I filmed my first show in 15 months this past Friday, and boy was it a debacle. Doors were at 4 for this event, so I left work as early as I could to get there and get a decent table. I get there at 4:45 and we had 2 options- a table WAYY the hell back there, or one right up front but very far to the right. We picked the one to the right and the PA obstructed my shot of the stage.
I was able to move back to an empty table right behind ours and shoot almost all of Jason’s set. This was so awesome, includes Pinhead Gunpowder and Big Cats (his first) band from Arkansas songs.
I had not touched the GH5S in 15 months and I forgot to attach the rode mic to start (so it cuts in late), then I lose focus for about 10 minutes and did not realize. I guess I should have practiced using the gear before leaving home.
Oh, and this is in 4K but it takes youtube FOREVER to process to UHD. It has been processing for a day so far. It will get to 4k eventually.
