Deathbyrd: Behind the scenes Photos
a Wangle Creative production
(photos by Gene Fojtik)
A week ago I met Sam and Bella of Deathbyrd. Today, we’ve completed a 3 song shoot, an interview, and released their first acoustic music video. Â Not only are they talented and easy to direct, they are so comfortable in their own skins and music. Hey it’s straight from the heart, right?
Tech stuff: The shoot was done with minimal equipment (Two Kinos and a HVX200 thanks to David Moravec of EZ3 Media). Â Location was Sam’s apartment but I still wanted it to look like it was shot in some swanky cafe. Â The door by the window really limited the camera angles on Sam and the sun was difficult to control through the curtains but I’m happy with the image quality in general.
In terms of sound, we had one mic that recorded them live and had them sing along with the playback hero track for the cut away shots.
This is what the location looked like before/after the lighting setup.

Behind the scenes
for Schawk’s commercial shoot was the Pixel Brother’s crew including David Moravec (DP) who was kind enough to have me as the behind the scenes photographer. Â I wanted to capture some interesting moments when the same people are stuck on the same set for days. Â I won’t go into all the details because I don’t know what I am allowed or not allowed to say. Overall it was an amazing experience especially working with the William, the creative director and Matt, the marketing manager, and all the good folks at Pixel Bros and Schawk.
