CBS Final 4
For the second year in a row Director of Photography Jim Farrell chose Matt and Clear Cut Audio to provide ENG sound for him during the CBS coverage of the Final Four.
This is a weeks worth of work, shooting interviews, player arrivals and scenic of whatever beautiful city we happen to be in. This year its New Orleans.
On game days I set aside my duties as an ENG Audio Tech because my cameraman and I are now working out of the game truck and are tethered directly to the truck. We shoot player arrivals in the tunnel and follow them out to the court. We are also on standby in the event of an injury. Once the game is over we are in the thick of things in the winning locker rooms getting player interviews and the coaches speach.
Its a very long week of work, but is a lot of fun and CBS crew is amazing!
