As reported here in April’s GMA Journal, at the Katinas press conference, it was announced “It’s Real,” the debut music video from award-winning
Gotee recording artist The Katinas, is the first Christian music video
shot in Nashville using a High Definition camera. According to Armanda
Costanza, Inc., a Nashville-based camera rental facility, “It’s Real”
was shot using a Sony HDW-F900 camera, also referred to as the Sony 24P, which was used to shoot the upcoming Star Wars films.
“It’s Real,” from The Katinas’ upcoming “Destiny” recording, was
directed by Eric Welch for Broken Poet Productions and produced by Karen Martin. Welch’s credits include videos from dc Talk, Rebecca St. James and Audio Adrenaline, along with clips from country artists Clay
Davidson, Gary Allan and Terri Clark, among others.
“Having worked with Eric Welch in the past, and being a fellow
film-maker, I wasn’t surprised that he wanted to use this camera for
this video,” said Armanda Costanza, owner and president, Armanda
Costanza, Inc. “For capturing images, there is none better. I hope the use of this camera for the video will show the general public, as well
as the industry, that this quality is easily attainable.”
“The Katinas were great to work with,” said Eric Welch, director. “They
were excited to work with the camera because it was very experimental.
I hope the video is unique looking, different visually, and not
typical. I also hope it will help extend their message.”
“For The Katinas’ first music video, we wanted to incorporate some of
the latest technology available,” said Joey Elwood, president, Gotee
Records. “The team that has been working on ‘It’s Real’ has not only
put together a great piece to watch, but one that captures the energy
and excitement of The Katinas’ live performances.”
The Katinas’ “Destiny” releases May 8 and will be distributed by
