AfterLive Media

 

AfterLive media is a startup of DU 4th year student Hunter Saillen. The concept revovles around a community sharing photos and videos of concerts they’ve attended so people can always relive their favorite moments. Almost like watching the highlights of your favorite sport. Through the use of super hi tech, hi def camera’s they aim to give an awesomely detailed and beautiful account of all the shows they attend.

The shoot and concert were truly a unique and sublime experience but the hard work really showed the next day when they produced and edited all the content for the site.
