I do this all the time. I Personally worry about the quality of the recording first & THEN I put it to video. Your music SHOULD come first IMO. I record on a TASCAM DP24 at home. So I can take my jolly sweet time. Even when I cut tracks in the studio, I don't necessarily want to worry about filming on STUDIO time. I'm there to cut a track, or at least a vocal. If you MUST have the camera there, just let it run if you restart your track if you make a mistake. Don't mess with the camera. You can edit later. I think you should let cameras run, so you get the studio shots you want.
Once my track is done, I will worry about VIDEO. I go back & video shots of me playing guitar, or piano, or singing. I sing or play exactly as I do on the final track with all the nuances as best I can. play the track through my computer, sometimes connected to a Blue tooth speaker, sometimes not. Now I've got 2 camera angles, because my iPhone is one angle & my SONY AX53 is another...( I would suggest you run 2 ways to capture video for diversity. Use your phone too) So I'll sing to the track, play guitar, or piano...I can edit later. I get plently of takes, so I can weed through it & find what I need.
The beauty of movies & videos is it is a false sense of reality. It is all smoke & mirrors...
I just posted my first video here.
Very nice of you to give such first hand advice to an unknown amateur like me! I just went to YouTube and listened to your songs, "First Love, Last Love", and, "Cry Of The Young", and you're phenomenal! I just looked at your Tascam and it's quite a piece of technology way over my head! It's amazing how you are so professional from so many angles to create your masterpiece videos! I can hardly believe what you can do with an iPhone! Also your Sony AX53 I looked up and looks like an amazing camera, and great results you've achieved with it. Besides all the huge leaps in talent to create your fine videos and recording technology, top vocals, instrumentation, all! Do you hire some vocalists to sing some of the accompanying background? I have a Zoom Q8. I'll have to change batteries at one point as a battery when recording audio and video runs down in about an hour. I have an extra battery, so at least I can record most of the time. Studio time is $50 an hour. The engineer said it was okay to run my camera. I need to feel "ready" and some set-backs but will schedule soon. I look forward to listening to more of your songs, from a troubadour extraordinaire!
