Digital Cine Cameras Permeate the Production World

pro_hdcameras_randall-dark-with-jvcs-hmq10-camera_4k-shooting_012-5What a difference a couple of years can make on the pro camera scene.

“Jesse James” Music Video Brings to Life the Old West

 

web_pro_musicvideoproduction_thadd-directing-train-sequence-2Filmmaker Thadd Turner has a special affinity for the Old West, having acted in, written, directed and/or produced dozens of films and videos with a Western theme. So it was a dream come true when Clay Walker, a platinum-selling country artist for the Asylum-Curb record label, recorded the album She Won’t Be Lonely Long. Released last month, the album includes the song “Jesse James,” about a good man who fantasizes about being a bad boy in the Old West — and when Walker and his record company decided to produce the music video, Turner was a natural choice to write and direct the project.
