I’ve been waiting for a girl… or “opportunity” like this… to come into my life. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! The new year just started, but Litewave Media has been busy with some incredible new Tampa video productions this year. Our latest video shoot was no exception, when we got the opportunity to film with the classic rock band Foreigner.
We were honored when the L.A. based Incite Media hired our Tampa video production company to film a live performance by the band Foreigner for ProFlower’s new Valentine’s Day promotion. Foreigner is one of the world’s best selling bands of all time, having sold more than 80 million records around the globe! They are the king of love songs which made them a perfect partner for ProFlower’s new bouquet. The promotion is called the Hot Blooded Bouquet inspired by the band’s hit song, “Hot Blooded”.
The performance took place at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota. Tickets for the show were sold out. People from all over the country traveled to Sarasota to see the famous band perform their greatest hits, such as Hot Blooded, Juke Box Hero, Waiting for a Girl like You, Feels Like the First Time and I Want to Know What Love Is. As part of the ProFlower’s promotion, everyone in the entire audience received a rose when they came into the venue. When Foreigner sang their last song, Hot Blooded, two cannons on either side of the stage launched rose pedals into the audience for an ultimate climax to the show.
Before the incredible performance by the band, our video production team had the unique opportunity to meet the lead singer Kelly Hansen and original songwriter/lead guitarist Mick Jones for a private interview. Our film crew brought our Tampa grip truck to set up the lighting which included Kino Flos Diva lights, LED lights and a variety of Tampa video equipment to get the perfect interview look.
Christian Cashmir was director of photography and operated a Canon C100 camera, Bryan Coward filmed with a second Canon C100 while Harold “Pinky” Hood served as grip and also did a bit of camera work on a Canon 5D mark III during the concert. Eric Wolfson from Incite Media produced the video production.
ProFlowers released the promotional video on their official website this week, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Do you want to know what love is? Check out the video below!
Our Tampa video crew was honored to meet the legendary band and extremely grateful for the opportunity to hang out with its members backstage. Our Litewave Media founder, Christian, has always been a huge Foreigner fan and owns their entire music collection on vinyl. He was lucky to get one of his Foreigner records, Headgames, signed by Mick Jones, lead guitar/songwriter.
