My questions probably seem to be a bit noob but I want to be prepared:
I have my first "Live on Tape" Gig on Thursday. It's a TV-Show. I'm new to TV stuff, I normally do fiction, so I don't really know the shooting procedures.
The cam is a Sony DXC with Triax. I get a Triax adapter cable and I know how to run the cable.
The chief of the broadcasting van told me, the cam would be around 12 kg (26,5 lbs). I this a normal weight for TV cam? (Unfortunately I do not have a special camera plate, so I have to use the tripod plate.)
How does the shooting normally proceeds? How long is an "usual" take on TV respectively how often can you dock the rig? Any tips and tricks?
Thanks in advance for some constructive answers for my newbie questions
