Yesterday evening, I was over at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow filming my friend, Tyler, perform to a packed audience.
Widely accepted as one of the best venues small venues in the UK, King Tut’s had a brilliant energy, an awesome light system and a lively crowd.
All of this played perfectly into Tyler’s set and I’m delighted to have played a part in capturing it.
As I was editing the footage today though, I noticed it was pretty shaky.
I was disappointed as I had made a real effort to keep it smooth and feared that it would render it unusable.
Fortunately though, through a simple stabilization plugin through final cut pro – it fixed it completely.
I was totally blown away.
Just as I was about to export the clip, I thought to myself…
“hmm, how about adding a little colour?”
I played around the hues, the brightness and the exposure levels and it totally changed the vibe.
The video went from being super bright and boyant to being bluesy and dreamy.
He was impressed with how it came out, but another snag was that I didn’t record directly from the mixing board so the sound from the audience was a tad too much.
We agreed that the best thing would be to hold off releasing it and cut it together with other promo clips.
Keep your eyes peeled!
