Pre-event meeting: We met with Scott on location so we could get a good idea of what was required for his event. We talked about the how many cameras were needed, the look and feel, filming dates, production deadlines and budget. The objectives were:
* Film each match and cover all angles
* Capture the atmosphere and buzz during the event
* Simulate a professional televised boxing match.
* Produce the video within the set budget and time scale

CASE STUDY - EVENT FILMING
What we did: Before starting this project we felt we needed to do a little research. We watched a number of professional boxing matches and then planned how to position the cameras in the most effective way during the shoot.
Event day: We arrived early so the graduate camera crew had time to position the cameras. We checked the camera angles and lighting with the floor manager and directed the compere, making sure we captured his announcements.
We filmed behind-the-scenes as the contenders were getting warmed up. We later used this footage as an opening sequence for the matches.
