Another Reader’s Project

I love seeing what my readers are creating. Hot on the heels of the video I posted on Feb. 18, I received the following note, with a link to a lovely video featuring great music and beautiful scenery from a part of the world I’ve never visited: Qatar!


Dear Alex,

many months have passed, please see my first “Microbudget” Short Movie / Music Video. It has already been finished in Nov 11, forgot to send it to you.

After I studied your video tutorials and “Make Movies without Money” I also visited 1 DSLR workshop with Philip Bloom in Vienna.

And that’s the outcome – It’s called Violin Dreams in Qatar and the feedback is overwhelming so far. People seem to like it.
Something different from ‘normal’ Violin Video Clips. Thanks a lot for your “help”.

See it here (7min):

Short info:
Featuring Nina Heidenreich, Principal Second Violinist at Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra. This short movie is a modern fairy tale about a young girl passing by a Music Store, getting attracted by a violin, falling into a dream and seeing herself as a talented violinist.

Shot at several locations in and around Doha, State of Qatar, including the Cultural Village, The Pearl-Qatar, The Villagio Mall, Inland Sea and the Steinway Piano Gallery Qatar. Jules Massenet’s ‘Meditation’ from the Opera Thais serves as the main theme.

Entirely shot on a single Canon 7D, Editing, Color Grading & SoundFX done in FCPX.

Would appreciate your feedback.
