In the beginning of the year of 2015, ORF, the Austrian national broadcaster, released some digital simulations of how the stage would look like. It's actually not that different from the final stage, except the final one has plexiglass stairs in the front.
Vienna-Austria, Welcome again to the land of Eurovision during the kingdom of 2015. In this post we're going to talk about the stage! Yay!
Vienna-Austria, Welcome to the land of dreams and nightmares of ESC (nightmares of course for the countries who don't get the ticket to go to the final)!
During the past weeks I paid attention to the "assembly" of the contest in Vienna, so during the next weeks I'm going to publish a series of posts, otherwise it was going to be a huge post! I'll publish the articles as soon as I finish them.
The posts are dedicated to the technical side of the contest and NOT the songs, so don't hope to read my opinions... this blog is called "That Camera Angle" for some reason!
Today's post is not completely "technical", but we'll reach that in a few days!
The 60th edition took place at the Vienna Stadthalle, a great place for sports events, but also for concerts, conventions, etc...
songcontest.orf.at reported that the preparations at the arena started on the 8th of April. The trucks with gear started to arrive to the Vienna Stadthalle. The first step after getting the boxes out of the trucks was to pass it on the X-Ray and to let trained dogs to smell them just to make sure they weren't bringing anything dangerous inside the arena!
250 trucks delivered 2500 tons of material!
This year, the show is broadcasted not only on eurovision.tv, but also on Youtube with better quality! The videos below will be available as the show starts!
Also, Eurovision is making an alternative broadcast in International Sign Language. Shake your hands and learn how to sing without voice! All shows are available on this Playlist
Stay tuned for the blog, because I'm preparing a very special post about ESC for next week!
When using an external recorder, you will need to sync it later in editing.
Today I give you some tips so that you don't stress out in your computer!
Sometimes when you make a video call online, you may have realized that the sound is not always synchronized with the picture. This is not horrible but if you're making a video, the voice must be aligned with the talent's mouth.
If you make videos or take photos, you've probably created some "Do It Yourself" tricks to capture interesting images. Whether it's a motion picture or a static image, there's always some nice tricks everybody can create without spending too much money. Today I share some of my favorites!
This video talks about how to make:
Indy Mogul, an "out of service" Youtube channel, has this video, where Griffin Hammond shares some interesting DIY hacks!
This video talks about how to make:
The next video shows how to make that glorius light ring that can been seen on the people's eyes on the videos that use them. It is specially used on close-ups and extreme close-ups. I used a DIY ring light when I made this video, and I made something similar to the video below. Although the video uses LED's, you can make a ring light with different lights, for instance, I bought a "light hose", like this one, and just taped it in a shape of a circle and attached it in front of the lens with some sticks and duct tape. (It made the effect I wanted, so I'm pretty happy with that :) )
Do you use any of this tricks on your daily-recording-life? Feel free to send your suggestions on the comments section, if you have any :)
Next week, I'll share some tips on how to synchronize audio with video! Stay tunned for that!
