We are so very proud of our XI Media team as we celebrate winning 1 Silver Telly Award and 3 Bronze Telly Awards for work we have done this past year. It’s an amazing feeling to have your work recognized, but this also serves as a catalyst to keep pushing our limits and crafting more CRUSH!!!
That’s right folks, our team had the distinct pleasure of working with one of country’s biggest acts / labels to produce an intimate live stream performance for fans of the one and only, Lady Antebellum.
The band’s mgmt were super great to work with and the performance was pretty jaw dropping. Talk about true and REAL talent. The live Facebook stream immediately hit over 250k and hit 500k before the 48 VOD window expired. Such a killer stream to have been a part of.
To say that the Shaky Knees / Beats experience was amazing would be an understatement. Tim Sweetwood and C3 have an amazing festival experience on their hands, and we are so very thankful to be a part of that team. Over the course of two back to back weekends in Atlanta, our team crushed so many amazing artists and met absolutely fantastic people both in the work environment and the festival goers.
We produced all of the on site iMag video for both fests and it was an absolute joy!
The Bulldog DM team and AT&T brought us on to produce a super fun live stream for their “Codes of Culture” event in Atlanta, GA on April 4th…or rather 4/04, highlighting Atlanta’s area code.
The event featured a really thought provoking panel hosted by Killer Mike and performances by 2 Chainz and more.
Team BETO hit us up once again to live stream his Presidential run announcement event outside the Texas State Capitol on March 30th. It was an insanely high energy event to be a part of and it was great to work with the former stage Rep once again.
Our friends at COLLiDE were kind enough to bring our NYC team out to a ton of really rad shows put on by Dr. Martens at Baby’s Alright through the Winter. These shows were so high energy and an absolute BLAST to capture.
Here’s a few bts pics from the final show. Very much hope to pick this program up again at the end of the year.
March in Austin is always an insane time for our team as SXSW rolls into town for two straight weeks of insanity. This year we had an amazing set of clients producing some really awesome events.
Highlights included rocking The Fader Fort once again, capturing highlights from Floodfest, producing two shoots for Concord Music / Loma Vista, live streaming a series of panels for Fender / COLLiDE and more. Here’s a few pics!
Tim Sweetwood and our friends at C3 invited us out to produce all on site video the second year of Innings Fest in Tempe, AZ this past weekend. What an INSANE experience. Our team was on point crushing longtime favorites such as Grouplove, Jimmy Eat World, Band of Horses and the legend himself, Mr. Eddie Vedder!!!!
3 Stages / 19 Bands / 2Full On Talk Shows and a WHOLE LOT OF FUN!
That’s right…we CRUSHED the absolute embodiment of art and musicality, Ms. Janelle Monae!!!! She put on a spectacular show for the AT&T / NBA All-Star Game Pre-Show in Charlotte, NC this past weekend.
It was cold and wet outside, but so hot and fiery inside. Our crew truly loved every moment of crushing this performance. Such a great time!
Dusty and Christa had the distinct pleasure of attending the 2019 GRAMMYs in LA this past weekend. The show was so big and super entertaining. So many artists that we have shot were nominated, it was a proud moment.
XI Media was well represented at the “big show”. Excited to see who makes waves and earns nods next year!
WOW! Just WOW! The Hi How Are You Project and C3 were kind enough to bring our team on to produce the live stream of Hi How Are You Day 2019. The line up was stacked featuring The Flaming Lips, Bob Mould, Built to Spill, The Black Angels, Tameca Jones, Gavin DeGraw, Yo La Tango and Bob Schneider.
The live stream lasted 4.5 hours and it was fantastic! We were able to help raise a ton of money for the organization and shooting in the Moody is always a dream.
Check our “Work” section on the site for clips from The Flaming Lips and Built to Spill, plus a condensed version of the live event will be posted on hihowareyou.org soon!
Our lovely friends at Content Video (VideoStatic) were kind enough to have us out to Philly to capture a killer stop in Jesse McCartney’s “Resolution Tour” at the Fillmore.
First of all, the venue is top notch. What a beautiful looking and sounding venue. The crew were all great and very gracious letting us take over some space back stage.
The show was a lot of fun and the fans were so into it, made the time fly. Stoked to share when these clips hit!
Our crew hit a very cold Minneapolis just after Thanksgiving to capture a two night stint with Hippo Campus performing at The Palace Theater. First night was a live switch / capture, the second night was live streamed via The Current.
The band was great to work with and put on a heck of a show both nights. Super fun times!
Our friends at Anthemic brought our team in to CRUSH all video content for Levi’s as they opened up their new flagship store in the middle of Times Square!
The party was INSANE as we shot performances by De La Sol, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Q-Tip, Nile Rogers and Chic along with appearances by NYC’s best and brightest. It was truly a night to remember.
In what was a wild first for our team, the Chris Jericho camp decided to bring us aboard their 4 day wrestling extravaganza at sea to produce a multi-cam capture and Pay-Per-View event! Our team has dabbled in all types of sports before, but pro wrestling is unlilke anything we have ever crushed!
Our team was super pumped to head back to New Orleans for our second year at Voodoo Fest working for C3!
We produced all of the live stream content for the Toyota Music Den, plus interviews for Yahoo to be incorporated into the live stream AND ancillary branded content for Toyota and Sennheiser. It was an intense and very muddy weekend, yet very rewarding.
Our team made a quick stop in San Antonio for another Beto O’Rourke rally at the Cowboy Dance Hall. Once again the turn out was great and the line up even better. Definitely getting into a groove with these events.
Our crew did the thing one more time at ACL Fest for the second weekend. It was great walking in with most elements already in place and a flow to quickly get back into. We had a few different acts and headliners, which kept us on our toes and overall a thorough crushing ensued.
Dusty had the family stop by which made for a real treat as well. Future directors in the house!
On top of iMag for the weekend, we produced a piece with Google Pixel that made for a very hot and sweaty, but rewarding day. It’s never a bad time when you get to shoot with St. Vincent!
Before the dust even settled at ACL, our crew headed out to Houston to produce another live stream even for Beto O’Rourke in Houston. This rally featured some crazy good performances from Win Butler, Shaky Graves and of course…Bun B!
It was such an honor to do a full fledged crush at our hometown’s biggest music festival!!! We had a blast shooting Manchester Orchestra, Nelly, Sylvan Esso, The Breeders and so many more. Can’t wait for Weekend 2!!!
