    This year's speed and lip sync exercise from CINE 425: Making Music Video. This is an exercise to learn how to achieve lip sync at various frame rates to give you the slow motion lip sync and the fast motion lip sync (similar to the 1990s Hype Williams videos with Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliot). This videos features several students and the instructor, me (Andre´ Sirois) as the "talent," performing a short big from Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You." Please note that if the lips are off, well, it's because the instructor didn't practice much (note that for slow motion, you have to get your talent on board to perform the song super fast and to practice). Some of the students here are: David Chiang, Max Anderson, Max Rudolph, Jonas Parker, Brennan Duffy, Cassidy Garcia, and Scythe Klein. Ashlee Olsen and Brad Burke on camera, directed by Max Rudolph, and Juan Davalos on playback. Numerous students helped with lighting. Pretty fun class for sure. This year we added using a white backdrop. This was okay, but we didn't have enough light to really blow it out so it took some work in color correction (mainly blowing out the highlights and bringing down the mids/shadows, as well as some desaturation and color balance). For Slow motion: The challenge is to be able to shoot a video at a higher framerate (60fps, 1/125 shutter to maintain 180 degree shutter rule) and then conform to a 24p timeline in post, which means performing the song at +250% (to figure out how much you need to change the song speed you divide your shooting framerate by your timeline frame rate and then shift the decimal over two numbers; thus 60/24=2.5, so 250%). When you conform the framerate it slows down the footage 40% and you should have perfect sync. You also need to add frame blending so that the slow motion doesn't skip frames. I want to note that if your timeline is 30p, it's not quite as tough. It's a challenge, though, to perform a song at +250%, and some genres are easier than others (for instance, rapping at +250% is tough). Thus, the greatest challenge is getting your talent on board to do this. This will give you a similar aesthetic to the Coldplay "The Scientist" video (although this was also shot in reverse, so Chris Martin had the learn the lyrics at +250% and backwards): youtube.com/watch?v=RB-RcX5DS5A&feature=kp Shooting for fast motion is much easier. In this video we shot at 24fps, 1/50 and our timeline was 24p. The song was performed at 50%, so there is a lot more room to embellish (which I probably did too much of). When you get into post just speed the video up by +200% and you should be in sync, and what you get is this Hype Williams-esqu bugged out style like in this Busta Rhymes "Gimme Some More" video: youtube.com/watch?v=eHHT7dTmw8U&feature=kp Take this course to learn more production tips and tricks for music video! Remember, it's up to the talent to practice the song at these speeds to sell it.

              I built a studio in my garage to give my video projects a nice, clean, professional look. I just took a few test shots with my iPhone to make sure my lighting was placed correctly, but I'll be posting some video projects I shoot in there pretty soon. Materials: (4) 8' 2x4's (4) 4'x8' textureless hard ply boards (4) cans of flat white interior latex paint Caulk and joint compound to make the joints between plies and the ground smooth and seemless. (2) 500w studio lights in soft boxes (15) Flood light cans (15) 3000 Kelvin 100w light bulbs Shot completely on my iPhone 4S using and Olloclip and the iMotion HD app.
