How to take good videos with your smartphone for our video clip – Rapalje Show #40

I will tell you how you can take good videos with your smartphone and have great audio quality as well! Will you be in our official music video for “Flatlands”?

Most smart phones take amazing videos with good sound quality, so why not just join in and record a video of yourself dancing and singing along to our song “Flatlands”? You will see it back in our official music video.

And are you our Patreon? Then you get your very own music video with just you and Rapalje cut by Maceál, or Maceál even records the whole video with you!

Now you can film yourself for our brand new official music video for the song “Flatlands”. You can make this video yourself and I’ll explain to you how to do that on your smartphone.

  • Use high resolution (1080P HD – 4K UHD)
  • Clean your lens with soft cotton or microfibre cloth
  • Shoot horizontally (wide)
  • Use enough light, go outside on a bright day or set up lights indoor
  • When you use the flashlight on your smartphone, take the phone out of the case to avoid reflections
  • When you see flickering or lines, set frame rate to 25 or 30 fps

Video: Drunken Sailor – Balve Cage

“Drunken Sailor” is a sea shanty, also known as “What Shall We Do with a/the Drunken Sailor”.

The shanty was sung to accompany certain work tasks aboard sailing ships, especially those that required a bright walking pace. It is believed to originate in the early 19th century or before, during a period when ships’ crews, especially those of military vessels, were sufficiently large to permit hauling a rope whilst simply marching along the deck. With the advent of merchant packet and clipper ships and their smaller crews, which required different working methods, use of the shanty appears to have declined or shifted to other, minor tasks.

We won’t tell you what the surprise is yet, but we promise that you will be very happy with it, so make sure you’re ready! Because of the already announced Red Hot Chilli Pipers who will be on our stage on Sunday 10 June, we expect the tickets to go faster than ever so do not wait too long.
