This one was fun. In the end, I practiced it endlessly, and did 4 takes, 2 days in a row. I ended up using the last take, even though I missed a few cues. There’s one spot where I come out of a fill and bumped my ride so I missed hitting the 16″ floor tom. Another spot I missed a crash as I was over thinking it.
Anyway, overall I think it came out great. I shot this with 4 cameras (some borrowed): Canon 5D MK IV on the shot down over the hihats. A Canon 5D MK III for the shot across the floor toms. My Lumix G85 for the hihat close up and a Go Pro 7 Black for the overhead.
I also tried to match the original song processing so the intro drums are panned left with a heavy flange on the snare and a really crushed/compressed kick drum. Then it opens to a single delay snare for a few hits and then in comes the seriously 80s reverb snare.
I think it might be fun to make a “making of” video for this one to show all the parts in Logic Pro so look for that in the future.
