Videoing at events.

I thought I was in Jessops.  Some guy had set up his equipment all around the dance floor.  Remote flashguns going off left, right and Chelsea.  It was like the blitz. 

I'm assuming these people get permission from the event organiser and / or venue management, but is everybody giving their tacit consent to be photographed and then posted all over social media by the fact they've paid their entry fee?

Brilliant description! I've experienced something similar myself, could be a disaster if anyone had epilepsy (and a friend of mine has!).

I can't see how you could stop it being posted now, the genie is so out of the bottle; YouTube and FaceBook have been reluctant to take action on even very serious posts. The organisers or promoters can't do much other than ban people after the event but they're not going to.

The promotion involved with the night or the venue owner can actually ban any recording of any description so as to make it illegal in that particular venue on any particular day or night and ask anyone to delete any such recording and remove them from the premises

Went to a soul night recently and some strange individual set his camera up on a table to film himself dancing.  The worst part about it, he couldn't dance to save himself.

Maybe that was the point - perhaps he was filming himself so he could see where he was going wrong and improve?!😂

Has anyone ever done that? Would be a very hard one to implement.

Shouldnt have to avoid the lens . I have politely asked not to be on photos vids etc at venues and it has upset a few . What these ameteur David Baileys need to realise is that we are not all self obsesed fame whores who love the attention and why should their hobby intrude on my enjoyment .

Really glad that Jud bloke has stopped just a pity that he didnt stop because he realised he was a nusiance . 

 

THIS! ^^^^^ - THANK YOU Mark S - saved me from typing word for word

The damage was allegedly done when they allowed the cameras in to the casino.  This England.  The numerous documentaries.  The film's. The adverts. You tube.  Camera phones are just the latest in a series of recordings

Maybe - But that exposure also bought some 'stayers' to our Scene :wink:

At most of the soul night I go to, there is always someone who will want to take pics. A lot will take photos of the group they are with & some will also go round the room & take pics of everyone. I think that's fine, just so long as they ask first - then if you give permission for your pic to be taken, you have to accept that it could pop up anywhere - Facebook - Soul Source - anywhere at all. Permission first is the key. If you don't want your pic taking, it's probably easier just to head to the bar/toilet/dance floor/best mate that you just spotted at the other end of the room  etc when you see the camera heading in your direction - avoid the situation altogether.

Not just a Northern thing though is it , it is everywhere, football grounds etc ,pubs , people seem to need a visual reminder of every occasion .  

Is it ??..must admit to not seeing much 'videoing'..but then I ;m not looking for it. I suppose its the heightened love of the social..nowadays... matching or even overtaking the love of the music

 

I'm still not sure it's 'cool' seeing granny and grandad cavorting at the local WMC ...... but hey maybe there are other reasons..

This is the bit I dont get why should I have to avoid the situation ? Could end up spending the whole night avoiding the knob with the camera .

Quite agree with you there Mark, but they normally only go round the room once so I don't find it too bad to dodge the cameras. Never been one for having my pic taken

You're right - And they miss the actual 'live' experience.

You may have meant pictures, but look at most live concerts nowadays, there's a 'herd' of tablets / phones being held up filming it, which I think takes something away from the whole experience.

I can understand a one off recording of an event and thankfully there's a bit footage of events that offset the idea that everyone dressed and danced in only one style ( Wigan doc). But mostly the video/camera recording is not about creating a document of time and place anymore it's more about a performance for the camera and folks aren't living in the moment of the record anymore but more interested in the resulting YouTube video.

I remember my mate getting a video camera back in the 80's - it was the size of a small fridge and weighed a ton, videotape was expensive too so we never did much filming, mainly made bad "experimental" films; wouldn't have dreamt of taking it anywhere because it cost a fortune and was so heavy. Now of course everyone has a "free" one in their pockets. Certainly with my kids posting video is taking over from photos as technology gets faster, so there's only going to be more and more and more of it.
