Letterbox Lullabies is a series of intimate house gigs put on by stalwarts of The Troubadour, Brisbane’s most beloved music venue. This was my second Letterbox Lullabies shoot: Surface Paradise, featuring Matt Redlich, Rowley Cowper and Timothy Carroll.
For these shows I aim to be as unobtrusive as possible, so these videos were shot on a single handheld Digital SLR, with audio recorded by Anto Pink and mixed by Matt Redlich.
The performance of Look At Miss Ohio was one of my favourite live music moments from 2010.
For The Gulf Stream, I wanted to experiment with stabilization (and a little motion tracking of guitar) on the DSLR footage. I was able to get the hand-held footage pretty smooth, but the rolling shutter of my Pentax K7 makes it a bit hard for video geeks to watch.
