About this project

In late 2016, I had the honour of producing a complete concert for the inimitable Paul Kelly and his collaborator Charlie Owen. As part of their ‘Death’s Dateless Night’ tour, they chose St John’s Cathedral in Brisbane to capture two nights of performance, which I edited into 24 individual songs.

This was shot with four cameras (three operated, one autonomous motion control) over two nights, which I combined into a single edit for each song, giving me the ability to stretch the coverage further than the limited camera positions would otherwise provide. As the concerts were packed to capacity, it was crucial the camera equipment not impede the patrons’ experiences.
