My Beautiful Idol - Take Away Show

Hey guys,

Just wanted to share a video that we did the other day.

This is Austin Black from the band Domestic Sleepless performing "My Beautiful Idol" from their upcoming record "Night". 

This video was fun because a big part of the reason it was made is because we had just gotten a new camera (canon 7d) and wanted to test out it's low-light capabilities. So we put my friend Austin (who just happens to be incredibly musically gifted and has an awesome band called Domestic Sleepless) in a room with one very dim light, and had him perform one of his new songs. We're pretty proud of the result. We shot it from the same angle three times, and used audio from one take. He played to a click track so all of the takes were able to sync but only sorta. This creates a jarring and unsettling effect, that we thought kind of captures the feel of the song.
