Tell My Mother I Miss Her So
Jon Salvia …………………… Camera & Producer
Chris Hartman ……………. Camera & Sound
Peter Salvia ……………….. Cuts Color Compression
As far as I know this is the only recording of this song anywhere on the internets as either audio or video. This is our best guess as the title. Alternate title could be Distant Lands but we went with Tell My Mother for good measure.
So my 40min DVCam tape spools out but the crowd wants more from Ryan. For his encore he drops this diddy, which he lets us know he hasn’t recorded yet and will be on his new record (wow!).
I decided to do a split screen of Chris running through the green room and then the crowd. Trying to add as much of a documentary element to these live performances as we can.
Truth be told I was really frustrated with the production of this performance. The wait staff kept walking in front of my camera and at one point people in the audience asked me to move out of their way. The Ram’s Head in Annapolis only holds about 150 people and I guess it’s a testament to Ryan’s fans that they packed it to the brim. Simply put there was no breathing room for me and my hand held PD150.
But I couldn’t be happier with how these clips turned out. Heads walking past the camera adds to the raw feeling of the show and to the energy of some of the cuts. Chris did an unbelievable job monitoring the house sound and shooting with his GL2 simultaneously. As hand held camera number three he single handedly saved the show. Thanks Chris!
And another round of thanks to Bob Waugh, Rob Timm, and Alex Crotright from 103WRNR for making this show happen. IMHO this is the best Private Artist Showcase to date.
