Live TV - operating
Posted 17 April 2010 - 12:11 PM
Due to some technical issues, our wireless didnt work and I ended up having to use a tie line. Which made things rather interesting.
Looking back at the footage, Im still wobbly and floaty in certain areas. And on some occasions, being to close to the stage and having an MC who liked to walk back and forth made for some ugly panning and rather shocking framing
But I was wondering if any has some advice they could offer me for covering live events? Dos, donts, guidance etc.
I do have some of the footage on youtube, but its a bit too embarassing to show to the pros

Another must is a lightweight, flexible jumper as Adam mentioned. 6ft usually does the trick. The fiber variety will cost you the most, at about $700 from Mohawk last I checked.
That's all I need to cover my bases, the rest is just luxury..

It's a very sexy solution, especially if you can have sled specific cabling made to fit your application.

I was only using a pilot at this event, but all this info is great to know.

/nerd-mode I warn you, its a professional computer gaming event. And yes I'm in there.
I'm the one that looks like a sack tied in the middle with a steadicam strapped on
