Launched in 2009, Grandcrew was a streaming video startup that broadcast concert videos online and on Facebook.
With the DVD market dwindling (70% loss in value since it’s early 2000 peak of $1billion), Grandcrew wanted to provide a clear, simple solution online that disrupted how concert videos were distributed in the past.
For adoption to move to the mass market, Grandcrew needed a rich and qualitative catalog of concert videos distributed to fans where it mattered most.
We articulated the vision for concert videos online, on Facebook & on connected devices, designing the Grandcrew website and Facebook application (product design).
We recorded nearly 400 concert videos, ranging from 3-cam to 15-camera shoots with multi-track audio. Artists include world renown bands such as De La Soul, Laurent Garnier, Animal Collective, Sebastien Tellier, Common, Carl Craig, Raphael Saadiq, The XX.
