Last Thursday, I filmed Episode 2 of Sports Talk Radio Show. I sat back and filmed Matthew and Derek talk sports, not only do they know what they’re talking about they also made it interesting to watch and to listen to. Filming this show was a really good experience for me because it gave me an opportunity to try out different shots and see what angles I could and could not do for the show. It was really my first time behind the camera given the opportunity to do whatever I wanted to.
It really opened my eyes to how shows are created. There must be ideas of what the editor really wants or doesn’t want when it comes to different shots. Before the show, I talked with Derek a little, the editor, about what direction he was taking in the show like what kind of shots he wanted, the different angles and that really helped me out a lot. Being fairly know in the behind the scenes work of integrated media, I feel like I need to get as much experience as I need so in the future I won’t need to be given so much direction in what is or isn’t correct for a shoot.
I think that with filming the Sports Talk Show, I can really gain experience in filming and with the help of Derek I can tremendously improve my editing. I can’t wait until I have another opportunity to work with them on the Talk Show, I may even do some editing for the final cut!
