Private Reunion Party for TV Show. Need 1 Video person

  • December 14, 2012 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

....If you say Soul Train, Americans of a certain generation and fans of soul and funk anywhere will think of funky dancers with big ’fros and hot threads, Don Cornelius’ flamboyantly fashionable suits and baritone voice, the animated train,

Soul Train’s cultural impact was tremendous. The first nationally
syndicated black music show, it was owned by a black man (presenter Cornelius), staffed mostly by black people, sponsored by a black company selling black hair products, and featured black artists who did not often feature on TV. Socially, Soul Train was TV’s raised fist of black consciousness. Culturally, Soul Train helped popularise dances, fashion and hair.

      Both, I have a Canon 5D Mark II that does HD video/stills, and a digital sound recorder with mic. Appreciate if you could let me know the lighting situation on the video - are we going to need to be portable (I have a LED hotshoe light that uses batteries), or bring continuous lights to be set up in our own areas (needs electrical outlets).

    Used to be a hoot to switch back and forth from American Bandstand and Soul Train to watch the quality of dancing. Let's just say those poor folks on AB looked pitiful. I loved Cornelius and was so sad when he passed. My comment at the time was that Jesus had Dick Clark up there but he couldn't stand the dancing in heaven so he asked for Dornelius's help.
