Two objectives: to cover the entire festival from a photo and video point of view and to broadcast it in live. Make the highlights of this weekend’s diverse musical programme, idyllic setting and the discovery of new Swiss artists as real as possible.
This festival, which takes place every year on the shores of Lake Geneva in Crans-près-Céligny in the canton of Vaud, is a delight for young and old, music lovers and professionals alike, but also a production company like LakeProd !
Our professional photographers have focused on emotion. For spectators and artists alike, this festival was a great experience. The various shots were intended for the event’s social networks, to feed the website and press articles. Some photos have even gone so far as to be shared by great names in international music !
Shooting in the evening and going up at night to broadcast the videos in the process had become the daily life of our team for 4 days ! And this game was worth it !
4 days, 4 atmospheres: capture the best moments by video to summarize the event.
So, in addition to having to prepare mentally before the arrival of each artist, the objective during these different days was to adapt the video and photo, but also the technique used in relation to the musical style of the day to be able to bring the emotion of this event to life to Internet users.
As close as possible to the artists
It was during the rehearsals of the groups that our team took up residence in order to diversify their visual content: Gif, photos portraits of the artists, micro interviews… for a live broadcast on social networks.
Our team of professionals had to manage a very short timing, 10 minutes before each concert everyone had to be present at the most suitable place for a striking result. Once there, it was necessary to be reactive, but also creative. Thus our team was able to translate into images the spirit of each artist on stage during the Caribana Festival.
The word of the photographer:
“Short but intense moments, it was necessary to adapt to each artist present on stage and to stand up to a wild audience! For my part, Mat Bastard’s concert, even behind my camera, was one of the best concerts I could have photographed”
