The Cavaliers Camera Calls

(YouTube link)

This video is of a marching band drum and bugle corps performance, but that's not what it's really about. It's a look into the job of camera calling featuring producer Tim Blair, taken at the 2004 DCI (Drum Corps International) World Championship. I briefly worked as a TV switcher many years ago, and marveled at how the news director managed to herd cats get a live newscast on air every day. How much more difficult is it to direct cameras for a live event in which you're not controlling the action? Listen and see! -via Viral Viral Videos

A drum corps does march, but it is not a "marching band". It will play in parades, but its primary function is to perform at incredibly well-choreographed drum corps shows.

Filing live tv events is an art form, but the playing field is really just a large stage for their performance.
