Capturing the Moment - Live @ NME venues- Manchester & London

Here at FMS we give bands the opportunity to play some of the best live venues with a great sound, lights and atmosphere.

Many bookers and fans now use Youtube and other on-line platforms to keep up to date with what bands are currently up to. 
For many venues, promoters and booking agents in our sector there is a disappointing array of mobile phone footage or amateur video, which does little justice to the actual performance.
Since 2005, FMS has championed providing top quality photo shoots of all our gigs. and has worked with a large range of up and coming young live photographers who have produced some dazzling results.   
However in 2011 we piloted a scheme to record live at the 100 Club London using an external 24 channel digital feed from the live desk then mixed after the shows and edited with the footage from Full HD multi camera shoots. - The promo below gives some highlights and the finished film of one full song from each band is released over the next seven days
Promo features, The screening, Hans Commission, James Page and Violet Bones.
The short video promo above was shot at the world famous 100 club and we went for a retro film look that matched the provenance and history of the place- Films are HD quality and is formatted for easy embedding within your own web-site. The live recordings can also be heard here on sound cloud and are released December 17th. 
Coming Soon 
August 18th we took over this world famous venue and captured five bands, Suzuki Method, No Flash, Rawcuss, China White and Matt Gray at the world famous Manchester venue that has been totally refurbished to amazing technical standards whilst totally retaining the spirit of this great venue. 
The whole of each set and three hours of broadcast quality HD, each band 30 minute edited set film was captured, shot on three state of the art remote cameras and with audio mixed from multi-track, ideal for Youtube and Vimeo channels (if requested) and the potential for future VOD sales through the forthcoming IPTV formats, and is formatted for easy embedding within your own web-site.
