Polecam on Kings of Leon

Polecam filming Kings of Leon

For the 3rd tour running Polecam has been used for the Kings of Leon live shows. Phil Woodhead HOD for the KOL video department has many years experience with Polecam, even operating it years ago, and knows with the right operator there is nothing to beat it for intimate close up work and and dynamic elevation shots whilst being confined to the outer reaches of the stage. We have a new operator this year, explained Woodhead. Our other guy Mikey Cordier has gone on to become our handheld operator so we had to find a new guy who can multitask, one of those tasks being jib work. We were lucky enough to find Rob Stansfield who had used jibs many time before and relished the chance to get up close and personal with the band. We concentrated on the bass player Jared and he seems to really warm to the camera, again using Polecam helped that process happen quicker which in turn helps us keep evolving the video elements of the overall live show. Polecam has come into it's own as a dynamic effects camera for Woodhead's own effects system VideoDust. Polecam's ability to create great foreground using the wedges and lights as props really works a treat with our video effects. It's what we have been doing for a bit now with VideoDust, using the live camera pictures as realtime graphic content.
With the new album coming out in september and noises of a tour sometime after that, I will be asking for Polecam on my kit list. Who knows though, the bean counters run the show these days.
