This is the third TV production I’ve worked on since being certified as a Community Producer. I served as Camera Operator on A Fiddle Around Town, which will air on October 18th, 2013, from 7:00 – 7:30PM (Time Warner channel 34, Cablevision channel 67, RCN channel 82, Verizon channel 42, or online worldwide at http://bricartsmedia.org/community-media/bcat-tv-network on channel one).
My camerawork focussed on the dancing segment by Irish dancer Siobhán Butler, with secondary and interview shots of Cady Finlayson, the host, and B-Roll of Cady and Vita Tanga (who took the photos for this post).
While camera operation could be considered easy (to those with experience), standing on your feet for hours and remaining balanced is not. Comfortable clothing, especially footwear, is a must. Here I’m wearing a slim fit polo shirt, slim fit khaki pants, and Adidas Adipure Trainer 360 sneakers. The clothing was lightweight, breathable, and moved well in action. The sneakers are designed for Crossfit and other physical activity that is demanding on the feet. They have a supportive heel cup and a comfortable footbed.
