Garth Brooks at the Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert
Nashville, TN (July 25, 2013)—Nashville-based mobile TV production company TNDV donated its talent, time and equipment to capture audio from Toby Keith's Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert.
The all-day festival-held July 6 at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, OK-featured non-stop performances by a lineup that included Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood, Sammy Hagar, Ronnie Dunn and Mel Tillis.
At the request of long-time client High Five Entertainment, an Emmy Award-winning video production company in Nashville, TNDV provided its new audio truck Vibration for audio multi-tracking and music mixing. TNDV donated its talent, time, and equipment to the cause of helping victims of the May 2013 tornadoes that struck the Moore, OK area.
"It was an honor and pleasure to be associated with this momentous benefit concert," said Nic Dugger, TNDV's owner. "This was also the first project of significance for Vibration and it performed exceptionally well under very demanding circumstances. Since the eight-hour concert came together in a relatively short time, our crew had to make swift creative and technical decisions and respond on-the-fly as the fast-paced production unfolded."
The TNDV crew included Nic Dugger, who served as on-site technical manager; Adam Ellis, TNDV engineer-in-charge of Vibration; and Mills Logan, a freelance audio mixer and recording engineer who has worked closely with Toby Keith on all his records and two movie soundtracks since 2005. The crew devoted four days, including set-up and show days, to support their High Five Entertainment clients. Executive producers Edie Lynn Hoback and Martin Fischer, and production coordinators Ashlee Locke and Catherine Melvin represented High Five on-site.
