Young Drummer of the Year Competition Promo

Mike Dolbear and Ade Holbrook’s brilliant Young Drummer of the Year competition. Giving the ten finalists a chance to perform on a big stage and get to meet and learn from top US/UK professional musicians. Took a feed (SD) from the cams feeding the rear projection as well as multiple DSLR’s around the kits. Audio direct from the desk into the XH-A1 at the back of the hall. Interview mics were the Giant Squid into Yamaha Pocketrak & the fantastic HHB Flashmic, with a cardioid head – very handy for noisy situations. Very happy to have grabbed a Cambridge United hero in Dion Dublin afterwards too!

Howard Jones & Nik Kershaw ‘Wouldn’t It Be Good’ – LIVE in 2008

Filmed at London’s Indig02 arena in 2008 and taken from the Howard Jones 25th Anniversary DVD which I (ahem) directed and edited. Mostly shot on Sony EX1’s or EX3’s. We were supposed to be getting the HD feed from the house video mixer too, but that didn’t happen on the night. So it tends to chop about a bit. Edited in Edius on a Multicam timeline mostly.
