A hometown gig in Lisa Stansfield’s comeback tour – a special gig to record for posterity. Not only that, it was our first time working in Manchester’s iconic Bridgewater Hall.
With a sold out capacity crowd the production design had to minimise our footprint, whilst at the same time still providing footage that really captured the essence and vibe of the event.
The 9 camera rig and extensive liaising with the venue allowed the minimum ‘seat kills’, without compromising coverage. Use of a Tower Cam at the rear of the stage helped provide some high production value movement in the absence of a jib or tracking cameras.
We also filmed an interview with Lisa which provided a twenty minute bonus feature, intercut with moments from the gig itself.
Following the Concert Film’s release in August 2015, it went to number 4 in the UK Music DVD charts. Our third chart topping DVD release in twelve months.
