Mapex video @ The Jazz Cafe London with Will Stokes

Another video with Will, this time @ a venue I have spent many a soundcheck hanging around. The Jazz Cafe in Camden.

Incredibly helpful soundman on the day produced 2 414’s and a beta for the kick – so saved me having to use my perfectly adequete Red5’s… The idea is to get a real sound, so hopefully that is the case.

Several DSLR’s dotted round the room with some GoPro’s in there too.

Edit in Edius which did everything – including the levels on the raw mics….

Mapex video @ The 12Bar with Will Stokes

Shot in 12 Bar Club in London during July. Great to work with Will, who had a terrible time getting to us, having lost his van keys!

Canon 5d MkII, a 550d and Mr Havard’s 600d upstairs plus some GoPros… once through with my own microphone’s!

Edit in Edius, titles fly on and off and colouring all done within – with type made up in PShop

As it says the charming drummer Richard Jupp from Elbow talks about where he and the band are at, just before the release of their latest album –┬áBuild a Rocket Boys! filmed at Blueprint studios.

There are 5 pats to the interview. Following the youtube link will take you to the other ones. Hosted by youtube from Yamaha Download’s account.

Shot on 2x Canon DSLR’s with some GoPro footage in emergencies. Audio into a R16. Unfortunately didn’t have access to the drum mics… so had to do it on the fly with a couple of NT55’s

[blip.tv ?posts_id=2001559&dest=21212]

Here Dave Weckl demonstrates the new Phoenix Drums. Shot in Manchester on a tour he was doing in the UK. Managed to fit in a bit of time for an interview and some playing before the doors opened. Four cameras, Canon XH-A1 with SG Pro 2 doing the close ups at the front and sides, HG-10 doing long shot (AVCHD) and 2 DV cameras, the mighty Transmedia Sound boys lent me, one on an overhead and one clamped for the footwork.

Through Edius having transcoded the AVCHD to a HQ file.. so I could actually edit it! Resize in Virtualdub, and Flix to FLV 512k /160 mp3

It resides here…..at the Yamaha Drums UK site
