Another show, another run-in with Ace of Spades security crew. I got to the venue SUPER early, during soundcheck to secure permission. Drew & the band were cool about it and got the OK for me. I went to dinner then came back and set up my equipment, which includes a tripod at the far corner of the photo pit next to the stage. I have done this multiple times before. 5 minutes before the show, I have 3 cameras set up and running. Mr. yellow jacket comes over and here’s how the conversation goes: YJ: “Is that your camera up front on a tripod” Me: “Yes it is.” YJ: “You need to move it, it can’t be there” Me: “….(shocked pause) WHY? I have set up tripods there multiple times and it has worked out fine” YJ: “You camera is going to get destroyed. it will get knocked over” Me: “I assume full responsibility for the camera” YJ: ….. (pause) “You need to move the camera” So, instead of 3 camera, this is 2 camera. I tried to be extra diligent with the camera work to make up for it. Thanks to Agelos for the killer edit(he likes this band a lot). Taped with 1 HFG10, 1 HFG30, and audio is from Rode Video Pro microphone. Thanks to the band for permission, and thanks to the guy on the upper level for watching the second camera!
