Hits Radio Live
Radio City Hits
Hits Radio Live is a traveling stadium event, hosted by the largest pop stations in their area. I was tasked with filming the backstage interviews alongside directing the stars by saying certain lines to the camera (e.g. ‘You are listening to Hits Radio’).
Setting up the staging, lighting, and camera operation for the interviews within a time limit.
Directing the stars of the event (e.g. Cheryl, Little Mix, George Ezra, Rita Ora, Olly Murs, Rudimental, etc) to say the companies’ lines with an upbeat tone. This was done in a polite and efficient manner as the stars would have to move on to the next part of the pre-show press run.
Transferring the files within the cameras to the editors so they could begin editing and uploading content.
Operating a two-camera set-up (one wide, one close-up), making sure that both star and interviewer were in focus, and given the appropriate amount of time on screen.
