Wiggle Puppy Captures Flavor for New Phish FilmUses both 24P HD and MiniDV formats to film “IT” festival (July 23, 2004)
Wiggle Puppy Productions, a Chicago based production company, headed by Director Mark Krieglstein and Producer Sara Yule, was hired last summer by the band Phish to film a variety of documentary and concert footage at “IT”, their two-day festival in Limestone, Maine. Using both 24P High-Definition and MiniDV formats, the camera team captured an array of interesting scenes from backstage production to fan interactions.
“The highlight of the shoot was definitely the tower set,” says Krieglstein, referring to filming the band playing a surprise set atop the Loring Air Force Base control tower. “There is nothing more exhilarating then being a hundred feet in the air trapped between the energy of 60,000 fans and Phish. It’s without a doubt some of our best work.”
“IT: A Phish Concert Special” premieres August 2 on PBS. It will be broadcast in HD and 5.1 surround sound where available.
