A Note about the filming of this Video...
"Save Me (From Myself)" was filmed over the course of one day (about 7 hours) in a warehouse in Hollywood literally a stones throw away from the Capitol Records Building. Everything you see in the video was done "In Camera"... there was no Post Production FX added whatsoever. All of the Psychedelic Lighting Effects were performed "Live" by Sherry Lee and Blues Williams while we filmed the band playing back to their tune.
Sherry used an "old school" Overhead Projector and a couple of clock faces filled with water, mineral oil and candy dyes to achieve the liquid light/psychedelic/Fillmore Era effects. Blues used an Opaque Projector with an assortment of transparencies that we designed a few days before the shoot. A Video Projector and a couple of strobes that the band brought were also used, but other than that there were no other lights.
We filmed the band playing together and then separately to get all of the shots. Moana Santana and Julie Faravel were filmed last, Go-Go Dancing in front of The Lords of Altamont's Tour Film.
Between each take we had to clean the clock faces and change out the oils as they would get unusable pretty fast. About halfway through the shoot, Sherry tried to clean inside the Overhead Projector and ended up cracking the Lens. If you pay attention to the wall behind the band you can see that crack every once in a while.
The Gretsch Guitars that Shawn and John use in the video were borrowed from True Tone Music in Santa Monica, CA. Just to be on the safe side, the fellas lined the back of the guitars with felt so as not to scratch them up.
We spent about $150 on making this video - $75 for the Overhead Projector (found on Craigslist) and another $75 for all of the Oils and whatnot.
We filmed the video on our Panasonic HVX-200a P2 Camcorder w/ SG Blade 35mm Lens Adapter (Canon lens). We edited the video in Avid Media Composer.
Pretty basic but it turned out pretty cool.
