Adventures in Multi-Camera Televsion Part XII: Studio Camera Person for TV’s “The Jump”

31 May

Working as studio camera person for TV’s The Jump and other shows on MNN-TV has influenced my work as a multi-camera director. 

The Jump, produced by Vaughn Oliver’s DJTR Media & Production Company and broadcast on the country’s largest public access station MNN-TV, showcases a beautiful and eclectic array of musical talent. Live bands perform in studio under the best lighting, sound, camera work and direction money can’t buy. Vaughn Oliver transformed the studio into a space comparable to notable shows on network and pay cable television. The Jump is public access’ answer to PBS’ Great Performances and MTV’s Unplugged.

It’s been great being part of a team that was encouraged to take risks: deliberately soft focus shots; deep close-ups; panning, zooming and trucking; dissolves; straight cuts, and starlight filters were all techniques we employed under masterful direction by Vaughn Oliver and others.

Check out some of the episodes of The Jump that I worked as camera person for. You can see me in the show’s opening in the control room on the right :)

    Public access is the future. The present. The voice of the people. Thanks for being.
