Thanks for watching, and for your kind words. We use eight to ten cameras, mostly consumer camcorders like my Canon VIXIA or DSLR's like the Canon EOS 5D, recording 1080p at 29.97 FPS. All the cameras are owned and operated by parents of Roosevelt students. We capture two performances back-to-back. The first one we stay on the periphery, and then go in close on the second performance. That gives us 16-20 different angles. I ingest the camera files into Avid Media Composer at low-resolution, group them, and select angles while in multicam mode. Avid displays nine angles at once, which means I have to switch between two banks of nine to see all the choices. (I eliminated two angles, due to technical issues.) The audio on this one was tricky because there were only five singers in the studio, so I mixed in some of the natural sound to make it fuller, and give it more presence. The choreographer was shouting directions part of the time, so I had to switch back and forth between the two performances to get the cleanest track. Finally, I ingest the media at full resolution, correct the color (not an easy task with so many different cameras), and then output the finished video as an H.265 MP4 file using Sorenson Squeeze. The Read-a-Thon is a month-long event at Roosevelt, and the flash mob is only a small part of it. The kids put in lots of time writing the song, recording it, and rehearsing the dance. Louis has devoted many hours to organizing it, and Kyrra our choreographer is very generous with her time. For my part, I just want to capture all their hard work for everyone's enjoyment.
