What are the campfire sessions?

The Campfire Sessions is the name of a professional music video documentary about ten singer-songwriters from a specific region. The first edition is "The Mountain Rocky edition" and is situated at the foot of the Canadian Rockies near Hinton - Jasper.

Completely central is the music of the singer songwriters. The artists come together for four days in a special place in the open air where they play at night, acoustic and unplugged  their very best songs for a selected live audience. It all takes place around the necessary campfire. The choice of performers is based on the variety and music genre, gender, age and ethnic background. This way we secure a beautiful and varied music documentary that serves the region. For the guests we create a luxury setting of tables and chairs. The environment of the Rockies plays an important role as a natural backdrop.

The Campfire Sessions is made possible by the fans of the artists. Through a crowdfunding campaign they can support their idol by ordering products in advance such as downloads of video and music, but also the physical product such as DVD, Blu-Ray and CD. There are also tickets to attend the video recordings as public. These tickets are in a very limited edition available as Passe Partout VIP tickets. A VIP ticket takes care and accommodated the guests for four days, and day tickets for one day to attend the sessions.

The documentary is technically in a very professional way recorded by multiple cameras in HD quality. After the four days of The Campfire Sessions all the footage will be assembled into a cool documentary, released on streaming video, DVD, BluRay, and for instance on double CD album. The orders are distributed to the fans and the business community who ensured by the crowdfunding perks that this documentary can be made.

Technology and staff.

This documentary is recorded on a very high and television standard in High Definition. This means that there will be filmed in HD with five fixed cameras with crew, supplemented by a crane (large arm with camera) and a drone with HD camera. The video recordings will be under the guidance of a visual director. Furthermore we are working with audio engineers serving the sound for the audience, a technician and audio producer for the sound recordings for the DVD, BluRay and CD, a lighting technician for the lighting of the shooting location. There are volunteers working for the public support during the video shootings and volunteers for the support during the day program. There are people to secure the safety around the site and the important campfire.

After all recordings have been taken, the footage will be processed into a 90-minute music documentary - at that time more than 120 hours of video and 15 hours of audio.

The music producer and audio technician will be approximately three weeks working on the audio productions for CD and DvD. The CD audio and video mixes are different mixes. After this the video producer and engineer start to work on the footage. In about a month's time they will be ready with the video. Audio and video are merged, and where necessary, the footage and / or sound will be adjusted to each other.
