Campus Green – “Locust” (Explicit)

Campus Green is a collaborative music group myself and four others created in 2010. This particular collaboration is between myself, and the instrumental creator Cote Vanidestine. Here I used a Blue SnowBall USB Microphone, recording to GarageBand. The lyrics were then mixed using plugins of compression, equalization, DeEsser, pitch correction and delay, to give it a more textured and contemporary sound. The visual piece was a metaphor on the lyrics showing how were all parts of nature, writing our own path, in this case a “Locust” by the bars of a fence, bars are also lyrical measures in rap music. The video cuts through scenes to help convey lyrical points. Color corrected for brightness, vibrance and saturation, black and white effects. The video was filmed with a Canon 7D and 18-135mm lens using manual aperture, ISO, shutter speed, zoom and focus, on a fixed tripod, custom made slider bar and dolly.
