Short Film from my Class

Dantes – Oh Ma Chérie (Song)

This 3mn25s Video clip has been shot during my Filmmaking class, in collaboration with the students who signed up for the 2012 Spring term.

By Franc Péret

Ths is the third video we had done during that term as we also shot “5 senses +1″ and “Size matters” (you can view by clicking on their name).

Once more, we did it simple as a very low budget was involved in this shooting.

Dantes, the French singer who is singing in Chinese, composed and wrote the lyrics.
We specially had done this simple video to promote this song on the French market.

Final (live) Sound recording was done at the end of the video with the inboard microphone of the AF103.
