3 more fx shots to do then I'm on to color correction/grading. Possibly some editing tweaks, and the "Cave Wall" video will finally be done! I don't want to giv...e too much away, but here's a little teaser clip. #edgesofseven #cavewall #Eo7Vancouver #musicvideo #doityourself #aftereffects #myvision #motiontracking #AdobePremiere
New website is coming soon! Started on it last night after doing more video work, and it should come along quickly as wordpress is a lot easier for me to work with that old fashioned html! Not much there at the moment except some placeholder stuff, but I'll be adding to it daily. As always, www.edgesofseven.com
65 visual effects shots in the upcoming "Cave Wall" video. This is seriously keeping me busy!
I've been spending so much time over the past few weeks working on the video, that I've barely had time to do anything musical. Really missing it, so many new tunes on the go for the new Eo7 album happening later this year! Looking forward to taking her back into the studio to make the magic happen! Steve, Swash, Carmello and myself will be coming your way in 2018!

Thanks to my awesome friend Jenny Kirby (Borg Queen Music https://www.facebook.com/borgqueenmusic/) for not only providing the "eye" shots for the video, but for doing my makeup as I shoot my singing footage tonight! #CaveWall #Eo7Vancouver #BorgQueenMusic #finalvideoshoot #makeuponpoint
One of my best friends, Jenny, aka Borg Queen, preparing to lend her peepers to the final bits of footage being shot today for the Cave Wall video!
Seeing as we're getting closer to the release of the "Cave Wall" video, I figured I'd post a clip for you guys. No audio, but a little taste of the kind of visuals you can expect. #edgesofseven #Eo7Vancouver #musicvideo #doityourself #cavewall #myvision
A little collage of screenshots from the work I've been doing on the "Cave Wall" music video. Getting very close now! Almost done all the green screen keying, then have the remaining vfx to do, then a little 3D work. After that's all done it's basically color correction, then release! #Eo7Vancouver #edgesofseven #musicvideo #doityourself #myvision #CaveWall
Playing around with some 3D logo goodness in Element 3D, awesome plugin for After Effects. Most likely gonna be a "bumper" before future Eo7 videos, basically a little intro.
Another clip from the upcoming "Cave Wall" video.
"Outside, of no regard"
is the lyric that this clip accompanies. I wanted the character to be looking out a window, but seeing something sort of creepy/surreal. A little lens flare on the candelabra adds a nice touch, though I'm being careful not to go full on "JJ Abrams" with lens flare. All the motion tracking is now done, the green screen is almost done, and as you can see with this clip, I'm already into putting together the visual fx. Again, no audio with this clip...we'll save that for when the video debuts

Another little clip I've been working on for the "Cave Wall" video. The green screen work is a bit rough, but I had to do a lot of masking in this shot. Trying to figure out how to make the background more interesting, so I put some ink bleeds in the windows. Each member will have a different background for each shot they're in, I want to keep the visuals as enticing as I can. The goal is still to have this done by around Christmas, so I still have a lot of work to do. I wanted to share the progress though.

This is what my life has consisted of recently, masking green screen footage of #edgesofseven drummer Michael Zelonis. It's a tedious process, but I thought I'd have a little fun with it. This clip was masking out a tracking marker behind his melon. #AfterEffects #musicvideo #doityourself #greenscreen #Eo7Vancouver
