At the RUCKUS in January, we filmed the whole show for the web. We didn’t rent film gear, light the stage for film, or even leave room at the front of the hall for the camera people.
What we actually did was kind of rude, but it was fast and lightweight, and it worked. We handed a bunch of Flip cameras to a few overqualified filmmakers (Michael Feldman, Alan Jeffries, and Matt Dunnam), and said ‘go to it’.
What we got are some great, raw videos to match with our good recording and turn into a youtube playlist. We’ll be posting those videos for you here.
Putting everything on youtube helps people who couldn’t make it get a feel for what they missed, and helps the show have more of a life than just the one night.
