We used a Rode VideoMic Pro to record the vocals for our song "deadbeat". The video was shot on a 1993 camcorder in South Jersey and Philadelphia. We used the camcorder and 3D text to generate a feeling of nostalgia. As far as camera movement, we tried to mostly use a tripod for fixed shots and classic camcorder zooms. The high quality sound paired with the lower quality video adds a fun effect. We had a lot of fun making this song and video for the Rode Mic contest!
