I reckon this one takes home the gold for the craziest shoot I’ve ever worked on. For this I had to produce an eight-hour video shoot with two separate camera crews as we filmed fourteen different bands throughout the National Concert Hall. It was part of GoldenPlec’s ‘Coast to Coast’ fundraiser in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.
As the shoot was sponsored by Nokia we had one camera crew filming on Nokia Lumias and another on DSLRs. After the Nokia crew finished filming they’d then start editing on location and have each video live on YouTube within three hours of filming. All in all it was a really fun and crazy day, made a lot easier by a very passionate team.
The musicians we worked with were Delorentos (who were sound-checking for a gig in Wicklow and drove back up just for the shoot), Leanne Harte, The Vanbrugh Quartet, Liza Flume, Cat Dowling, Crow Black Chicken, Saint John the Gambler, Liz Seaver, Autumn Owls, Inni-K, Aoife Scott, The Boxing Plot, CPNHGN and Amoric.
