Rendezvous Music | Branding Film
Rendezvous Music is a wedding and event band in Chicago. We first received the call from Rendezvous Music a few years ago. At the time, we filmed a wedding at Union Station in Chicago; where their band performed. They ended up seeing the trailer we edited from that wedding and loved our filmmaking style. During our initial conversation, we talked about the possibility of producing a branding film for their company…a video that would show potential clients what it’s like to an experience an event with the band performing.
Over the course of the next few years, we followed Rendezvous Music’s two bands: Rendezvous Band and Greenlight while they performed at Trump International Hotel, The Field Museum, and The Museum of Science and Industry.
We were able to get some really nice angles of the band with the 25′ jib/camera crane in those large venues. One of the tricky parts about this production was music. We wanted to show the band performing in several different venues; all while keeping the same music track throughout the video. So, we worked with Rendezvous to create a custom music score with their band singing and performing, which reflected the video’s message and company branding.
We also interviewed the band’s leader, Toni DiDonato, and included soundbites from that interview in the final branding film!
