In my guise as a music photographer I occasionally get called apon take photos of bands for promotional purposes. I may snap them reportage style in the recording studio, on a location shoot, or occasionally, if needed, live.
I caught up with the band Farleigh At one gig of their local gigs in Leamington. There was hardly any light and all I had with me was my cheapy mpeg video camera (A Sanyo Xacti H2). Never-the-less in what turned out to be an awesome gig I felt inspired to grab a few minutes of low resolution footage for posterity.
The band have some really good tunes and not wanting the footage to go to waste, I dropped it in, along with a few photos I had from before, to Glen of CV21.co.uk
All I said was.. “Make it look better that a bunch of raw low res clips and he said.. “I’ll see what I can do.”
We stole the track ‘Open Road’ for a bit of backing (Sorry Guys.. 🙂 ) off their myspace page and before you know it.. A video was born.
