CHICAGO, July 5, 2000 — Golan Productions, Inc. is working with B-96 radio to produce a variety of video products from their “Summer Bash” concert. This is the fifth year that CBS affiliate, B-96 radio, has used GPI for video production of their concerts.
The all-day and night event took place Saturday June 17th. GPI used five cameras to record the video in addition to a live-video switch for the Jumbo-Tron screen.
“Seeing people’s reactions to our images on the Jumbo-Tron is rewarding,” reflects producer Aigar Dombrovskis. “GPI is able to make bad seats good seats, where the ticket holders in the back can actually walk away saying they saw the show.”
Two digital video camera crews were used gather artist interviews and document the construction of the show.
“If stage hands and performers don’t trip over cables and they question if video is even present, that’s good,” according to Dombrovskis. “It means we have remained inconspicuous and unobtrusive.”
GPI is in post-production on a sales/ marketing video that B-96 uses to gain future sponsorship for their concerts, as well as a documentary of the entire show for company record. In the near future, GPI will also be editing a video for sale to the general public that captures the concert and backstage interviews.
This fall, GPI will celebrate its 15th year of creating award-winning projects for Fortune 100 companies. GPI has the capabilities to complete high- quality productions of live events, commercials, corporate communications as well as music videos. Included in its facilities, GPI has a 1900 sq. ft. sound stage in its Chicago headquarters, as well as multiple editing and graphic suites.
