Log: Luckily, we got the permission from the event organizer immediately after we arrived there and set up our equipment. It’s hard to film music. The sound can be really hard to handle when editing. I used another camera this time to make sure that I got a variety shots while still keeping the music clear and consistent. Interviewing people in music event is also difficult because people are unwilling to leave their seat and the background music can be noisy. And the arresting music was really distracting for journalists. I cannot help always filming the performance and the audience. Everything felt insane and interesting. And I got to many footages by doing this.
