One of our longest standing client relationships is that of Official Videographers for the University of Illinois Marching Illini. FPVP has been entrusted with producing the season highlights and shows for the “nation’s premier college marching band” for more than 15 years. It’s a fall labor of love, and boy do we love the Marching Illini! We have traveled with the band around the world, including trips to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in New York City, and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin, Ireland. And our annual highlights DVD also includes performances at Soldier Field, Navy Pier, and select other locations around the state.
Each Homecoming, we produce a special highlight DVD available for all returning MI alumni. This disc includes parade highlights, pep rally, and game day performances from pregame and halftime.
In addition to capturing all the color and pageantry of the Illinois game day experience, we also shoot the Marching Illini’s annual “Live in Concert” show. This show highlights all the very best music that the MI is noted for, and we record it with multiple cameras and microphones. It’s a great keepsake that showcases all the band sections.
