Shooting a metal band concert
I have a concert of a metal band this night to shoot; but i have also some personal problems so i may not go to shoot it.

Anyway i have already shoot two concert (with consumer cameras). However it was classical music/orchestra, and the lighthing was not a problem. Here, the situation might be diffrent.
I plan to use two cameras (if a friend can borrow us an xm1) that i think is the absolute minimum if i wont to offer at least a decent coverage. The xm1 on one side (or central) and the xl2 on the other side/handheld if needed.

I also have a rode videomic that i can use with one camera; but sure there is also a sound mixer guy, so i can use his output; or maybe i can ask if they record the audio, so i can use when editing.

For the video side, on the Xl2 i plan to use my settings, with the hope that they have enough light so i don't have to use too much gain: i think i use those settings:

+3 gain with custom preset like in footage i posted (maybe i can go to +6 gain?)
Shutter at 1/50-1/25

Any other advice?

EDIT: Nevermind; the band decided to do not tape the concert due to problems with the place where they play. Maybe next time.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 05:11 PM.
