You’d hope the first job of the year would be gentle on you and relaxing not a one shot wonder with 11/12 lighting states, 3 sets, 120+ lights and just one day to do it all in and then 4 days to Sound mix, Grade and Deliver the thing.
But such is the team, shit got done.
A huge thank you to @Pa_Salieu and his team at September management - great talent and kept nailing those takes.
@tawbox (Bronski X Amber) hats off for getting such a great concept together, such a pleasure to work with and thanks for having me and throwing me head first back into the live (ish) world - I’ve missed the place.
Finally got to work @AlexJamin and what a pleasure - that’s some beautiful highly technical work right there - big up to Gaffer @elliot_be (Elliot Beach) as well for managing the complex lighting setup so well!
Massive thanks to Production designer @sarah.asmail - who I didn’t even realise had done the Prod design for PA’s album cover! Who said men don’t have intuition? But yeah, thanks to the Universe for sorting that out, Sarah you’re a legend thank you for all the amazing work!
Also massive thanks to Seb Joly on the Trinity who worked tirelessly and managed to go in through a car window without a bump during any recorded takes… there were over 20.
Also Mikiel who danced his ass off in that Kankurang outfit made by hand by the amazing @Kate_Tarbor… every single hair…
Big up to all the rest of the crew
