DSLR Video – The Royal Hounds “I’m In Love With a Zombie”

UPDATED WITH BETTER AUDIO
I’ve been radically changing up my videos. I ditched the tripod in favor of a video monopod. Now I’m moving around, which makes the videos much more interesting. Now that I’ve got the audio and video under control I’ve jumped into video editing, whick makes the whole video an actual, like, video, instead of just video clips.
There are some other videos in the can that are better than this one (which has a couple of places where my framing wasn’t as good as I would have liked). I’m putting this one out first because it’s the title track to the band’s new album. The CD release parties are in Knoxville on May 23rd at Preservation Pub and May 25th at Wild Wings Cafe. Check ’em out.
P.S. One of the challenges with the monopod is that you can go high and you can go low, but you have to use the pan/tilt head to compensate for the change. So if you start low, the camera is tilted up. As you life the monopod vertically you have to push the tiltbar up at just the right rate to level the camera. Otherwise you wind up pointing at the floor or ceiling until you get the camera levelled.
