In February 2020, TVT was brought in by Park Pictures to tech manage the first ever dramatic play performed at Madison Square Garden. To Kill a Mockingbird was performed by the Broadway cast for 18,000 New York City students in what was reviewed as massive success. We were tasked with managing the multi-cam live cut for iMag along with the overall capture and delivery for post.
Although we consider ourselves camera agnostic, we are proud to include the fact that we used our custom Blackmagic Ursa Mini camera package on such a high profile shoot. The Washington Post also wrote,
“Though critics were asked not to review the event, I can’t imagine anyone would mind if I noted the extraordinary technical care that was taken to give the students an entirely “legit” experience. The amplification and camera work — with the performance projected onto four giant video screens — were superior. Sorkin’s script was performed in its entirety, scathing epithets and all.”
It was truly an awesome experience being included on this production for many reasons, and a big shout out to everyone on the crew that made it happen. Finally, TVT covered trucking and logistics for the camera and terminal package, pre-production, on-site management, as well as union payroll for our crew.
