Weezer’s "Feels Like Summer" Video Shot with URSA Mini Pro

PostWed Aug 30, 2017 1:19 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced that American rock band Weezer’s new music video for its song “Feels Like Summer” was shot using an URSA Mini Pro 4.6K digital film camera. Cinematographer Gabe Kimpson, along with Directors Brendan Walter of Crush Music and Jade Ehlers, were tasked with replicating the legendary Guns N’ Roses “Paradise City” video with Weezer on the stage in front of screaming fans instead, as told from the point of view of a Weezer roadie in the 1980s.

Kimpson has shot music videos for some of the biggest bands in the world, including Fall Out Boy, Train and New Politics. For “Feels Like Summer,” Brendan Walter, of Crush Music, and Jade Ehlers, of Scantron No. 2 Pencil, decided to shoot at Los Angeles’ iconic Rose Bowl Stadium during the Arroyo Seco Weekend music festival where Weezer was performing. During the performance, the URSA Mini Pro was set up center stage at the front of the pit and was mounted on a Manfrotto tripod, then switched to handheld for a more lively, energetic feel.

“This shoot was amazing. We had to include staged behind-the-scenes shots of the band, the stage and the crowd. Since we wanted it to feel like the viewer is a roadie with Weezer, if Weezer had been an 80s hair band, I was shooting in the pit with 20 to 30 other photographers and videographers with screaming fans all around,” said Kimpson.
