The group is hiring their own editor to put the footage together, but here's an unedited excerpt from just one of the cameras. The song is Never Let Me Go by Florence And The Machine.

Also appearing on stage was local street performer Art Paul, plus members of the homeless cooperative newspaper, Street Pulse. All benefits from the video shoot will go to assist the area's homeless.

Equipment Crash

Had a scare today. Robert had the 7D DSLR set up on a tripod preparing for a shoot. He left the room for a moment and when he returned, the camera was laying face down on the ground with the tripod knocked over. The bolts on the tripod sticks have been acting lose lately, and one of them apparently didn't hold.

It fell over and the camera landed lens first on the floor. Luckily, we had a UV filter on the end. It was smashed, but the lens and camera are still fully functioning.

The ultra-violet filter is not an inexpensive brand, but it's a hell of lot cheaper to replace than a new lens.
