Hi all!
I'm approaching shooting where I need to create concert atmosphere in a club for 400 people.
I wander if anyone could give me tips on what I should be aware of.
I'm thinking I should use 4 - 6 cameras. (it's a low budget video so most likely 4 cameras)

But...here come questions.
Which camera should be put on crane? What crane would be best for this kind of shooting?
what kind of lights are the best for this stuff - genuine concert lamps,or film lamps.


If anyone had anything to say about this I'd be happy:)
greetings to you all

A few things to keep in mind:

* If this is a low budget video for a not very well known band, there is a chance you will only end up with an audience of about 30 people. This is the consistent problem with this sort of shoot at a low budget level - "oh we'll have a packed club!" ... oh no you won't.

* Go look at the club and the lights. They probably have old Par-Cans up with the most brutal, heavy-duty filters you can imagine. Stylistically, is this OK? Or are you shooting a woman singer and want to make her look glamorous? If the latter, assume unless you change all the filters in those Par-Cans, you will have to bring in your own lights...
