When I was working at PBP this summer, Leigh came down for a week to work on his segment. While he was around, he gave a tattoo to PBP's Cody Carter and one of Johnny D's stepsons. I filmed it and Tyler Hamlet also directed a short interview with Leigh about his tattooing.
I'm definitely stoked with how it turned out. I wish the interview shots were a little brighter, but we were stretched for light and I was just the B camera. Tyler shot a straight on angle, but I wanted this piece to be entirely my own shots.
Thanks! I agree, that tattoo was real sick. I had actually been envisioning a tattoo incorporating a film strip, a camera, and mountains for a really long time but hadn't worked up the courage to actually follow through with it, so I was a little disappointed that Cody had a similar tattoo idea ready to go soon as Leigh got there. back to the drawing board i guess
You need to crank up the audio in some of the interview shots and balance the non-interview audio too. I turned up my speakers to hear the talking then the music came on and you turned it up and it was way too loud.
Unfortunately the audio was cranked all the way. We were using a Tascam recorder but that was before I had one and nobody really knew how to use it, so the levels definitely weren't high enough. Also I think I made the retarded mistake of moving the mic when I moved my camera, because about half of the interview was way lower than the other.
When did you notice that the most? I felt like the interview audio and the first song were mixed much better than with the second. Mixing audio is definitely still a weakness of mine. The music was always at standard reference level, but unfortunately the interview audio couldn't even reach reference level most of the time.
