This live concert video was produced for the Italian Institute of Culture in Sydney, in collaboration with Lando Rossi Photography.
The Institute needed to video/audio record this live performance in full, and receive an integral edit of the 30 minutes event.
We decided to record this piece from 3 camera angles: a wide centre camera to capture the whole stage, and two side cameras for the close-up shots.
For the music audio recording, the client was happy with room quality audio capture without the need to capture in detail every music section, so we decided to install a few room microphones to capture the key areas. This then allowed us to mix the different sources in post for a better result, while keeping costs down without the need to employ a dedicated sound recordist.
The voice of the actor was recorded through a dedicated lapel mic (Tascam DR10L), to achieve an optimal voice clarity and for better post-production versatility.
For the edit, we synced all the raw material (3 cameras and 4 audio sources) into a multicam sequence, adjusted audio levels, used some cuts to iron out the unnecessary pauses, and packaged this into a 1920×1080 30 minutes video with institutional logos and credits.
