The filming of a music celebrity

The filming of a music celebrity

I grew up playing the piano, trumpet and my most favorite, the drums. At the height of my musical career(if you can call it a career), our band played at school dances and local bars throughout Maryland. It was a great time of my life! I would dream of one day playing at the big arenas and thousands of fans screaming and singing along with our songs. Unfortunately, that dream did not come true. Life happened and I went from job to job looking for my passion. In 1997 I found it. I entered the world of video. Fast forward to today and while I may not be playing in front of screaming fans, I have had the opportunity to film musicians that do.

This past weekend my company had the privilege to work Joan Armatrading to film her solo world tour and create the dvd of that show to be sold world wide. It was an 8 camera shoot, utilizing roving cameras, jibs and sliders. They say musicians can be full of themselves, but not Joan. She was so personable, and accommodating. The experience for the In Focus Studios crew was so pleasurable. We recorded 2 of her shows and 1 rehearsal. After the first show Joan sat with us for 2.5 hours going over the footage from the previous night making sure we captured what she wanted. She was thrilled! Needless to say, so was I! Now the editing process begins. I am looking forward to showing Joan the first cut and ultimately seeing it sold throughout the world.
