Hey guys, I've finally finished work on my music video for 'Little lights', I hope you fellow kitcheners enjoy it!



'Little Lights' tells the story of a light in darkness. It's a small window into a place, time and -most importantly- a feeling, and I hope you find it an interesting journey. Subscribe to my channel for more videos like this!

This was a solo project. For the video I used CryENGINE, a real-time 3d computer game engine (used on the crysis series, ryse, prey, kingdom come deliverance) for everything, environment, lighting, cinematography. The cave walls are photogrammetry 3d assets from Quixel megascans. For the music I use Reaper Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), with all vocals from myself.

We are all lucky to be alive at a time where the technology exists to allow us a great freedom of expression. Software like Reaper and CryENGINE and asset libraries like Quixel Megascans are incredible tools that can be used to create journeys and visions we've never seen before.

There are Great Big Things still to come!

Cheers,
Joe Garth

Hi Joe @GreatBigThings , that is an outstanding piece of work. Being a bit old school I hadn't heard of most of that software you mentioned, but I will be researching it all for sure. The cave environment is amazing and very atmospheric and your little light(s) creates an intriguing narrative.

I could imagine seeing that video projected on a giant screen at a live festival gig. Maybe we will see you at Glastonbury UK soon!

Well done anyway, nice track with a very credible vocal performance too.
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!

I Like it!  You sing it well.  The drum sounds are a little thin for my tastes...my ear wants to hear something more bass heavy with a big long reverb.  The strings and keys are nice.  I've never tried to do a video...kudos on yours.

@GreatBigThings Loved the track when you originally posted. Video looks fantastic. I have no idea how much work it is to create stunning images like this. Was this a long project?

Thanks for the feedback guys, I'm constantly learning/looking to improve. Your ears are greatly appreciated!

@MichaelA - That would be a dream come true!

@tompaul - I know what you've mean they could have more impact. I've been working on my percussion more these past few months (this track is ~6months old). Hopefully on my next tracks you'll hear the difference :D

@Olbigead - It's certainly faster to produce nowadays. I think the project took me about 3-4 weekends, with maybe a few late weekday evenings mixed in.

Really cool song. and sweet video to go along with it. Your voice and delivery remind me of Jon Bellion.

I personally would have loved a bigger build up in the chorus toward the middle and end. That's my only personal critique ;)

Production is super clean and professional and the vocals sound great. Well done!!

It's fantastic that you chose to create a music video for this piece!  I remember your first post of this song and that actual photo of the cave in New Zealand. It's great that you put it to life, I especially like the part where the light first enters the cave -I liked the manner by which it lit up the textured walls. The video complements the music really well. Great work! I look forward to watching more of your projects :)
