We are currently in the process of creating an audio and video compilation DVD for St Helen’s Concert Band to promote and celebrate their strong historical roots. As part of this project we were also asked to film the band playing a recent live show to represent the members in the present day line up.
The band were asked to play at Liverpool One Proms in the Park over the bank holiday, Jubilee weekend, so we went along to film.
The morning of the concert was glorious; the sun was out, there was a nice cool, slow breeze and the skies were blue -perfect! We got to Chavasse Park a little early to check out the stage and start setting up our equipment.
When we arrived it was already busy with people lounging on the grass and reclining in the special Liverpool One beach chairs. It was a great opportunity to test out our new Jib with remote pan and tilt head. We set this up just to the side of stage, allowing us to pan up and over the band getting some great shots looking down on them and from behind the conductor.
We also used our Canon DSLR and slider to get some establishing and general shots of the crowd and park. The band played for a total of 40 minutes, indulging in some of their favourite songs for the Liverpool crowd.
The entire set was filmed from a variety of angles and we managed to get some great footage!
Overall, it was a great day out! A big thanks to Liverpool One for putting on such a great concert!
