Ryan Dolan’s ‘Only Love Survives’ video shoot

I had the great pleasure recently in shooting the footage of Ryan Dolan for his new single and Eurovision 2013 entry, ‘Only Love Survives’. Co-written by Wes Devine, and produced by Zenemy Music, it’s a catchy dance track which required the video footage to match in with the song. I had two options – to shoot against a green screen, or to shoot everything live in camera. As the latter was my overall preference, we hired out the TLT in Drogheda, which boasted a full size projector screen. Then it was just a case of lighting Ryan correctly in the different scenarios needed. Everything was shot on two Canon 5D mkIII’s and a 5D mkII, allowing us to get multiple camera angles in one take. The HD footage was then added to the existing clips and filtered so it all tied in together nicely.
Now, it’s just fingers crossed to see if he wins RTE’s Eurosong 2013 and becomes Ireland’s representative in Malmo, Sweden this year.
