We filmed this with 2 cameras (Panasonic AG160a). The clips from the performances were filmed with the same camera and also a Panasonic HE120k (remote control operated) and captured with a KiPro. Sound from both events was provided by the house board.
I'm working with our production group to improve the microphones we use during Artist Talks. These microphones are good because they avoid feedback issues that we have had in our spaces, however, they create some undesirably breath-y noises that we have to fix in post. Any recommendations from the community here on lapel microphones or other options is greatly appreciated.
This is edited in Final Cut 7.0 using both the multiclip editing tool and then adding the performance footage. All the audio was mixed in FCP as well.
We are really excited to have the capabilities to produce a presentation like this so quickly. We likely could have done this as a webcast, though there would not have been a way to include the performance footage. I am excited about future webcasting that we might do at BAM, but I also really like this approach to creating a presentation of an Artist Talk online with enhanced content. This was the first time BAM has filmed, edited and released an Artist Talk before the run of a performance is over. Not only did we have a chance to impact audiences that had yet to see the performance, but perhaps even reach some that had not yet bought a ticket.
I think this talk in particular is a great example of the richness of humanities programming at BAM.
