Filming a live music performance is about 2 things. GREAT audio, and capturing moments that show the interaction of the band with each other, and the audience. You want viewers to imagine themselves there, in the venue, part of the excitement. This involves:
- Multiple angles to show the different dynamics of a performance
- Knowledge of how to capture, and then mix audio to emulate the live experience
- Integrating the crowd and venue into the production
Ben Srokosz of Spur of the Moment Media has been filming live music for over 10 years, and producing music recordings for over 20. This experience is what allows the live concert experience to be recreated in video form.
