Thursday 25th May 2017 was the night of Huddersfield Mavericks 80s Lounge Opening. I was asked to cover the event and create a short online video to promote the business at 32 King Street Huddersfield. The event kicked off around 7:30 pm with a champagne reception. On offer were some very tasty pizza and a large selection of cocktails.
I used my Canon 5DmkIII camera mounted on a monopod for lightness and flexibility of movement and be unobtrusive. I had a small lightweight camera LED light the Yongnuo YN-0906 and a Sennheiser MKE 400 short camera mike in case I needed to use live sound in the edit. For the interview (screen grab below) I had my Sennheiser radio mike and monitored it using the Sennheiser PX-100-II headphones.
Because it is an 80’s themed Lounge Bar I chose to use use an 80’s track called Cool Blue by Vodovoz Music Productions. This was copyright free music and is licensed for commercial use for 75 Euro paid directly by the client, Mavericks.
The edit is based on the 2:11 minute lenght of the featured music track. This is introduced by Denika Devine, Director of Operations at Mavericks 80’s lounge bars. I sent the usual approval copy via www.wetransfer.com and they liked it so much they put it straight onto their Facebook page.
