We were approached by Welsh-language rock band Candelas to film their album release show at Neuadd Buddug, Bala, North Wales.

The show was being recorded in its entirety for BBC Radio Cymru and broadcast live. The band wanted the entire set filmed to promote the album, as well as releasing a music video for one of its singles.

The main challenge for this production working in low light for the majority of the shoot. With the addition of a Sony A7s to our roster for this shoot, we did have an advantage when it came to shooting in low light, and for the other cameras, correct lens choices were paramount.  As always, the FS700’s slow motion capabilities came in handy to capture some of the more energetic parts of their performance, and resulted in a video which proved an effective memento of the night, as well as showcasing the band’s live performance.
