Directing a live concert DVD







This past week, Director Brian Liu and Producer Jon Adelman flew to Chicago to do a multi-camera HD film shoot for our longtime friend Frank Orrall's 25th-year anniversary retrospective Poi Dog Pondering concerts that occurred at the Metro on December 2nd & December 3rd, 2011. Both shows were monumental, and we were stoked to be there to document them. Many thanks to Chaka, Shannon Pietro, Jason Conny and the rest of our Chicago crew of volunteers. A project of this scale could never have happened without their faith and hard work.

To make things even more amazing, we set up a modest Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to pay for the camera and computer gear we had to rent for the shoot, and to finance the daunting unavoidable massive postproduction costs to come, and met our goal in ONE WEEK! We're hoping the love keeps pouring in so we can push for more interviews, more extras, bigger, better packaging, and much MORE! Just kicking in $50 will help a ton and guarantee you a DVD set.

Check out these screengrabs from various camera positions to see what's to come! These DVDs will be THE ULTIMATE POI LIVE EXPERIENCE that PDP fans have always wanted!

The great thing about taking everything online is that us
OSDs can now compete against the 'big guys' to get the
sessions. In fact, when someone searches online for some
drum tracks, the folks who win are rarely the players you
will have heard of. They are drummers who have learnt about
Google advertising, building websites and making YouTube
videos to promote their playing rather than guys who have
played big gigs with established artists.
