UK - CPL returned to the attractive leafy environs of Ragley Hall in Warwickshire to provide a full video production package for the Main Stage at the 2017 Camper Calling festival - a new event staged by Jazz Events, part of the Jazz Publishing Group.
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural two-day Camper Calling, this year the capacity was doubled from 3000 to 6000 and another day of fun and entertainment for all the family was added, making it three days, which allowed people to enjoy some rare and endangered glorious late August bank holiday weekend weather – apparently the hottest on record.
Main Stage headliners included Cast, The Lightning Seeds and the Flying Swordfish, and CPL was working for Urban Audio, with a team on site led by Simon Haydon.
Fifty panels of Roe 3.4 mm LED screen was installed onstage, flown off a mid-stage truss and configured as a 4m wide by 3.5m high main screen, flanked by two columns left and right which were half a metre wide and 3.5m deep.
Visuals were run from a d3 4x4pro media server. Artists were able to submit their own footage to be played out during their set or if they didn’t have any specific material, they could supply artwork, a logo or visuals to Simon, who would then produce a creative video montage that would run ‘live’ during their performance.
This gave everyone the chance to have something distinctive, individual and eye-catching on screen. It also made a big difference to the camera aesthetics – ensuring there was always something interesting happening upstage rather than staring into a black hole.
Three camera channels were provided for the IMAG mix which was created by Simon using a Panasonic AV-HS400 PPU.
The line-up also included several other popular bands from the 1990s and noughties including Space, Reef, Musical Youth, Artful Dodger, Backbeat Sound System and others.
