Live at Oyster Ridge 2019: Escaping Pavement (Video)

Working on this video was interesting: I recently found that one of my cameras has an audio glitch, delaying the audio in the clips by eight seconds. Normally, syncing is a breeze since I’ve gotten really good at matching waveforms and documenting my recording start times, but it took me a few tries to figure out what was actually happening. I’m doing a reset on the thing and we’ll see if it behaves when I go and do some tests.

If you’re already longing for Oyster Ridge 2020, check out this lovely performance from Escaping Pavement to get you by! This band was slick and soulful and their sound was so inviting! Escaping Pavement have a new album out and you should check it out on their website below. They came to Wyoming this summer to offer some of their trademark southern rock-inclined, neo-country sound. I’m starting an ORMF playlist of all the awesome bands we got to enjoy in Kemmerer, can’t wait for next year!

The Highlights are here! (Video)

This weekend, I got to share the first of many videos I put together for the Oyster Ridge Music Festival. The last few weeks have been intense with cataloging and syncing the footage of the six cameras I was working with. It was also my first deep dive into DaVinci Resolve, so I’ve been learning as I go and completely feel like I came out on the other side with some DaVinci assurances. It’s unbelievable the program is free to use, it’s a great tool.

So as the coming weeks unfold, I’ll be posting interviews and performances from all of the bands, in an effort to capture the spirit of this phenomenal experience. I have to take a step back and let my heart fill with gratitude: I’m fortunate to work on something that truly speaks to what I love and want to advocate for. I can’t imagine a better cause to contribute to than to a festival that brings joy, community, and the performing arts to our great state. It’s a real privilege to capture the talent on that stage and to work with such kind, wonderful people. To get to work on this festival is truly a dream.

See you next year!
