Tenor after Tenor!

The title is not some cheap ploy for charitable donations I assure you! This June I have filmed two commercials for both the tenor Alfie Boe (Les Miserables) and the Mexican tenor Rolando Villazon.  Alfie was an extraordinarily humble and kind person and it struck me at the end of the shoot I noticed that I was the only crew member not sporting a beard hence my excuse for the silly expression of mine on to photo with Alfie. On several of the takes the Directors Ross & Ed (‘The Late Misters’) asked Alfie to perform at real working volume and the experience of standing next to a tenor at full intensity was incredible and you could really feel the low frequencies running up through the tripod!

Many thanks to the ‘Late misters’ for their great concepts and themes from the bright high clean key feel for Alfie Boe and Low key High contrast faded textural shoot for Rolando.
Both shoots were shot with my Sony PMW-F3 with MTF adapter, Nikon prime lenses and recording to ProRes HQ on an onboard Ki Pro Mini (Supplied by VMI) Pee Wee Dolly supplied by Filmscape media.
Produced for Decca Records by STEAM Motion and Sound. Produced by Clayton Jacobsen.

    The fans of Alfie Boe have always been impressed by his humility and awed by his talent. He has shown time and time again how appreciative he is of his fans.
