Madeleine Peyroux - Between The Bars

This music video was shot with a Canon Elph. In the race for more resolution/more pixels/making video look like film, we sometimes forget how well-chosen video images have their own beauty. The key is to use video for what it captures best - low light situations, motion, non-literal images, extreme long shots that take advantage of the depth of field. And when you have beautiful video images like this, don't clean them up to try to make them look like film - degrade them further, allow them to vignette and pixelate.


  1. I am so excited about this blog. I'm always looking for some good ones. This video is bea-ut-tiful.

  2. Glad you like it! I hear you've been in some short films.
