Hello Ladies and Gents! We are three lasses from Brighton; Corrine (the sassy Blonde), Elizabeth (the sultry brunnette) and Nastazia (the fiery redhead) and together we make up vocal harmony trio ‘The Speakeasy Three’.
We gained the accompaniment of the best swing jazz band in Brighton ‘The Swing Ninjas’ along with our fantastic musicians to collaborate on an amazing track by Ella Fitzgerald, called ‘When I Get Low I Get High’.We are filming on December 2nd at the Proud Ballroom formerly the Hanbury ballroom, a venue which has finally fulfilled its potential as performance venue. The music video will be very much a performance based one, centred around the collaborating groups but also focusing on the 20 or so lindy hoppers and jive dancers taking part, not to mention the 80 or so extras on top of that.Production wise, we’ve already secured all equipment, venue is paid for, make up, hair, costume and art dept is all sorted as well, so things are progressing well. We are shooting on motion picture cameras (Sony F3 and FS700) and we’ll be employing industry standard grip equipment to allow us a truly cinematic feel (think track and dollies and cranes).What do we need from you?
With the venue secured and equipment already sourced, most of the big overheads are covered, but with over 100 extras and crew not to mention the band shooting for 12 hours, we are worried about people running on empty. Because of all the hard work put in and no money being exchanged between anyone we want everyone to be well fed and at the very least cover their expenses as we feel its the least we can do. We dont expect to feed everyone breakfast, lunch and dinner, but a hot meal and a beer at the end of the day will go a long way!
