What Next?

As we approach the phases of getting back to “normal”. We still don’t know what normal will be. We also don’t know what it means for live events and concerts.

So where do we go from here? A lot of people have been wondering that and quite frankly, so have I.

I know there are a lot of artists going rogue on the streaming and social media. That’s great! Keep the music alive! I know drive-in concerts are now becoming a thing. I know there are a couple of different streaming platforms that are happening and are in the works.

Will this become the new normal? The way we experience events becomes this social distancing and separating of people?

To tell you the truth, I’ve been reading a lot about what others in the industry think. And I have to agree with a lot of them. Regardless of how the events world is going to change, it’s never going to be the same as a live show with a cheering crowd.

There I said it. Eventually, can we get there? I’m hopeful, but enjoying a loud, noisy concert with the crowd singing at the top of their lungs will never be the same.

Go the Distance

So I worked on my very first music video. Like legit music video with a very well known country artist. And I’m not going to lie, it was a lot of work, but I really like it and what film entails.

However, as much of an animal I am when it comes to working, I will say I really, really do enjoy working my live events.

I guess the thrill of getting it right on the first time is just an adrenaline rush. When you work with film, you have to get the shot from three to five different angles. Which is fine, but that means you have multiple opportunities to get it right. When you do events live, you either get it right or you don’t.

But I’m very happy I’m getting more film work. Because now I can officially say I have experience on tour, festivals, corporate events, venues, reality TV and music videos. Which for me is a big deal because lets be honest, everyone wants a piece of the pie. I’m lucky to get a slice.
