If you haven’t discovered Shoot The Player yet you’re in for a treat. The basic concept is a documentary film crew take a musician, place them in a public location (usually outdoors) and film them singing one of their tracks in one take, regardless of distractions and outside influences. My favourites include Ben Lee, Megan Washington and Bob Evans.

The latest artist to get the Shoot the Player treatment is Sydney folkster Darren Hanlon. Hanlon’s vids were shot over two days while he was recording in Portland, Oregon. Watch them both below or head over to his Shoot the Player site.
