    We did a concert like that in September but had extracts from the film we played.

    As we did a BRASS AT THE MOVIES CONCERT, it goes down really well .:-D
    So the best of luck with your concert:)

    Good luck with your concert!

    Last year we played music from the film E.T. Not an arrangement of bits and pieces, but an integral part of a few minutes (the part were the children go of into the sky on their bikes). So our conductor got the idea to play this music live with the movie projected to the back. During the rehearsals, it went wrong every time, until our conductor noticed that there was actually 1 bar missing from the arrangement :)

    How did you manage to get the films projected? Did you use DVD players and big screen projection system?

    In view of the on going discussion about copying music and copyright presumably the playing of DVD/videos of films in public halls is also illegal. How does this work on band coaches is that also classed as a public playing?

    There was a projection system available in the concert hall, I think. There also was a big screen on the back of the stage.

    We've just had some information through about a licence that is available for those wishing to show films either as background or for organised groups. Having read it, although as a worship centre making no charge we would qualify, it doesn't seem quite to fit the bill as sometimes we may wish only to show a couple of scenes, whereas the document stipulates that films may not be cut or altered. It's an area I'm still looking at, and either way the responsibility would seem to rest with the owners of the premises.

    Peter it would be nice to know if there is a legal option to show part of a film to run alongside a band playing. There are loads of excellent band arrangements of film music and from a visual point a band is not that interesting to look at.

    The short cinema adverts that come on the DVD's could provide a brilliant back drop to play the music against. These of course are made to persuade people to go and see the film (money for the producers) how many more might want to buy the DVD after hearing a band playing the theme music along with them?

    We're cleared to use it all cos they are all original shots for ease(old war post cards for 1914, pictures I took in NY for 'Manhattan Skyline' when I was there with YABB 3 yrs ago:) )... Apparently there was problems with 'Feather Theme' and 'Music Of The Night' so we wont be doing them:-(

    As for the technical questions... I dont know. Im leaving all that to my Uncle(who has previously done this sort of work with many Salvation Army bands including the International Staff Band).

    Should be a good night :)

    Just a quick thank you to everyone who wished the band good luck for the concert! It went really well and I knew the slides would add to the music but not as much as they did! It was great! Thanks guys...
