Open Mic Night Documentary by Intheblues

This is the official first documentary about open mic night’s in Melbourne Australia.  This is my first attempt at a documentary style film and I really enjoyed the process of coming up with a concept, script, and then producing a final product.  This is very much a similar project to releasing a new album, the same amount of time and effort goes into it and I have learned a lot on the journey.  For those who are interested in the technical aspects of this production I used the following:

  • 2 x Canon XA20 Video Cameras (1080p 50FPS)
  • Sony Vegas 13 64 Bit Video Editing Suite
  • Waves Audio Plugins
  • Rode NTG-1 Microphones (on camera)
  • Rode Reporter Microphone (seen in all interview scenes but not active in all)

Cast and Crew

  • Keith Watts – Interview #1
  • Alex Dapiran – Interview #2
  • Wayne Powell – Interview #3
  • Linda Trickey – Interview #4
  • Shane Diiorio – Camera, Editing, Script, Audio, Producer
  • Neill Denovan – Camera
  • Jessica Rush – Creative, Editing Assistance
  • Thanks to Debra Zuliani & The Green Table
