This year ARTTEC students have produced 2 music videos for Interscope recording artist Colette Carr! Over Winter Break, we took a group of students to Paramount Ranch to shoot a video for Colette’s single, “Why are you Leaving?” This video was a first for many of the students and it was a great opportunity for them to get some hands on experience. Over the course of the 2 day shoot, the students learned basic skills ranging from setting up a track-dolly to pulling focus on a RED camera.
In May, our students got a second opportunity to work with Colette Carr for the single, “Hearsay”, at our soundstage near downtown San Jose. The video features an elaborate set and a “spinning wheel of death” that our students and mentors built from scratch. This video gave our students a great opportunity to understand how set construction and force-perspective is done to give the illusion and depth needed for this shoot.
