In this video we use the metaphor of spokes on a wagon wheel to explain all the different pieces that must be put into place in order to have a chance at a successful music career.
At the beginning of the series, we visited Austin and met up with some giants of Texas and Americana music. You'll see snippets of those conversations here. We'll get more in depth with these interviews in later videos.
Troubadours featured in this segment include Michael Martin Murphey, Sonny Throckmorton, Mando Saenz, and Michael Tolcher.
This is part of a documentary series that I worked on as a photographer, videographer and social media strategist. On the show we went behind the scenes & follow Texas-based singer-songwriters living the Troubadour life.
While I was part of the production team for the entire run of the show, I was just one of a half dozen or so videographers who contributed. A note to my fellow internet content creators: one particularly interesting element of this documentary is the gear I used as one of the videographers on the show. For all the content I currently shoot, I use a variety of enthusiast level cameras from GoPros to Canon Point & Shoots to Fujifilm mirrorless cameras. You can see all the current gear I use here.
The primary cameras I used on this shoot were Canon 7D DSLRs. Look at this episode and leave a comment about what you think about the overall production quality of this piece with the 7D and GoPros mixed into shots from the other videographers using professional cinema cameras.
