AC/DC, Coldplay, The Rolling Stones, Robbie Williams, Metallica, David Gilmour, Duran Duran, Placebo, Dixie Chicks, Zipperface, Beyoncé, Björk… You name them, James Tonkin has worked with them. In this extensive interview, he talks about the gear he takes on the road to shoot and edit concerts of the world’s greatest bands, and about his new high-end post house in London.

Near-live broadcast editing is one of the craziest jobs in our business. You constantly work under high pressure, ingesting, organizing, editing and finishing you program while the event is still going on. And your edit needs to be ready to air as quickly as possible while you have to comply with the highest quality standards. This requires a well-oiled team of very experienced people using hardware and software that is both fast and absolutely reliable. Because there are no excuses.
