Have to figure out how to make a music video in 5 days... 7d
Aug 8, 2011

So... I've been in to amateur still photography for a little bit but I've been looking in to learning video. Worked on film stuff a bit in a crew capacity but never as a shooter. Lightening struck and I got the chance to shoot a music video this weekend...sort of a friend of a friend thing that I can't pass up. I have a very cursory knowledge of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.

I realize this all sounds ridiculous and I'm sort of set up for failure here but... it is what it is. I have zero budget for this thing but the artist has a buzz and the video could see solid exposure. I have to figure out how to direct and shoot this thing this week.

The set up is as follows:

Canon 7d with kit lens

party scene at Lake Michigan

second location a bit west capturing the skyline

they'd like to have driving shots but i'd rather avoid these.

ANY suggestions, tips, or info you all think might be helpful would be immensely appreciated.
