Been such intense full-on days with my brother Jo in London filming the making-of of his latest album release, working title “Excalibur” in legendary AIR Studios / Lyndhurst Hall.

Wouldn’t miss any single sweat drop at all 😅

Video Shoot for Jo Blankenburg / Position Music, Czech Republic, 05/2012

May 22nd, 2012

Back from a super exciting video shoot with my brother Jo Blankenburg in the Czech Republic. For his 2nd music trailer album released by Position Music, Los Angeles we traveled to the sophisticated Cinematic Concert Hall in the Czech Republic.

I was geared up to teeth with my fancy filming gadgets: steady cam (hell! that’s a mission controlling this wiggling piece of iron), Dolly (ok, a small rail but effective) and a handful of tripods.

This was a welcome change for me. I usually capture athletes in their surroundings – this being my main focus, but once in the concert hall, filming these expert violinists up–close and seeing their fingers race across the strings, I realized that this could be just another extreme sports discipline.

3 days packed with 14 hours per day of recording and filming more than 130 (!) members of the orchestra topped by the young, 12 year-old singer Dominik and the very old, but never less experienced score reader Igor. Last-but-not-least not to forget the coordinator and phantastic conductor of Capellen Orchestra Petr Pololanik who managed confidently the tight schedule.

Now we’re in the cutting room and in the next weeks there will be a promotion video released at my brothers and my youtube – channel.

We’ll keep you updated on our Facebook pages: https://www.facebook.com/andy.fox.globalstoryteller https://www.facebook.com/jo.blankenburg

Here come some frame-grabs of the raw HD video footage:
