A video featuring a bearded guy and me wearing no pants...

So here's another video for this project which I produce, called Berndsen.

The song is called Monster Forest



For those interested in the music production side of it, we have drums programmed in Reaper, some fretless bass action by a friend, a bit of TR-808 percussion, then synth basslines courtesy of Jupiter-6, and a lot of other synthy goodness on the track like MS20, SH-101, EmulatorII, Teisco SX-400 and Fender Rhodes. A big part of it goes through an RE-201. Even the fretless bass made a round through the Space Echo, with all the settings on dry, just to get that 80's tape bass sound. To top it off, another friend played a guitar solo which I layered with some of my backing vocals, plus some bird sounds recorded in a Swedish forest.

Videowise, this was a $0 budget project, using all borrowed equipment. For a whole weekend, this fancy RED camera was not in use for a film project my friend was shooting, so we got to mess around with its awesome high frame rate modes. It took a while to edit, but it all clicked together in the end.

And yes, I am that other guy, wearing no pants. :headbang:
Monkey business since 2007!

Looks and sounds great. God, the quality off that RED is unreal, compared to the better DSLRs. Nice getting to use that bad-boy for free!

Gotta be honest, I clicked 'play' just to see you without pants. :shock:

Other than that slightly embarrassing fact - kick a*s job! The video is well shot and edited, and the music got my head bobbin!

:lol:
