topic icon Live music filming - The Muddy River band

Maniac Films have just returned from filming Bideford based blues group, The Muddy River Band at Unison holiday park in Croyde.

The setting was a bar/reception area on the site, an intimate venue that challenged us to fit our cameras and an audience into it. We were joined by former work placement student Tim and university student Richard on the evening to make up a 4 man crew.

Lasting 120 mins, the gig was filmed using a Panasonic AF-101 as a static wide shot and 3 x Canon 7D video DSLRs working handheld around the room. We also mounted a GoPro HD camera onto the drum kit to capture a close-up of the drummer.

The footage from the 5 cameras will be edited and turned into a live DVD that will be available for sale. We will also be creating a Live CD from the audio captured using the camera mics and an external Edirol R-44 recorder.
