Technicals: Shot on a Canon 7D

Editing: Adobe Premiere.

Ident Works for HipTv

HipTv is undergoing some station revamp so i've being doing some station idents for them. The brief was simple!

"Gbenga Salu, create some fresh, unique and smart idents with our station logo."

And i think i delivered that.*big grin* Unfortunately, i can't post videos of the works yet, 'cos the client is gonna be launching the animations on their station next month. But once its launched, trust that i will make u guys have a look.

Meanwhile, enjoy some screen shots from the two i've done so far.


Softwares: Maya (modelling), Cinema 4D (Texturing & animation), After effects (compositing & colour correction)

Time taken: say 6hrs on each!

My Song of the Day

Heard this song this morning and i have been stuck ever since! Sewa delivers some awesome range of vocals on this track she calls "Mulele". Whatever she means by that

The song is only one day old on my computer and check out the play count already (covering eyes)

Different, very very African! A very rich African video is only befitting of a song like this. Never met this lady before, but if you read this and you know her. pls tell her she's got a fan!

Screenshots of Lancky C's Video

Here are four screen shots from a video i recently finished. Lancky C is this 6ft plus guy (he's very tall) with some very lovely songs that i personally love. His first single is called 'Beautiful" and i think the song is a beautiful one as well.

The idea for the video is to give the song strong appealing visuals that will compliment the emotions of the song. It follows a bitter-sweet relationship Lancky C has going on. Shot on a chroma (green screen) stage on location in Lagos in about 5hrs.
Technicals: Shot on the Canon 7D camera. Softwares: Adobe suite and Cinema 4D.
I'll be uploading the video in a very short time. Watch out for that! Cheers!
