Broken Social Scene + Owen Pallette @Primavera Sound 2010 (1 of 2)
Your video is loading please wait 5 seconds
By far the biggest highlight for me during the first proper day of the Primavera Sound 2010, Broken Social Scene put on an unforgettable show that had me jumping and dancing from start to finish, playing them live was a dream come true.
It was tight in execution but free-flowing in ideas for approaches, with the added luxury of having Owen Pallette doing a violin accompaniment this presentation had all the collaborative energy you could've imagined or asked for in a BSS performance.
In this video:
-Stars and Sons
-All to All
I apologize for the possible awful audio problems you might encounter during some passages of the video, as I was not using specialized equipment. If the performance hadn't been that awesome I wouldn't be posting it otherwise.
About these "Primavera Sound 2010" video series:
These were all shot with one simple amateurish Panasonic Lumix Camera, while I was enjoying the concert myself. I, as a professional video editor I couldn't help but to do something with it. Now with the raw footage I've tried to turn everything into an engaging experience I can share with everybody else. I hope I got close to pay respect to the amazing performances of the artists shown.
The shortcomings of editing concert footage shot with only one (non-professional) camera are big, even bigger if when I shot these clips I wasn't really thinking of them beyond being a simple memento to look at one day. But now that I've decided to do something else with them I've resorted to thinking of that circumstance not as a problem but rather as a challenge to encourage my drive for creation and resolution.
As a rule of thumb I'm not including video from any other source different from the actual recording, so there's no B-roll. Forcing me to work within these limits to create a coherent piece is stimulating and it can spark different results, some I'm happier with than others, ones more fortunate, others plagued by audio problems but I'm still sharing them all with you.
As a side note I think that in these little videos you can also find a big nod to Vincent Moon's amazing "Take Away Shows" music videos posted on La Blogothèque and their gritty and immediate vibe that I adore so much, and that I somewhat wanted to evoke.
My name's Carlos.
I work as a film editor, but my spare time is also occupied with the pleasure of editing and images creation, hence you'll always find me having little and bigger side projects relating to the moving image and appreciation of the virtues of visual storytelling, whereas is narrative, experimental, musical or documental ; either is me creating them or admiring other's creations. I hope you enjoy my works as much as I enjoy working on them.
If you wanna make a collaboration with me, hire me or suggest ideas for videos you'd like to see me making, don't hesitate to do so, I'm very OPEN to all interesting kinds of ideas from people anywhere in the world!

From time to time I also post non-commercial short films narrative, and documental; or experimental features that I've created or have been an important part of their production and that I'm proud enough to present to the rest of the world.
