Three-camera view of a gig (test vid)

Graham writes....

During tests to see what it's like editing concert footage, I synchronised the three camera views onscreen... and then ran off a 4-minute chunk of it before commencing the editing. I found the results quite entertaining!

Of course, split-screen video is a bit passé these days - it was popular in the 70s, used in films like The Andromeda Strain, but it's still fine for specialist applications like seeing three simultaneous views of Hawkwind's recent performance of "Sonic Attack"!

My camerawork (at ground level) is on the left, and the other two views (downloaded from YouTube) are from up on the balcony, at The Brook in Southampton a couple of weeks ago.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
