BTS of Mark Tarmonea's music video
We made a music video for my pal Mark Tarmonea in our studio. For lighting the background and models I used the 4ft / 4bank DIY KinoFlo's that I've built especially for this purpose - and they were great! Editing was done by Michael Ronge and Color Grading by me. Now Im doing some beauty retouching using a combination of Mocha AE, Beauty Box Video Plugin and Box Blur in After Effects.
I'm glad I found Beauty Box for Video from digitalanarchy. On it's own it's really a great plugin and worth the money. They even have an OFX version for DaVinci Resolve, Scratch, etc. Though you have to be careful to not overdo it or your models will look like plastic dolls. On this particular music video the producer wanted more of a porcelain look on the model.
Read the description of my Youtube clip - there are links to Mary Poplin's great webinars on how to use Mocha AE/Pro for motion beauty retouching!
Here are a couple of snapshots I took with my phone from our shoot:
