I rap and sell cds out of my trunk (just laugh it's fine) and I'm known by a lot of people from my city, and I want to make a video but all I got is a Samsung camera with video recording at 640x480 and I wanna make a decent music video.
I know how I want to make my video but I need a lot of things. I have AE CS4 (too cheap to upgrade) and I have a list of effects to choose from and idk how to make.
First of all every (new school) video I've seen has a really clean looking tint effect and I want to know what to use at night time? I mean like in Lil' Wayne's "The Bloc is Hot" the scene where he's lit up from a lot of light exposure and he's standing in front of a wall with bullets in it, makes him look unique. I need something like that.
I also wanna know how to do the NewBlueFX Pyscho Strobe effect, that looks mint.
10$ through paypal to anyone who can help me understand how I need to make my scenes work out for me, I have some practice at it but I don't want it to look amateur-ish at all.
