Our latest official music video is here. This time we’re back working with Watson ACE on their new track ‘Never Take The Place Of Your Man’. You might recognise the track as this is a cover of the old 80s Prince track, changed somewhat from it’s Pop origins to a folky heartfelt ballad. The track has been getting some airplay in the last few weeks and has been added to the playlist on a number of radio stations including RTE1.
The video features Colm Lynch from Watson ACE and was shot at some stunning locations around Dublin City. The track is being released just in time for the December / Christmas market and is available for download right now from Soundcloud. The track is also available on the band’s current album ‘Backbone’.
We shot the video using our Panasonic GH4, and the Freefly Movi M10 from Movi.ie. Let me tell you, GH4 slow motion and the Movi are a winning combination. It allowed us to move quickly around the Dublin City centre, and as quick as we could conceive a shot we could execute it. Additional lighting gear was supplied by Film Equipment Hire Ireland who are always there to save the day. A big shout out goes to Eoin Delaney from Directing Media who helped out on the shoot. His expertise was invaluable.

Getting married? Need a Wedding Band? Well check out our latest music video with Pink Champagne for some inspiration.
Pink Champagne are an award winning four piece wedding band with a really strong reputation and a lot of style. They’ve previously won both ‘Wedding Band of The Year’, and ‘Dublin Wedding Band of the Year’, and they’ve been nominated for the top slot a ton of times.
The shoot was really fun and energetic as you can tell from the video. To get this fluid dynamic movement, we used the Freefly Movi M10 handheld stabiliser supplied by Movi.ie. We shot on the Panasonic GH4 and had the GH2 as ‘B’ cam. Eoin Delaney from ‘Directing Media‘ was on set to help produce the video, help with the Movi operation and handled ‘B’ cam. Our lighting and lenses were supplied by Film Equipment Hire, which gave us an incredible setup overall. Once everything was set up and lit, we just started rolling and blew through the whole shoot in a few hours. This helped keep the energy up for the band and the crew.
Both ourselves and Directing Media have been working with the Movi gimbal quite a bit since the Spring and we’ve gotten really familiar with the process and everything that’s required to make the most of it. We’re really proud of the video, and we’re looking forward to shooting with this kind of cutting edge gear again soon.

We’ve been very busy and lucky the last few months here at Kerbute HQ. One of our recent and on-going collaborations, this time with Aerial Filming Ireland, has borne fruit; and wow is it ever sweet!
Aerial Filming Ireland is one of Ireland’s premier drone helicopter / UAV businesses run by Steve and Susan of GoodLooking Films. We’ve been helping them out on most of their recent shoots, operating the Movi gimbal attached to the Cinestar 8 Octocopter, and helping with some of the on-site logistics. Drone flying is a tricky business we’ve learned, but it can also be a rewarding and – pardon the pun – uplifting one.
To date we’ve helped out on shoots for The National Lottery (the one where the guy goes mountain climbing to find the Guru?) and the OPW (Newgrange, Tara Hill and St. Stephen’s Green so far) as well as some other exciting shoots. We’ve flown the Canon C300, the Black Magic Pocket, and our own 4K wonder; the Panasonic GH4.
Our most recent shoot was for CBS 60 Minutes Sports who were working on a piece in Kinsale, Cork. Wow, CBS 60 minutes eh? Yeah. It was great.
Susan from Aerial Filming has written a blog piece about the whole shoot, in which she speaks about what went on for the day, and also the tribulations of drone flying. It’s well worth a read for anyone out there interested in hiring a drone for a shoot, and not sure what to expect.
