If you were in Athens, OH a few weeks ago for #11Fest getting rowdy in true Bobcat fashion, it’s likely you’re still in need of a Spanish Pause. It’s been several weeks since the festival, but I can STILL feel my liver battling the day’s abuse. Thousands descended on this southeast Ohio bubble for one of the biggest and fastest growing music festivals in the region: #11Fest, featuring Kendrick Lamar and Steve Aoki… and it was insane! M.A.A.D. Field insane. You only need the left behind and mud-caked shirts and shoes at the end of the night for reference as to how hard people went.
For CreMedia Productions, an Athens-based video production company though, 11Fest was an opportunity to go all out in a different, less party-centric way. With new camera equipment and the largest crew yet assembled, CreMedia faced challenges like dodging airborne beer cans and navigating through throngs of revelers… not altogether NEW challenges, but definitely taken to a new level with the increasing popularity of the #Fest series.
The expanded CreMedia crew, which included friends of CreMs and others willing to lend a hand throughout the day, made this years effort one to be proud of. With 6 DSLRs rolling, a handful of Heros and a RED ONE at the end of a 24-foot crane, it’s safe to say that things turned out exceptionally gnarly.
Don’t worry festers, CreMedia has the video you need to fill in the gaps of your foggy 11Fest memory! If you haven’t already, peep the official 11 Fest video here and be sure to share. And watch it a second time too if you have to. Maybe you’ll be able to spot yourself and figure out just what the hell you were doin’ all day!
While some of my shots made it into the CreMs #11Fest edit, I spent most of my time chasing Sebas “The Equalizer” around for a behind-the-steeze video…
