How it Works
On each shoot date, we will set up lights, cameras, and microphones, and then film several singers according to the time slots scheduled. Each singer will do several takes of their song and we’ll pick the best mix to tape. We’ll edit video on the fly in OBS. And if you want to decorate the studio with your own special touch, we welcome you to do so!
Date: Our first shoot date is Friday December 11 from 4pm to 10pm. We can accommodate 4-6 songs. Time slots are 1 hour per song if you want to use our existing backdrop (as seen in the video on this page), and 1.5 hours per song if you want to decorate the studio.
Accompaniment: We can record several musicians, but no loud instruments such as drum kits, horns, or loud electric guitars because of the difficulty isolating them in a live environment. For example, you could accompany yourself, hire an accompanist, sing to a track, or hire a cajon/bass/guitar trio.
Decor: Background design is up to you. You’re welcome to bring in lamps, potted plants, DJ lighting, a different background to hang from our banner frames, streamers, rope lights, or anything else you can think of! If you can set it up in a half hour with our help, let’s do it! Or, to save time and money, you can use the grey curtain with colored lighting that you see in the demo.
Schedule: Sign up for an hour slot if you’d like to use our existing design, or an hour and a half slot if you want to decorate the studio. After you decorate the studio, we’ll spend 15 minutes dialing in your sound and 30 minutes doing multiple takes of your song. We’ll all agree which take was the best, and within the next week we’ll mix the audio of that take, match it with multi-camera video, and boom! You have a video!
