Vobler Music Video

The first single and music video of Croatian rock band VOBLER, titled "Pomiri se s tim", directed and produced by Bobby B. Grubic. Was released today @ the video link party hosted @ Default Club, Sisak, Croatia and Azzurra Building in Los Angeles.

"The whole video was shot in 12 hours and it was my test for Canon 5D. I have to say I was and still am very impressed with Canon 5D Mark II and I will likely use it in my future projects" said BobbyG. "All footage was shot at 1080p30. We used the following lenses: ef 16-35 f2.8 L USM mkII , ef 50mm macro f2.5 i ef 70-200 f2.8 L USM. My first AD and DP was Marin Vidovic ... great photographer. Editing and all of the post (color correcting, lights and birds) were done in SONY VEGAS PRO 9. The project was edited and mastered in HDV 720p25 format. The main reason for that was, as this was low budget / no budget production and put together on the fly while I was traveling to Europe, I did not have all of the equipment I wanted / needed for this project, so most of the shots were still shoots. I moved / animated my camera and scenes in post. Also, editing the project in lower resolution than originally shot, gave me the ability to re-frame the scenes and make the whole thing more visually pleasing." See this music video at this link.
