The story is:
I fell in love with Hitfilm Express 2017, when I was looking for a program to do video-clips for my new music-album.
(As a composer/producer the music/the songs is/are the most important to me, but without videos nowadays noone seems to listen... )
Already had Vegas Movie Studio, but it never clicked here - maybe the FX and GUI were not for my taste enough or my ideas/skills simply weren't good enough back then. Never found a real workflow.
And so I started using Hitfilm last summer as a noob (the learning curve began and still is ongoing) being still one furthermore.
Now I want to show you the vids that I have done for the "New Album" with german languaged popsongs (if u don't mind my partly naive usage of VFX ).
This is the first of the last three video clips: "Sicher (safe)" (german language -> with english subs):
Well, about all the 1st world problems, too many monitors and ignorance... (no laser sword fx were involved)
And another one: "Gott-Ersatz (god replacement)" (german language -> with english subs):
This time a sort of love song video-clip with some thoughts about meaning, religion and absence.
Newest video here, named "Service" (german language -> with english subs):
"what does the term "Service" mean? Some reflections put in the corset of a short pretentious hybrid form without beats"
Next video here, named "Zahl" (Number) (english subs):
"Counts / numbers rule everything nowadays in the web of things - don't give up, some of them will be your children, but u can lose 'em"
6t "New Album" MusicVideoClip up: "Ausflug" (trip)
-> Rockmusic with some weird drawings as aliases on their journey
5th "New Album" MusicVideoClip up: "Großes Gebäude" (big building)
-> this time a short sort of symphonic strings driven poem-pop track | english subbed
4th "New Album" MusicVideoClip up: "Summer"
(no special tricks here, just lots of blends, stills, vid-parts and footage stuff - so nothing for the cracks!).
Electro-Pop-Music .. only concepted to celebrate summer...
3rd "New Album" MusicVideoClip up:
Frustrated Ego-Larmoyance with strength. CrazyTalk helped out to make the guy imported from MakeHuman speak a little bit. Experienced Animators can ignore this. Has english subs.
2nd "New Album" MusicVideoClip is here:
This is sort of a dada whacko kangaroo Electro-Pop tune. Has english subs.
The first is a "Schlager" musically (so not to everone's cup of tea, I know) and to be honest I have also used Da Vinci Resolve for the grading plus Z-GameEditor (part of FL Studio) for some background animations.
But: In the end all was done in Hitfilm - with some composite shot animations on some layers + footage. I think for the grading now Hitfilm was enough via keyframing (if I had known this before and had used the colour wheel)
Thanks to all the great helpers here - would have given up otherwise!!
Maybe some of you can enjoy the clips or have some remarks for me.
(only some stills with animations, german language, sorry
