Local Seattle video masters Thinklab brought me along to help shoot, edit and color correct several multi-camera performance recordings at On The Boards in 2009-2011
The theatre has been spearheading the idea of capturing live performances, and it was a blast to view a show one night, and then come up with 5 camera positions to shoot it from the next night. So interesting to watch such accomplished performers and directors take you into different worlds every show.
Lots of lessons learned in capturing live performances, and some great experience color correcting feature-length performances under a deadline.
Here’s a trailer for one of my favorites – the incomparable Reggie Watts – but it’s so hard to choose. Check out their site at On the Boards TV, and all the trailers for their shows at their YouTube Channel.
