Womens RollerDerby

High Octane Event Videography

Background

This is where we cut our teeth on Live Event Videography - some may say it was a baptism of fire!

Roller Derby is a very complex sport where there are more referees than there are participants - so a big difficulty is giving direction to the camera operators.

Operation

To shoot an event meant arriving at the venue approx 3 hours before start-time.  Securing the camera positions because there was always a good crowd at a bout, and it was necessary to make sure that each operator had clear view of the action and sufficient room to pan through almost 270 degrees.  And that is the big difference between RollerDerby action adn teh corporate event - the camera operator is on his/her feet all the time, and the camera never stops.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
