WHAT WE DID
The Symphonic Pops of Long Island hired us to help create a virtual music video of A Christmas Festival by Leeroy Anderson. Director Stephen Michael Smith explained that he wanted to bring everyone together for the holidays despite being so far apart due to COVID restrictions. We suggested filming everyone individually and then putting it together that way we can showcase different sections.
This type of project required no shooting on our end. Everything was completed in post production. We took every every member’s individual recording and added them together to create a virtual symphony. Pennylane has our own in house professional audio producer and he put together a wonderful mix of the individual parts. We were then able to piece together everyone’s video so that each member gets some screen time.
These remote videos were very popular during the pandemic, but even as the world opens back up we think they are a powerful tool to bring large disparate groups together.
