Tips for shooting a live band
on Aug 25, 2011 at 5:47:41 pm


I'm filming a live band (for the first time) on Sat, 3:30 - 5pm so light shouldn't be a prob. 

Will be using an Ex1 with a backup Ex1 camera filming from afar on a roof. 

The end result is to be 5 minutes of various songs, crowd, band etc. Prob max 20 secs per song.

I plan to film the band members for about a minute and a half of each song, then run the Ex1 up the path and film the crowd from the front, using the 2nd camera on the roof to cut to (with random crowd shots) in-between shots of the band - all to disguise the jerky movements between band members (if there are any).

Sound is being recorded by another company and dubbed over after. Going to leave the camera running the whole time so only have to sync once.

Does that sound ok?

Also, it's going to be a dull day, so will set the White bal at around 6k. Is there anything post edit I can do (in color or AE) to spouse it up?
