Making the Video Debbie Nunn 'Summer Sun' Behind the Scenes

Updated: Feb 20, 2021

This is a behind the scenes look at the making of my music video 'Summer Sun'. You may remember me telling you that Spencer and I direct, produce and edit all the videos we make. Sometimes, we even make the props :). Well, for the 'Summer Sun' video we did all of this and more. Even putting Spencer's life at risk with some daredevil filming :) When Spencer and I look at some of the crazy things we do, we just laugh.

Below are some pictures and video clips we found in our archive. I hope you enjoy them :)

The car scene was fun and shot entirely on green screen. Because of this we needed a background that looked like I was driving. Cue daredevil Spencer and stunt driver Deb. We both set out into the countryside to get the shots we needed. I drove my car as fast as I could along a country road whilst Spencer hung out the back of the car boot, lying on his stomach, to get the camera as low as possible to the ground. The life of a :)

Not my car but the studio owners - who kindly let us use it for the day - I had to promise not to sit on the bonnet :)

We spent many hours building small stage boxes and painting them in the garden, using wooden crates and packing pallets. Also some bits and pieces from Ikea :)

Let's hope it desn't rain :) our weather in the UK is so unpredictable..

Bright coloured boxes everywhere

Waiting for the music to be queued for the next take...Lights! Camera! Action!

More tech monitoring the recorded footage from the cameras...Spencer does love gadgets and So do I

The little girl scene watching T.V - We travelled over 200 miles to find this old T.V set

The last shot of the day, I should have known something wasn't right when I was asked to perform on my own with my back to the camera facing the green screen. Anyway, these are professionals right, so I did as I was told :) After finishing my performance I turned around to find they had all disappeared. Hidden somewhere in the studio like kids playing hide and seek :) . it did make me laugh. I won't make you sit through the whole 3 and half minutes of me basically performing to my self but watch the clip below.

After many hours of editing and post production effects below is the music video 'Summer Sun'.'

We had a lot of fun making this video and it was a real team effort.

Thanks to everyone involved.

Please consider picking up a copy of my music - it really helps me to create even more music :)

If you purchase an album directly from me - whether digital or physical - you can rest assured that you've just done a very good thing in supporting independent music!

Thank you for reading, and for being a part of this journey with me. It's because of your support that I am able to continue to do the thing I love most. Thank You.

Until next time,
