Our church has just been offered a weekly tv show deal and accepted it. We plan to begin starting easter sunday running 2 stationary side cameras and a pivot, zoom capable camera in the middle using the Video Toaster switch board with all new equipment. The video will be broadcasted a week prior to being filmed. I have been asked to be the switchboard operator and video editor because I have the most experience with video production (not much but the most). The problem is I have little experience with live switchboard control and could use a crash course in just about every aspect of it. Being the switchboard operator means that I will also be the director of the whole program and could use some tips on filming theory. I absorb electronic abilities and information and I can guaruntee I will learn fast. But I need a crash course and any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Taylor.

Oh, you must be using the new Submersible Video Toaster with the self-reversing Time Expender plug-in. I'm considering getting one, as long as I can wire it to get paid before I use it. :lol:

I assume you meant the video will be recorded a week prior to being broadcast. :)

What are you guys doing for lighting, sound?
What about keying titles and subtitles? Will you be keying them live or will that be done in post?

The center camera you described, is that on a remote head, or will there be an operator on it?

At its simplest form with 3 cameras, you will be looking for 1 camera to keep a wide/master shot, with the other 2 getting close-ups / reaction shots.
Its not hard to make it look good, but it requires good understanding and communication between you and the operators.

All the best
