Free Video Promo recording

Want your gig videoing?

I've come over all altruistically warm hearted on account of other people giving things away. Got me to thinking "ask not what my community can do for me but what can I do for my community" (good line that....am hoping few will notice I've robbed it).

Anyhow, I would like to repeat a previously made offer to record your gig and thereafter (if you wish) prepare you an edited "mashup" for promotional purposes. I will also supply a full DVD copy of the whole recording made (not just the mashup) and will liaise with the band/artist to ensure they have complete control over the final product (I have very forgiving ears and often don't notice bum notes which obviously you wouldn't want in the final cut, not that I'm saying anyone here ever plays bum notes of course or that if you do that you conspiratorially will wish to exclude them from public viewing....crap....get out of this wile I can!)

I'm not a pro but I have good quality equipment and simply lack good opportunities to use it. All I would ask is that as I'm on a very low income at present a contribution to fuel costs would be most welcome if I'm asked to travel any significant distances (I'm based in Colne).

Here's a couple of recent examples

Can you send me a gig list? It will need to be a night I'm not gigging and some venues are better to record at than others etc etc

@ Jackson Kay band - I'm gigging on 14th August unfortunately (the Ighten Leigh would have been a great place to record at - so much atmosphere when its hopping). No gigs in so far for 5th June so fingers crossed I can get to you then. The stage area at the Talbot lends itself well to recording and i've been watching your promo vids with interest for some time - really class performances there. Great to see so much variety in the set and a truly original approach to covering the material. I'd be more than happy to film you lot.

@ egbert - 16th April, 29th April and 7th May are do-able thus far.

I should have mentioned in my original post that as much as I would like to it's not fair on my band to hold dates (if we are all available to gig that is) for me to go out videoing so all offers are subject to availability but I will make every effort to get to you as soon as the schedule allows.

Consider yerself booked for the 1st of May at The Hindley Arms charity do - 6 bands and all in a good cause.

And I'll bung you a few quid for petrol!

@ AYP - you're on. Be prepared for Spielbergesque shenanigans.....I may even make it a multi camera extravaganza

# Posted by Stu - 29/03/2011, 23:23 (GMT)

@Al - i think you should have to wear a disguise in two of your three bands on the day though ;)

# Posted by egbert - 29/03/2011, 23:24 (GMT)

OK, let me know if dates go otherwise shout up for more info

# Posted by Alyerpal - 30/03/2011, 00:00 (GMT)
