Big Wake ~ Live at The Bitter End, NYC

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

Jersey City band Big Wake teamed up with Ironbird Studios once again to produce video for their debut show at The Bitter End.  The 3 camera production was edited and mixed by Angelo Ucciferri at Ironbird Studios.  The legendary venue is NYC’s longest running rock club – and provides multitrack recording services to the bands. This allows us to fine tune the mix during post production and provide a much better soundtrack than a standard soundboard feed.

Enjoy a sample production, and find out more about the band at their website:

Big Wake ~ Sullivan Hall Video Shoot

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

On the heels of their recent album release, Big Wake brought in Ironbird Studios to capture their performance at the legendary Sullivan Hall in Greenwich Village, New York City.  The show was recorded and edited with a 2 cameras.   One of the cameras (Canon HF-G10) was locked off on a wide shot, while the main camera (Sony HXR-NX5u) was operated on a Redrock Micro shoulder mount system.  The setup allowed for a visually dynamic shoot with minimal crew – which is a great option for independent bands on a conservative budget.
