Creating this four video pilot set for DJ Insider involved a little bit of everything and used all my production skills.
Pete Lynagh from DJ Insider came to me with the concept last year and we worked first on a taster and then on the concept that is highlighted in this teaser.
Each episode of the online video service for budding DJs and enthusiasts will feature three full length videos and a teaser just like the one below. The three videos will include a multi-cam hot mix shoot, approx. 30min long. A tech talk looking at all the equipment used in the DJs mix and focusing on why they choose that hardware or software, and finally an in-depth interview in a bespoke location.
We used my old haunt of T13 in Belfast for the backdrop, giving quite a gritty edge. For the interview I hired a tour bus and we did a lap of Belfast, not being defeated by the rain I used a GoPro to get footage from the outside of the bus as we chatted on the upper deck of the warm cabin.
My responsibility involved all the production and post-production as well as scouting the locations.
“I was referred to Davy through a friend back in Belfast. He came highly recommended with a range of skills i needed to produce a concept i’ve been working on for a while now. Davy was awesome to work with both before, during and after he brought the concept to life. He quickly became part of the team and went the extra mile in all areas including being fantastically creative with ideas for some of the locations, the interviewing skills and the post production work was brilliant. I will continue to work with Davy as this concept grows, it’s thanks to him it has. I would highly recommend Davy for any of your creative video/photography needs. Thanks Davy – Legend!”
