What is Fan Footage all about?

    Connecting bands, fans and consumer brands. Our video platform allows bands to turn the whole crowd at a concert into their own passionate video crew. By automatically syncing these fan-shot videos with artist-approved live audio recordings, we can quickly produce engaging broadcast-quality edited video content. It’s also a great solution to the issue of fan-filming: chose one song per show to FanFootage and ask the fans keep their phones and cameras in their pockets for the rest of the show.

    How does it work (for artists/labels, brands, tech partners)?

    1. Identify live event opportunity and contact FanFootage with details (one song per show works best) 2. Arrange live audio recording & mixing 3. Pre-show messaging to fans via Social Media: “We’re going to make a live video at tomorrow night’s show so bring your cameras...!” 4. At-show fan activation (on-stage artist shout-out, digital displays, on site marketing) 5. Post-show drive for video uploads: “Upload your video by 6pm tomorrow to win / be a part of the edited video…” 6. Go live with approved fan videos 7. Broadcast-quality content can be edited from best of fan videos by FanFootage team or 3rd party video editor

    Where can I find an online demo to get a sense for what the fan would experience?

    This Bon Jovi video was compiled from the 450+ videos their fans filmed & uploaded of “Wanted Dead or Alive” in Hyde Park London in July 2013. Watching it you can see the personal viewpoints of the fans at the show, and how much more powerful and engaging this authentic fan-sourced video content is. Bon Jovi “Wanted - Dead of Alive” at British Summer Time, London - http://youtu.be/W7oxxOtw71s (LINK TO CHANGE ONCE LOGO UPLOAD IS COMPLETED - Jamie Tanner on this) This Marc Anthony video was edited from fan video uploads of his performance in Los Angeles in September 2013. It captures the excitement and energy of the song and also how the fans responded creatively to being asked to document the performance themselves.
