Promotional Video for Recording Festival 2015 at Grouse Lodge Studios
It’s fair to say that Kerbute have had a great summer packed with adventures. One of the highlights for us was being the video team for the first edition of the Recording Festival at Grouse Lodge Studios in Westmeath.
If you haven’t heard of it yet, the Recording Festival is an international competition whereby a musical artist can win two weeks residential recording at the iconic studios. This is a huge prize, and there’s nothing else like it out there.
The competition is the brain child of Filippo Gaetani, a talented and hugely experienced Music Producer and artist. Filippo had been to Grouse Lodge before producing ‘Overhead the Stars’ with Peter Doran. We also worked on that project which is how we came to meet Filippo and wound up collaborating again this summer. The atmosphere and surroundings during his first trip to Grouse Lodge inspired Filippo to create the Recording Festival competition, where winning artists would be given a chance to live, collaborate and record with experienced producers and engineers for two whole weeks in the idyllic setting.
The applicants apply with a single song, which then goes through several rounds of judging. The judges panel are made up of industry experts who between them have worked on some of the greatest musical talents of our time. This years winners we certainly deserving, and proved to be both incredibly talented and fun to be around.
This is the promotional video for the 2015 edition of the competition. It is designed to introduce you to the festival and encourage artists to apply for the next edition. We shot a ton of compelling and fun footage over the two weeks this summer, and that content will be edited and released sometime next year, so watch this space. We really loved shooting it, and we’re sure you’ll love watching it.
Recording Festival are currently accepting submissions for it’s upcoming 2017 edition so get on it and apply here: http://www.recordingfestival.com/ Judging by how great the first one was, the next one is going to be something really special.
Yet more great options for those seeking wedding or party bands in Ireland, our latest video for ‘Top Of The Popz’ – one of Ireland’s most exciting Party Bands.
This was a great shoot which took place in Kildare in December. The band are talented, professional and full of enthusiasm.
For the shoot we rolled out the Movi M10 from Movi.ie yet again, this time running the Sony A7s supplied by Film Equipment Hire, who also provided our lighting and lenses. As with our last few shoots, once everything was set up we were able to work through the various shots and takes quite quickly. We find this helps keep the energy up for the band and the crew.
Big thanks to Cathal Molloy for providing playback during the shoot, as well as keeping a shot log for us – on top of organising the venue etc! A true gent.
We’re looking forward to what 2015 has on the horizon, with plenty of exciting shoots already in the pipe.

Here’s a promotional video we created for Chris Kacik of Green Oak Floors with Create Brand Consultants.
This was a really interesting project to work on. We had to create a video which created trust and confidence in Chris, as well as revealing his very real likability. We worked with Owen Barry and the team at Create to develop the concept and script, and importantly; the right mood. You can see the results for yourself.
We’re very proud of this video, and pleased that both Owen and Chris had us on board, and they themselves were such a joy to work with. We’re looking forward to working on more projects of this nature.
Chris’ new website is now online, you can find it here: greenoakfloors.com He is certainly the man to call if you need to get bespoke flooring done. His work is nothing short of masterly.
The team at Create put together Chris’ new site and his overall branding. They really dedicate themselves to every project and work hard to discover what will work best for a branding, and I think they have done an outstanding job for Chris and Green Oak Floors.
