For the past few years, Jazmine Sullivan’s dulcet-toned vocals has been taking the R&B world by storm, winning Grammys and lending her voice to projects such as the Oscar-nominated Tick…Tick…Boom! But before she was known as the powerhouse performer she is today, Sullivan’s childhood in Philadelphia helped inform her future artistry – something she looks back on in her new Audible original, The Art of Confessing. Written and conceived by Sullivan, Confessing is a journey of confessional R&B through a female lens.
For the project, Atlantic’s local Philly crew, consisting of a field producer, two camera operators, a gaffer, a sound op, and a PA, shot a sit-down interview and Q&A session with Sullivan at World Cafe Live, all on 2x Sony FX9 cameras in glorious 4K. Afterward our crew captured footage of Sullivan during a live show. Our camera operators worked under the direction of an on-location Audible producer that communicated with us over IFBs, and oversaw what was being filmed over wireless video feeds we provided.
