Transcript of Multicam
What could it mean?
A mode of production
for television using multiple cameras
simultaneously to record
or broadcast content.
It can be in a controlled
environment such as
a soundstage or at
Let's figure out how
that was filmed.
Coverage of Action
Communicating Meaning to the Viewer
Maintaining Viewer Interest
Multi-Camera Simultaneous Recording
Coverage of Action -
MC Ensures that all events/actions that occur are captured - Nothing can be missed.
Communicating Meaning to the Viewer -
MC allows for more coverage which means more context can be given to events happening on screen.
Visual Style -
A carefully planned variety of camera angles and camera movements can create a visual spectacle and therefore a higher quality show.
Maintaining Viewer Interest -
MC allows the editor or vision mixer to change the shot whenever he/she feels the viewer might be getting restless or bored.
Controlled Environment -
This offers control of all the elements involved in a shoot allowing you to get the best from MC in all of the other ways mentioned here.
Multi-Camera Simultaneous Recording -
All cameras record at the same time and so save time (and therefore money) on set and in the edit.
Why do I need to know?
Unit 23 Multi-Camera Techniques
By the end of this unit you will...
...be able to understand programme formats that use this mode of production and explain why.
...have planned a Multi-Camera production.
...have performed an operational role in a 'live' Multi-Camera production.
Watch any Multi-Camera
production and draw a
diagram floor plan of
how you think their
Cameras are set up.
Assignment for Tomorrow
8 out of ten cats
nevermind The Buzzocks
Match of the day
Whos line is it anyway?
SKY TV has commissioned
to come up with a new Multi-Camera show and they have given you a million pound budget.

Brief proposal and treatment
An idea for set design
List of talent/contributors
Relevant examples of similar programmes
NEW MULTI-CAMERA PROGRAMME
Unit 23 – GC2 & GC3
You have learnt about the reasons for Multi Camera set-ups and practiced a studio shoot, now you must Produce a LIVE 14 – 15 min programme segment using the Multi-camera setup in the TV Studio.
You can do any theme you want (musical performance/talk show/game show/chat show/critique show etc) but you must have a presenter, opening or closing credits, logo, jingle, at least 2 x VTs and guests/contributors. Your VT’s cannot be longer than the live action.
Individually or in a pair prepare a pitch for 28/09/15 proposing your programme idea, format and visual style.
Successful pitches will include a programme title, proposal and brief treatment, set design ideas, list of talent/contributors, estimated floor plans/diagrams, and relevant examples of similar programmes.
The class will vote for their favourite ideas and the 3 best ideas will be produced into 3 LIVE multi-camera programmes, with each class member fulfilling a specified practical role.
You will be assessed on your individual research, planning, pre-production and team contribution as well as your practical role.
