Company Man” by Tony Silipigno, from the PB Cantina Oct 16 show, is live.  Whenever I make a full convert video, I always take a few songs and make standalone videos for them.  Some people see a running time of 30 min or an hour, and just say “nope!”  So, a single song can sometimes be more appealing.

PB Cantina Open Mic

I’d had my new GH5 for a few days, so I was itching to go shoot something.  My friends Pete, Tony, Dan, and Derek we playing the Open Mic night at PB Cantina, so I headed down there.  I was just intending to try a few settings, see how the camera handled the stage lights, etc.

Well, I ended up recording most of the night.  Then, I found out the sound guy, Jeremy, records all the Open Mic nights.  So, he gave the tracks to Dan Bonn, who mixed and mastered them. Dan gave the mixes to me, and now I have pristine audio to go with my camera “test”.

EDIT: I should add, this is the first video I edited in DaVinci Resolve (which I like a lot), and also the first video I did color grading on.  I think it looks great for a first try.

So, here’s the video:
