No capoeira this year?

Well they did turn up about an hour late for the last Artsfest Finale and then went on FOR EVER...maybe next year though if next year's Capoeira committee promise they won't screw up again?

Anyway was a good show this year - loving the new acts!

How much are these dvd's likely to be? More importantly, are the profits going into the live/stoic coffers or more rightly to the ArtsFest charity Hospices of Hope?

DVD Cost: depends on a number of factors, including how long the final edit is and how many people are interested (e.g. the show is about 2h 20m raw I think, the bitrate required to get that onto one single-layer DVD would make it poor quality - so its a toss up between a dual-layer DVD and a 2-DVD set). There are sections of nothing but dark stage but probably not 30 minutes/an hours worth.

If lots of people are interested they can be professionally mastered of course!

The last set of DVDs didn't make any profit (they're still available), and we got a reasonable deal on some of the components which we might not get again...

Great video and great story... thanks to the Live! team for such fabulous coverage of the event... I'm fully expecting to buy a DVD when it comes out!

What's happening with the DVDs??

Mar 19 2009 16:54

Some of the sound has some problems, so I'm going to try and clean it up (people ignoring the fact that we'd taped off some seats, walking over the tape and hitting microphones etc). We've got a good stereo sound track but it needs patching in places.

I have an edit suitable for a DVD done, it just requires the soundtrack to be fixed. I've also been a bit busy with other things, as you may have noticed ;)

Actually, if there are any volunteers who'd like to watch the proto-DVD and give me timecodes of places where the sound is rubbish, that might assist with the process.

These are ready to go to print, pre-order now from here, for ?5:

They should be ready by the time people come back after Easter!

I seriously don't remember any cameras being there. I must have been panicking too much to notice. Never before in my life had I regretted not watching "strictly come dancing". Still, congratulations to Lauren and the team for making it run so smoothly. I can't improvise like Billy can and any hold-ups would have been cripplingly cringe-worthy.

Did you get a DVD Rob? They're quite snazzy. I have mine in the Guilds Office if you want to take a look. Just drop me an email.
