Doesn't Matter Anyway
Australia's own "Skarlett" - L to R Lachlan Barker, Sam Weaver, Arran Barker, Jack Weaver
This project was a heap of fun to work on, I have to admit its probably the most fun I have had on a video project yet, plus I love the genre of music so it was so easy to listen to it multiple times while getting the lip sync right during edits.
I opted to shoot this one entirely with Canon DSLR's again. I have been getting a lot of practice in with the Canon 5D MK3 since I got it earlier this year so it was an obvious choice for me as my primary camera, but I still love the DOF I get out my 7D as well so it was assigned to the B camera team with the Canon 5D MK2 that was brought along by my friend Terry Finocchiaro from Sienna Productions who generously volunteered his services just for the fun of working on the project with us.
Only the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 and Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 were used. These two lenses providing more than enough variable focal length and DOF for the look we were after.
Got to say that I LOVED the fact that we did this all in the one location. A private back yard in the suburb of Bayview ( Darwin, Australia ), which made for easy set-up and pull-down on the two days of filming.

Sam Weaver, the lead singer commented that Doesn't Matter Anyway was created purely out of the blue while the band were jamming. It was intended purely as a straight forward and fun song and the idea of the video should reflect that and capture an energetic party feel . Well I think we hit that mark pretty well with this video.
Since Doesn't Matter Anyway was released on line the web versions have seen a steady view count increase that suggests it is being spread by a lot more people than the bands traditional following. At the time of writing this blog entry the YouTube version of this video stands at just over 7K views and has been receiving around 1K unique hits per day on average, all without saturation of marketing . . . yet.
Nowadays whenever we do any sort of production work, whether it be video or stills I usually try to bring a couple of extra cameras along to capture the work in progress; that's your hint to keep an eye out for the behind the scenes video being released soon for an interesting little look at how we filmed the takes for this music video.
