Thread: shooting a gig

    Default shooting a gig

    Hi

    My nephew wants me to film him and his band doing a live gig in a pub, music is loud and weird, post-modernist ironic garage punk-rapping or something....anyway the thing is I have one Canon xl1s with on-board mic. Whats the best way to do this.......just shoot hand-held and edit what I get?.... he'll probably record a seperate track which will probably help. He just wants some sample stuff for myspace I think.

    Any thoughts or ideas or don't do's anyone....?

    Any help appreciated

    Turn media does this for a livving, SO best to ask him but I will add my two pence worth. First off I wouldnt use on board. It would be best for you to take a output of the mixing desk. How many cameras you doing it with, just the one?

    I'd try to use a tripod unless requested otherwise - at least for some of the shots.

    I'd also want the audio capturing off-camera, as well as onboard (and I'd only use the onboard audio track to facilitate lining up the better audio during editing).

    His camera has a mic in so he needs to shuv it in their

    Hi Thanks to all for their help, as you say I'll use the on-board mic for lining up at editing, dont have anyone around ( north yorkshire ) to help out so I'll just get on with it and we should get some decent footage.

    Cheers all
