From keen and green to slick and professional

Thanks to a partnership with production company The Deck, School of Digital Media and Infocomm Technology students from Singapore Polytechnic (SP) got a taste of live music production at Music Matters Live 2012, part of the All That Matters Music and Digital Conference in Singapore.
Held at Clark Quay from 24 to 26 May, the event was dubbed as Asia’s celebration of ‘live’ music and featured emerging and established bands from Asia and the world. With YouTube supporting the event as an Official Festival Broadcast Partner, students got to see their work broadcasted live via webcast on YouTube.
Visiting VIPs from big industry players such as Discovery Channel, MTV, YouTube, Google and many more poured on praise as they watched SP students from the Diploma in Visual Effects and Motion Graphics (DVEMG) drive the five-camera setup under the guidance of Producer Jon Moore of The Deck, SP lecturer Nicholas Chu, Streaming Director John Wigglesworth and Senior Cameraman Chris Dickinson.
Second-year DVEMG student Shawn Ang shared his experience after the first day of work on the DVEMG blog, “Kudos to our cameramen who were sweating it out in the crowd, in a battle with photographers and the media, as well as struggling with crazy fans out there to capture the Korean performers, the main event for the night.”
A key part of the production also included a split-track audio recording and dedicated broadcast mix of the performances, handled by SP’s Diploma in Music and Audio Technology (DMAT) students and supervised by lecturer Geoffrey Low.
“The experience was great. I got first hand insight into the working environment of my potential future. I got to see how the broadcasting side of major music festival works. I also got to work with people from DVEMG, which I enjoyed. The whole thing was a great insight into what I might possibly be doing in ten years from now, quipped DMAT student, Bryan Tsao.
SP students were also credited in the Music Matters Live press release which said, “A big shout out goes to the students of Singapore Polytechnic for their assistance in production – a first for Music Matters Live!”
Special thank you to SP students at 0:20
