Hard Camera Operator
October 2010 – Present
This role involves a mix of technical and creative skills. During a live event the main duty of a camera operator is to capture the action while predicting storylines, anticipating shots, and understanding your role within the team as set by the Director. Not always being guided by the Director, you must also stay aware of your responsibilities while creatively representing the live action unfolding in front of your lens. This requires a high degree of concentration, listening and multitasking. Other duties include camera basic operation, assembly and troubleshooting.
