Want to see a real, professional Director and Technical Director in action, working together, in an incredibly high pressure, high visibility program like the Tony Awards?

Thanks to +Jason Cleanthes for passing along something that really got me smiling from ear to ear. This is how the sausage is made, people. 

Sure, I TD shows here at TWiT, but it's a much different story than what you see in this video. At TWiT, the TD is the live producer, camera operator, sound mixer, stage director (sometimes), and lighting technician, along with switching the live show.

In an environment like the Tony Awards, one person couldn't possibly do all of those things simultaneously. So you have what you see here: A Director (the guy yelling numbers) telling the TD (the guy switching the video) and the camera people (each camera operator has a number) which camera to take and when. You also hear toward the end that he cues the music. This is only a part of his role.

The Director is the conductor of the visual orchestra that is the switched live video program... In this case, the opening sequence to the 2013 Tony Awards which, by all accounts, was an incredibly orchestrated event. If you haven't watched the opening sequence from the show, check it out for sure, but only AFTER watching this video from behind the scenes. Then you'll have a sense of just how complex this has to be.

Watching this video makes me realize just how awesome it would be to sit in that director's chair. It's no easy feat in and of itself, especially on a project as detailed as the Tony Awards. When teaching my class on Live Media Production, students would often ask if a TriCaster is used at the Academy Awards. Pretty safe to say that, no, it's not. But the concept is the same. I'd explain how a live event like the big awards shows on TV are the pinnacle of live production, the scale of which is unprecedented. The total number of cameras, the number of people working their own specialized roles, but together, they are able to pull of something incredibly impressive. And watching this video shows you that scale perfectly.

Maybe someday I'll be yelling those numbers myself... cause watching this video really gets my blood pumping something fierce. Enjoy!!!

It is ridiculous most people at Google+ on their profile do not have the option to send email in the heading there on their profile. They mostly don't have that option checked, the only way to reach them is to comment in their posts...
