Our ENG teams would jump from hole to hole, chasing the daily leaders as they played through the course. We targeted approach shots on longer holes (par 4’s and 5’s) and putts on shorter par 3’s. Post-event, we captured interviews with winning athletes and coaches and beauty shots of the course to help set the scene.
After each shoot day, ENG teams handed off content to a media manager who organized and uploaded all footage to the cloud. Next, our producing and editing teams were able to review footage, log clips, and ID key moments from each day. Finally, our editors assembled several highlight packages for integration into the recap shows.
Once our editor completed all highlight packages, BMG scheduled a studio taping session which incorporated virtual set technology and a Big West-branded virtual set designed by our in-house creative team. We had play-by-play physically on-site with our analyst joining us remotely via Talkshow. Talent added color to the highlight packages and contributed their thoughts and analysis on the winning teams and players.
Once each studio taping was completed, our editing team assembled the final programs, inserted commercial breaks, and trimmed them to time. Our engineering team then played out the final program live on ESPN+.
