How to make a half million hits YouTube video.

Posted by Phil On May - 31 - 2012

Now Everybody Stand In Line by L&O Featuring Valentine & Dretonio is now on ITunes, Amazon and HMV and the video has had probably 750,000 hits in its various different versions.

So it all started on a local football pitch and we ended up being interviewed by ITV News crew outside the Emirates Stadium and number one in the US dance charts.

Here’s a “behind the scenes doco” of the football, studio recordings, video shoot and news coverage of Now Everybody Stand In Line Football Anthem by L&O. + preview of new Ibiza mix.

Filmed in River Studios, Meadow Farm Studio and Liquid night club.
featuring producer/football manager Gary Louca, singers Dretonio, Valentine, Chris Todd and dance crew & sound engineer Olli Daddarn
Camera crew Mike Peel, Jude Peel and Robin Wheeler.

The music video was all shot on a Panasonic GH2 with Pentax Super Takumar 1.7 lens and the Panasonic 14-140 zoom lens.

The making of video was mostly shot on a little Pansonic TZ7 camera.


After all day in the studio and working with the choreographer for Gary’s dance track, then onto a 3 hour final rehearsal with En Masse with a live band.

I’m working out camera shots for their come back concert.

High adrenaline.
Great to see Gareth singing again!

A recent session filming at the new River Studios.  Here’s a few quick grabs from the video rushes.  Everyone seems very happy ..and I don’t think it’s my jokes they are laughing at.  It must be the ambience




..and here’s one of the bands in the beautiful rehearsal rooms.





and the foyer area …with one of my video recordings playing.
