Acadiana Open Channel along with lots of volunteers are making sure Festival International lasts forever.
AOC will be back at LUS Scène Internationale this year. Their crew will be recording the live performances, displaying them on screens during the show and re-playing them later on the air.
Each year they recruit volunteers to help with video production for the festival.
It’s no easy task and requires dozens of volunteers, who put in countless hours to make it happen.
“We’re going to probably have about 40 volunteers this year,” Ed Bowie with AOC media management said.
Bowie says it’s a way to enjoy what’s happening now and for years to come.
“The value of the archive what we have, I can’t even calculate,” Bowie said. “I think one of the things I was excited to find was of Sonny Landreth and Chubby Carrier playing together when they were both almost kids. It was back in ’92 or ’93 . That stuff is going to have legendary value. ”
