yesterday was musicfest 2005!
i finished sch at 2pm. i can’t believe that i spent so much time from 2pm-5pm thinking about the camera arrangement, checking the cams and the tapes, checking out the PT, checking out the camera in the PA control room, testing out if can capture to laptop directly etc. wah i thought i had a lot of time to waste. thought…i can’t imagine how I actually spent so many hours doing it…thought I had better things to do…
anyway at about 6pm the rush began to set up the 5 cameras in the PT…3 stationary, 1 mobile, and 1 in the PA control room to capture the CCTV. and then some of us have to eat dinner bought by muzz. haha it’s so fun to walk in out freely identified as video crew by our newly printed tags which I did on wed.
and soon it was 7pm n everything started. well went on well except that the laptop using stupid FAT32 had 4GB limit…later intermission I managed to convert the other hard disk to NTFS in order to capture fully the 2nd half. at first was quite worried about the camera control and footage and tapes unaccounted for. but later everything was alright…was sitting on the right side most of the time with joel, yh, yt n hoosy.
matt said he managed to come in through the right PT door, no security lol. but ya he got ticket la so actually it’s alright for him. haha actually i think they welcome crashers…but SC rejected people in school U at first cos they thought it was too formal. but too many people in sch U (aiya normal school day mah) so they have to let all in.
the performances were not bad. some were funny. some I missed due to busy touching the laptop and camera. sometimes I think i’m not enjoying the concert enough. but nevertheless, it was good. then the guest performance was a 3-person band called Parousia (pronounced as per-ru-sia), which sang 2 songs. they have a super good vocalist, beat all the rest of the performances! haha…at first I did’nt know it was THEM, and then the lyrics and voice rang a bell in my mind, that I borrowed their CD before last time. they are a great local christian band and they sang two new songs which I think impressed many people in the PT.
and then was prize giving…i must say cho is a very good emcee…he was running around stage during one of the band’s performance lol, wonder if it was planned beforehand. though the prize giving a bit messy, in the end ended off with Victorian Anthem…hah sometimes I wonder what if the winner of the solo vocalist can’t sing the anthem…ahem..
