NCT Dream ‘Candle Light’ official video
This is the "Candle Light" music video of Korean idol group NCT Dream.
The director and I were the first to work on each other. At the first meeting, the director said that he was impressed that I shoted different visuals for each piece, and he wanted to work with me once.
The concept of this music video is Cinema Crew in the early and mid 1900s. In the music video, Artists are making their own movies.
I also wanted to shot this music video in a way similar to the camera technique of the early and mid 1900s.
The film at that time does not show a brilliant camera walking like the current movie. At that time the grip equipment was just Dolly and Crane.
However, each angle of the camera was accurate and sophisticated, and camera walking was also focused on expressing the necessary emotions.
I also tried to do that, and I wanted the cuts of this music video to look like a painting.
Lens filters followed the same pattern at the time, in which cinematographer preferred using stockings as soft filters, Because there are not many soft filters like now.
In this work I used stockings in scenes of movies taken by Artists.
In fact, sometimes I still use stockings as filters in other works.
At that time, there was no HMI Lighting.
There was only Tungsten lighting.
I also only use Tungsten lighting. Tungsten light is less efficient than HMI, but light quality is more soft.
Although these various shooting and lighting techniques is no glamour or coloful like the typical Korean idol music video, I had a belief that classical aesthetics unlike them could be expressed.
