My next door neighbor Sue regularly hosts a Quebec music session with some of Seattle's finest musicians, and invites me to listen. Here is the video.
The making: this was my first video with the new Zacuto finder, which snaps onto the LCD screen and magnifies it. It allows me to actually focus the 5D. It This almost makes the 5D into a real video camera.
I shot with a plan to do cutaways. The great thing about when musicians play in a session is that they repeat the tune again and again. I put markers on the beat and layered them in the timeline. It was fairly easy to align the markers so that in any track I picked the playing was in sync with the master audio track.
Having things like this happen on my street makes me feel spectacularly lucky to live where I do.
