Terry Barber: Auditions

Shot and Edited by Enlighten Video

Terry Barber is an international Countertenor that I've worked with before on his Christmas Concert over the break. Now he's back to film a few singles to release on his Youtube channel. The challenge we had was figuring out how to get very different looks out of the same setup. Part of that work was done through costuming, but another half of it was done with the lighting and the edit.

In Music of the Night we used much more dramatic lighting combined with some added fog effects in post to create a much more serious mood for the piece. For You'll Be Back we opted for more "normal" lighting with less dramatic shadows to bring a warmer feeling to the set. I also had to use a wider aspect ratio to fit all three takes in the same frame, which you can see below in my VFX Breakdown.
