My first post here.
I have done some freelance gigs on New jersey Cultural events, primarily music concert and dance performances. Every now and then in my mind comes a thought, is it that how you handle your video camera during recording a show becomes important, or the actual content or the subject matter is the prime focus.
What I feel when I am shooting a music concert, where 2 and more people are sitting and performing, I feel it is a dvisable to keep your camera fixed most of the time, apart from getting odd medium and closeup shots (I am talking about a single camera setup).
Since the main purpose of the whole event was cultural (thats primary Audio), I think one has to concentrate getting the best possible audio feed, and then in post, package the complete audio/video as a unique presentation.
The point I want to make in this post is to understand the basic purpose of the content being shot, and then go about our service rendering to the client. Any thoughts/critics are welcome.
