whelan’s 16/07/09

Got some work filming a gig in Whelan’s last week for JUSTMULTIMEDIA. The gig was a guy called Phillip Donnelly who according to a blurb on this website is, and I quote, “recognized by both his audience and peers as being one of Ireland’s most gifted and popular musicians.”

The band warming up

I was a little embarrassed to say I’d never heard of this ‘clontarf cowboy’ but nonetheless the place was rammed. He was joined on stage by Thin Lizzy drummer Brian Downey and Republic of Loose frontman Mick Pyro for a few tunes. The crowd was also littered with Industry muso-folk including HotPress feature writers and irish country-pop fiend Mundy. I also got to go upstairs in Whelan’s which I have never done before. Was interesting to see the other side!

The filming went well and was a lot of fun. Four-camera setup, I was on camera 1 on the left front of stage, with the rest of the team covering right front, back wide and above. The outing was a demo of the services hoping to be offered by JUSTMULTIMEDIA with a 4+ camera setup complimented with live mobile editing suite. Which eliminates the need for intensive post-production, if any at all.

It’s a great setup and with many more shoots on the cards, here’s hoping it takes off in a big way. In this age of the lightning fast digital download, bands need, more than ever, to sell their live show and build upon what the punter hears on their iPod.
