Roadies are an essential part of any band, and a roadieographer is a member of the group who is ultimately responsible for content creation, marketing, and storytelling. Now there is a kit for them!
Professional audio innovators Saramonic and world renown stabilization company Benro (both distributed by MAC Group) announced the availability of the Roadieographer Content Creation Series, presented as the world’s first complete content creation kits for musicians and bands. Or, to the content creator rersponsible for producing all the video and photographic materials used to promote a band, be it big or small.
Designed for solo artists, musicians, and bands, the Roadieographer Content Creation Series is available in 3 levels of kits that provide all of the tools needed for consistent professional content creation in audio, video, and photography. A Roadieographer plays in important part in turning a band or an artist into a brand, and that’s why large acts usually have teams of people constantly bombarding social media and websites with photos, videos, stories, and BTS footage. Those teams are not free, and those types of marketing campaigns can become expensive very quickly.
Compatible with both camera or smartphone
The Roadieographer Collection, while also usable big big outfits, appears to help smaller teams get their work done. The three kits available give the Roadieographer the tools needed to constantly and consistently create and market content. They and their loyal friends can now reach the furthest corners of the earth with professional looking content with little to no budget.
All kits can be utilized with either camera or smartphone setups, meaning you don’t necessarily need to have a camera to get the best results. A modern smartphone will suffice to create content. The kits provide the tools to help them stream, record, vlog, take photos, capture audio and more.
All of the kits start with a professional Benro Tourist Photo/Video Backpack, which are said to be “beer and tequila repellent. Water, too.” Padded and secure with foam modular inserts to fit any array, with waist strap and top handle, the backpack has pockets on the outside that stretch and secure tripods, mics stands, cables, etc. The equipment pocket opens from the back for “Subway Security”, and the backpack fits easily under aircraft or bus seat.
