We had the distinct honor of filming the Rebirth Brass Band at their regular Tuesday-night spot, the Maple Leaf Bar in Uptown New Orleans.
We wanted to throw a quick video together of the band playing a Carnival staple, "Big Chief" to kick off the 2011 Mardi Gras weekend in style.
We filmed the band using five cameras. Our wide angle was a Sony HDV camera; closeups were done with a Canon 550d; shots of the band from the crowd was filmed on a Canon 1D MK4; the back line was filmed using a Canon 60d mounted on a strong arm; and crowd shots were filmed with a Canon 7d.
Audio production, engineering and mixing was done by Michael Seaman using Pro Tools.
Cameramen: Alejandro de los Rios, Jonathan Bachman, Greg Rhoades, and Tyler Kaufman.
Edited by Alejandro de los Rios using Final Cut.
Special thanks: the management and staff at the Maple Leaf Bar, Basin Street Records and the Rebirth Brass Band.
