So I am going to do this Nokia thing at a festival this weekend …. I have not met with them yet, but I guess what I (and others) are suppose to do is use some new Nokia phone and go thru the day taking pics of some things at the venue …. The some things is what I am asking about (they are snotty and call it content) … so if you were to watch a video and or pictures from a concert (a film in this case), what would you like to see … that is what Nokia is asking me to ask “the Coachella board” … what do you want to see in a festival film?… ok, I know tits, but besides that …. Any interesting ideas or uninteresting ideas would be greatly appreciated … this is this Saturday, so let me know as soon as you can … tnx as usual ...x****

Going through the coachella photos my favorites were the ones of the people completely feeling the music. staring up at the stage and the look of pure satisfaction and happiness on their faces. Because I knew how I felt and to see so many others feeling the same way 4 months later and reminding me of the feelings I had at the time is always fabulous.

I go to film festivals in Palm Springs a lot. I like humor, good sound, brevity, and originality. Two of my fav's this year were a documentary about George Michael & a mocumentary about the guy who works with Porto-Potties at festivals.

If there are going to be tits, make them man tits.

Personally, I love crowd shots. When a crowd is reacting to a band, I almost find it more interesting to watch the crowd than the band. Obviously, the band needs to be shot as well, but I think more videos should include crowd footage.
Also, I like in festival films where they just walk around and talk to the concert goers, or when they talk to the musicians about the festival itself.

This was semi explained to me once but basically I was given a link to another thread and decided it was too much work to figure out.

Back on topic, I say the people as well. Who needs more pics of the bands from far away. Leave that to the pros. Take people shots and anything interesting or out of the ordinary.

Pics that accentuate the beauty off the surroundings

People who are loaded but cognisent enough to see that they are having a good time

Shots from the right, left or center stage, behind the band or DJ to see people's reactions

Pieces of art

Something indicative of the region, people or food (Voodoo=crawfish pie or mullets)

Have fun!!!

shucks. i just say keep you eyes open for all possibilities and hopefully you can make your camera do what it needs to at the given time. Give the thing a practice run and be aware of the limitations so you can stock up on extra batteries and memory cards.

In 2006, when i got my first photo pass, i was in a situation where i had to use a phone with a camera. (http://renegademartian.buzznet.com/user/journal/22110/coachella-day-2-agony-ectasy/)

If you get in other people's pictures, fine. Get in a few of your own if the moment calls for it and you want the memory of your vibe together. Concentrate on the pictures you would like to see yourself (not necessarily with you in them).

Have you gone through the manual and practiced with the device?

Just be smooth. Still and steady as possible for the stills. Still, steady and fluid for your movies. In that story i had the link to above, the camera phone wasn't that impressive, but some interesting pictures came out of it due to the limitations and having to adjust and work around them.

Preferably one with someone using their Nokia phone. From then on, like Algunz said earlier...You'll know the pic to take when you see it. BTW...Since you passed on the room, you really should inquire about VIP or backstage. Or, just tell them you know the famous concert photographer, Ivankay!
