The Drum Shed – Educational Video

We were approached by The Drum Shed to film some of the exam pieces that their students learn, so they could have them on Youtube and their own website. The idea was to film Craig, who runs The Drum Shed, playing the drum pieces using multiple camera angles to add some movement to the video. We filmed the video at the amazing venue and recording facility in Darlington, The Forum Music Centre

As these videos were to be used not only for promotional use, but also educational, we had to think about the camera positions, as we had to be able to show the viewer exactly what Craig was playing. We chose an over head camera, a wide shot, a ‘Foot Pedal’ shot, and then a Camera Jib shot. Using all of these we were able to cover everything, and make it interesting to watch.
