Summary

I am a full-time, free-lance production crew member and actor and have been working on sets for more than a decade, wearing many hats from directing, gripping, camera work & PA-ing. I take direction well, have good set awareness and love production work.

Camera Utility ESPN/ABC Sports College Football and Basketball

ABC — Sports (TV) — ABC Sports Details
9/17 – Current

On set-up days, I work as part of a team of Utilities, running all A/V & power cables from the truck(s) into the stadium and into position. On game days, I work directly with the hand-held, on-the-field/court Cameraman, carrying, dropping and re-coliing hundreds of feet of cable using the over/under technique, so that they can move freely all over/around the field. After the games, I assist in the breakdown & load out, out of the stadium, into the trucks.

On set-up days, we unload the SkyCam trucks into various NFL/College Stadiums and move the SkyCam reels and computer systems to the four upper corners of the stadium, where they are assembled and mounted into position. From there, we run thousands of feet of fiber optic cable around the stadium, connecting the four reels/computers to the main system in the control room, so that the Pilot and Camera Operator can fly/control the rig. On game days, we sit with and monitor the SkyCam reels/computer systems in the Catwalk (or similar position) throughout the game, and assist with the breakdown and load out after the game is completed.
