We shot and edited this video at Strymon HQ with singer/songwriter David Ryan Harris. We decided to go for a more casual, bright look in this video rather than what we normally do at Strymon. Lighting setup was key light slightly right of main camera and fill lights on camera right and camera left. Since we needed to light the three pedals, the fill on camera left was higher and at more of a downward angle.
Here’s a clip of the Facebook Live during the shoot:
This Strymon BigSky video is already almost three years old. The BigSky product page features the video and people still seem to love it. 320,000 views so far!
We wanted to explore the main features of the pedal in a creative and musical way. So we decided on a music video concept that linked elements of the song to different parts of the pedal. It’s a concept that we’ve evolved over time, most recently with the DIG and Flint videos.
Something you might not know: Whenever you see the settings change on the pedal, it corresponds with a part you hear or are about to hear in the song.
Special thanks to State Shirt for the music!
