I know this has been covered in small chunks for a while now .. but it would be good to reopen the discussion.
I'm going to film a young indie/rock band to help them promote themselves. Nothing fancy - just them set up as if it was a live gig. I'll be using 3 Panasonic NV GS180 cameras. How would you go about it?
I guess they should mime to a backing tape so we can record multiple takes with no tempo synch problems.
Where would you position the cameras? Would you keep them static or use movement?
The local YMCA would be a good venue - they've got a performance space with a painted black wall behind. Do ytou think this would look ok.
Would it be worth me hiring a few lights or just using the available cheap budget stage lights?
Can anyone direct me to any good live videos you've seen?
Thanks very much
