14 Jun Go To Team at Wrestlemania 33 – Part 2
Continued from Part 1…
Read up on our Chicago cameraman‘s experience at Wrestlemania 33:
Wrestlemania for me was a relatively short and very fast-paced experience. I arrived in balmy Orlando on Saturday night and grabbed one of our Sony F5 packages from Roggg and slapped on the gorgeous Canon 17-120 Cine zoom lens which would be my weapon of choice for the weekend.
Sunday morning we got started with a ride-along to the stadium with a few of the WWE Superstars. I hopped in the backseat with my camera along with the audio bag and rolled for the entire 25-minute drive to Camping World Stadium. From there we were given the assignment to follow and document a few of the Superstars as they prepared for the biggest match of their careers to that point. This included shooting B-Roll of their preparation, makeup and wardrobe, as well as quick stand-up interviews backstage before and after they hit the ring!
We also shot some awesome slow-mo footage of the final match and the impressive fireworks finale before handing the last of our cards to WWE Network‘s DIT and heading back to the hotel to catch a bit of sleep before doing it all again the next day!
Being a part of Wrestlemania 33 was a special and unforgettable experience and I was glad to have the opportunity to help tell the story for one of my favorite clients!
Stay tuned for Part 3…
