So, after something like seven months, I’ve finally finished the Measure of a Man music video.  I’m fairly happy with it, it’s abit rough around the edges in places, but that’s what happens when you don’t have a budget ;0) Thanks to Tom and Pete for being my willing guinea pigs.

So as mentioned, Tom and Pete came over on saturday to film the last few shots for the music video.

We spent a while attaching the makeup before filming the guys against green screen.

I’m uploading the completed vid to YouTube and will post it once it’s available.

Tom and Pete came over this saturday and filmed the last few bits of the Measure of a Man music video.  I’m just putting the finishing touches to the edit then I guess I’ll post it on You Tube or something.

In the meantime, here’s a pic of them sitting on the sofa in their robot makeup with a new friend.

Here’s the second piece of robot makeup.  The red LEDs flash.  I’ll let Tom and Pete decide who’s getting which one ;0)

Here’s a cast of the robot makeup with an LED in place. I might add one or two others.

Here’s the second piece of makeup for the Measure of a Man music video.

The plan is to have a bunch of wires and flashing LEDs hanging out the eye socket.

I’m finishing off the robot makeup at the moment as we’ll be shooting the final parts of the Measure of a Man music video this coming saturday, so I need to hurry up!

I’m making plaster molds of the sculpture which’ll then be used to cast up gelatin appliances. I’ll be wiring up some LEDs which’ll be hanging out the makeup, flashing away.

So here’s a sequence for the the Measure of a Man Music Video which I’ve just completed.  That’s the last of the FX shots except for the robot make-up

I’m fairly happy with it, considering it’s been done with a budget of £0 ;0)

Just been doing quick test of my chroma key setup. This is very rough (the lights are in the way!), but it’s just to check it all works ahead of shooting the final scenes for the Measure of a Man Music Video

I’ll be compositing shots of the guys in their robot makeup

So here’s the finished cast of Tom’s face.  I’ve now started sculpting some makeup over it to make him look like a robot.

The idea is that there’ll be wires showing through the torn sections.  I’ve embedded some in the sculpture itself as well as some bits and pieces from old sets of earphones, there’ll also be some broken wires hanging free from the damaged sections.

I’ve also bought some LEDs which will be wired into the finished piece.  There’ll be some blue ones which will will be embedded in the torn sections to give them a blue glow.  There’ll also be some hanging out of the makeup on the ends of wires.

The makeup’s going to be cast in gelatin in the same manner as the Terminator makeup I’m also currently working on.  I want to get a kind of a plastic look to the flesh though, making it look like they’re a synthetic robot rather than some kind of cyborg – I don’t want them to look like the terminator hence the blue LEDs.
