Our Tampa video production company had the opportunity to work with some amazing musicians this year. We filmed multi-Grammy award-winning jazz pianist Chick Corea last April for a live multi-cast and this month we had the incredible opportunity to film Justin Hayward lead singer of legendary classic rock band The Moody Blues for a PBS special. The special will be televised in the next few months. The project was directed by LA based documentary filmmaker and musician David Minasian, who came to Litewave Media for his Tampa video crew and Production Coordinating.
He hired Litewave Media’s founder Christian Cashmir to coordinate the shoot and film, and also rented 5 of our Panasonic P2 camera packages, lighting and grip truck, and audio equipment. Our Tampa film crew and our Tampa grip truck arrived early in the morning to the location and began setting up for the event.
We also brought our camera jib to get unique angles of the concert performance. Christian Cashmir was jib and camera operator, Kenny Strawn was also a camera operator and Harold “Pinky” Hood was Grip for the production.
The performance took place at the Historic Capitol Theater in Clearwater. Tickets for the show were sold out and the venue was completely packed. People from all over Florida came to Clearwater to watch the music legend play all their greatest hits including Nights in White Satin, Tuesday Afternoon, Your Wildest Dreams and more.
After the amazing performance by the band, our Litewave Media team had the unique opportunity to meet the lead singer of The Moody Blues, Justin Hayward, for a private interview. Justin talked about the history of the band, how they wrote their songs, and his solo career.
Litewave Media founder Christian Cashmir says, “I remember listening to Moody Blues records as a kid on my Dad’s record player. It was quite an honor to meet Justin Hayward and film this concert.” Justin is currently on tour around the country, and we hope to have the opportunity to see him again live soon!
