Live at the Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover in Lewes [Videos] ]

From the Mumford & Sons Official Website:
Friday 6, September 2013

Earlier on in this summer of 2013, Mumford & Sons rounded up some of their favourite bands and headed down to the United Kingdom’s southern town of Lewes to set up camp for a two day celebration of music, community and local life.

Basking in the rays of some truly glorious English sunshine, the Gentlemen Of The Road Stopover in Lewes marked yet another extremely special moment in what, it’s fair to say, has been an almost unbelievable summer.

It was just so. much. fun; with an overwhelming number of ladies, gentlemen and children, nay to mention one magical dragon (aka ‘Piff The…’), in attendance to catch performances by Vampire Weekend, The Vaccines, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit and many more, as well as sample a taste of Lewes life.

Whether you were there or not, we are pleased to say that you can now catch a glimpse of the band’s live performance at the Stopover via this new series of videos.

Much love,

Filming “Babel”: Behind the Scenes

Babel is a fantastic example of “Twinning”. Filmed with the Graphlite motion control camera crane on an Red Epic-M Monochrome, Director Sam Jones created the illusion of an army of Mumford & Sons band members in a single continuous circular shot. To achieve this effect, Motion Control Operator, Mike Leben first created a single camera move, consisting of a 720 degree swing on the Graphlite arm and a 24 foot dolly move. This created a large oval move that after being traveled twice by the Graphlite, ended in a long dolly back and zoom out, revealing the enormity of the room. After this move was created, it was filmed in approximately 25 smaller passes, with the band being reset between each take. The precise repeatabilty of the Graphlite allowed these multiple takes to be edited into a seemingly endless single shot featuring dozens of band members in the same room. Because the Band had a limited time to shoot the video, the move was programmed on the first day, using cardboard stand-ins, then the whole video was shot in one, relatively short shoot day. The crew and band were fantastic, and even under very demanding time constraints, it was an extremely relaxed and enjoyable shoot day.

The video was filmed in the abandoned Oakland Central Station, which is an extraordinarily beautiful location and offered great photographic opportunities.
