“God Gave Me You” – Content

Yesterday we posted about Blake Shelton’s music video, “God Gave Me You” and how a good bit of the content used in his music video is actually content from TripleWide Media. We posted some pictures from behind the scenes, so if you haven’t seen it quite yet… make sure to check it out. If you haven’t seen the final music video you can do that on YouTube (they won’t let us embed it) by clicking this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCf2PoTuh4Q&ob=av3e.

Today I want to share with you the exact TripleWide Media clips that made up the Chorus to this song. The editor, Jeremy Stanley, decided to take 4 separate clips and merge them into one video. This allowed for a custom look at a fraction of the cost. If you can find stock content or media that is already pre-produced, you are better off finically and often times it’s hardly noticeable. Anyone can do it if they have a simple video editing software. In this case Jeremy used Final Cut Pro to blend the 4 layers. Curious what he used?

So – Here is a part of the video used on the chorus of the Blake Shelton music video:

As you can tell Jeremy was able to get a great muted-tan color which added to the direction that Nate Griffin (art director) and Trey Fanjoy (director) wanted for the video. They were looking for a masculine and raw feel but still encompass the tenderness that is in the lyrics. Did you pick out all four video clips yet?  If not, here they are:


The top layer is the easiest to identify, as Playback Media’s Stars and Stripes

The second layer is also somewhat easy to identify, but just a little more difficult. It’s Igniter Media’s Galaxy Circles

The third layer gets tougher… can you find it? It’s Playback Media’s Blue Sparkling Dirt

And finally… the toughest of them all. This layer was what generated the base color and also it’s basic energy. The best way to see it is if you look for the “flashes” of white in the video. Those are actually being driven from this layer: Playback Media’s Glitter (Gold)

Did you find them all? They are there. I promise. It’s actually pretty incredible to think that when you play with the color, saturation, composite modes and more of each of these clips… it’s turns out to look the way it did. What have you done with TripleWide Media content? Have you played around with merging two or three multi-screen’s together to make a new clip or motion? This could be a great way to expand your already growing library of media.
